Damnit, this semester went by too fast. We could barely feel it getting war-mer outside, and then, exams!Pesky little things, those module tests. There are so many of them, one hasto wonder if we are going to get graded for sleeping, too, in the future? Of course, sitting in my English course right now and looking around, I can‘thelp but notice that some of us already receive credits for being alive andbreathing regularly.I can feel their pain. The agony of involuntary wisdom.But thanks to some rule changes that came with the new system of bachelorand master degrees, those types of students wont pass Level I Sprachpraxis.Or so I sincerely hope. Which means that they are going to drop after 2 se-mesters, idealy, while the people before them dropped only after 6 or moreyears, mostly because of not being ably to make it through the finals. No oneever told them the truth, when truth should have been told:„You‘re no good at English! Better study something you‘re good at!“Most of us „leftovers“, that is you and me, feel a different kind of pain later on.The agony of wanting to gain wisdom, but not being alowed to do so. If youever tried to study abroad, you know excactly what I am talking about. Thinkingback to our Sit-In this semesters, I really can‘t shake the feeling that insteadof visiting the chancelors office, we should have paid the AAA a friendly visit.But for that, a third kind of pain would have to be overcome. You surely knowwhat I mean, right?In this issue, you can see what can be done by only a handfull of students allover the Institut. There are reviews and lots of photos from the <blank>fest,a short review and another round of photos from the latest theatre perfor-mance by the Red Bricks, and of course lots of creative writing and opinionpieces. We wish you all the best for your exams and a great „free time“ (joke-alert) in hopefully warmer and drier weather than we have enjoyed so far.Yours,<blank>
Ah, the agony ...
