Research Language Log (4): Prophetic Translation Exercise?

While studying for my German exam today, I came across this sentence in the exercise list:

Morgen um dieses Zeit werde ich meine Prüfung überstanden haben. Bis Weihnachten wird das alles vergessen sein.
Which translated roughly means,
Tomorrow at this time, I will have survived my test. By Christmas, all will be forgotten.

Here's to hoping that was a practice sentence rather than a prophetic one.

I also occasionally post annotations that I make as I read Cormac McCarthy at "Reading Cormac McCarthy."
