I find that I get a pleasant rush after finishing exams well; I feel energetic and creative and hungry for work. Serendipitously, there's a nasty memory allocation bug in my project at work -- just the thing! :)
Also had a delicious onion quiche at Dominique's -- the local boulangerie-cum-patisserie.
P.S. yo, scoutf, what's that song called, anyhow? ("נפגשת עם עצמי במקומות זרים...")
