The second day of the presentation for the master’s degree started from 9 AM.
Today is special; my student is presenting.
At 10 AM, the student started a 20-min presentation followed by 10-min questions & answers. I chaired.
He was very nervous and did not look confident. I became nervous, too.
After the presentation, the professors of a wide range of field started to ask questions. I became more nervous.
To my surprise, the student did not answer well; he did EXCELLENT. He understood what the professors were trying to ask and answered perfectly! I was thrilled.
From 3:40 PM, there was the final oral examination. This time, two professors and I posed more technical, detailed questions. The student properly answered to all the questions!
All students and teachers of the insitute had a small party at Manpuku Roh from 6:30 PM. I was happy and drank a lot of beer.
When I arrived home, Katya was surprised by how I smelled alcoholic (normally I do not drink too much). But I was happy and could not save it.
Then Surprise! Katya made me chocolates; today is Japanese Valentine’s day.
I almost forgot about it, so it was a true surprise. I took one. Yummy!
