Well, it's been a long year, and you have studied and analyzed a great deal of European history. There were fun times and there were frustrating times. There were late nights and there were early mornings (is this getting a bit too Dickensian?). Through it all, you have worked to gain an understanding of the past and to develop the skills to critically analyze events and their consequences.
The end is in sight. The finish line is near. And now is the time to harness whatever energy you have left into one final push to the end. The ball is in your court. Now go grab your prize.
