So I got in line for postponements when they told us to, worrying all the while that the state government would not give half a shit about my frivolous rocking-out-related excuse, but I was pleasantly surprised that the administrative person I had to talked to jumped to far more reasonable conclusions. She asked me right away, "full-time student?" I say, "yeah". "Where do you go?" "CMU" "When does school get out?" "Well, finals week ends in about a week, I think?" "Okay, we'll summon you when it's more convenient".
Never mind that I have had no final exams for at least two semesters.
After that I took the chance to wander around downtown a while, sketched some lovely intertwining highways, and found the downtown branch of the library, the library always being a reliable bearer of sweet, sweet internet.
