To imply that this is a direct sequel to the last blog post would not be technically accurate. It is more of a loose connection since this is the post-exam blog post, while the previous one was a pre-exam blog post. But there’s no need to be pedantic.
I guess what I should be saying is: “Exams are over, hurrah.”
Yes, it is true, the examinations are over. Do I hear doubt in your hypothetical voice? No, for I stand before you, none worse for wear, having completed my exams, most short of blood, and emotionally disturbed. That’s pretty standard for exam periods actually, you have to get used to it.
What did I learn? I mean, apart from all that stuff that I learnt for the exams. I learnt that revision is good, eating is important, and the human mind has a remarkable ability for procrastination. Never before have I wasted so much time on such frivolous pursuits, such as the application of inductive reasoning to mental memes, or planning a party.
And yet it was a pleasant crazy time, which could also be said for my entire year. I guess since, for us, term time is over, I am, in practical purposes, no longer a first year.
The second year, I am told, is extremely hard. I am told the third year is even harder.
Yet, as surely as the sun rises, and that people make repetitive metaphors about the sun rising, the second year will no doubt be much like the first, with a large amount of work, surrounded by an engaging body of peers. I hope that during the summer I will come back refreshed and ready to hit the ground running.
Then again, I could lose my glasses, and stumble around for three months practically blind, and it would /still/ be better than losing them during an exam week.
 Disclaimer: This is not intended in anyway to be a Structured Query Language pun. However, some may interpret it in this way, and for this I apologise.
 Not really.
 In the body of the blog post. Of course, in these footnotes I can be idle and pointless as I like, sometimes requiring to read the body of the post in order to understand the context of the footnote.
 Apart from the ways where I /am/ worse for the wear.
 This is not a regular expression, or more accurately it is, intending to only match the meaning of the word ‘am’. I guess it should be technically /^am$/ if I was being pedantic. Regular expressions are actually incredibly powerful, provided you understand them, otherwise they are a haze of meaningless symbols. Actually, that’s pretty much true for all of computer science.
 I /should/ clarify that all my blood donations seem to be during exam periods, and that exams, being high stress events, tend to trigger slightly more vigorous mental states. I am assured that this is completely normal.
 Those who know me personally can probably already paraphrase that: there was going to be a big party, that all my friends were invited to. I even invited my best friend, but he was otherwise indisposed, and of course, I don’t have any other friends because of my brash demeanour. It is written down in some form of document, along with comments regarding my parents. That’s somewhat amusing.
 By second years.
 By third years.
 This footnote intentionally left blank.
 And no doubt spit out even more clichés in these blog posts, you poor poor reader.
