Theology Graduate Student Self-test

Pop quiz: Are you a theology graduate student?

You have 15 minutes to complete the exam; show your work.

You can tell that you are a theology graduate student because:
A) You only leave the research library grudgingly, after 6pm, on a Friday night.

B) While leaving the library, you realise that you can say goodnight to roughly 75% of your friends (who are remaining, working).

C) You have budgeted no more than two hours, including bicycling time, to attend a Friday night beginning of term party with other theology graduate students, where you can talk theology with friends, but you are secretly hoping to leave early so you can put in another hour or two reading theology before going to sleep.

D) You think that this is all quite funny, rather than bleak and depressing.

E) All of the above.

Time's up. Put your pencils down and stop writing.

The correct answer is F) None of the above. If you were a proper theology student you would have stopped reading by the time you realised that this was a jokey blog entry and gotten back to reading something serious. Or, if you're not a theology student, you wouldn't have wasted your time reading something so monumentally tedious and sad.
