EXAMS!! Just a few more days to go and we are gonna undergo the same process of torture that we go through term after term. The frustration of not getting stuff into your head and all the tension that surrounds us is so intense that it all just gets dramatically humorous sometimes:P
I remember last term Dolly and I thought it would be brilliant if we “accidentally” slipped in the bathroom and broke our right hand….. That way we wouldn’t have to give our exams. A pretty lame-ass idea but if you are a last minute student like me then it seems like an incredible idea.
Our class is a sight to see, on the day of the exams – actions speak louder than words, everyone’s walking around in the corridor flapping their arms up and down and pacing here to there, mugging definitions, equations and formulas. In the background you’ll hear the “all the best’s” and “best of luck’s”. Side by side the teachers are yelling at us to get into the classrooms and greet are exam papers. After that fraction of the entire exam period is over a few of us go ballistic discussing the paper, a few cry over the fact that they are losing 2 marks… a few just don’t care. This happens day after day till the final moment when we finish writing are very last exam, the joy that is experienced when we rest our pens down after putting down the last full stop is just too awful for words.
After all this, we get a weekend to enjoy…It’s a tradition to have a sleepover at my place. We watch movies, talk till 5am, eat tons of junk food, play monopoly(it can be real fun if you play with the right people) and pull a few pranks..
Then the entertaining times get over…….Its back to school, to face the cruel and bitter truth – PAPERS!! It’s the same scene term after term, year after year, girls are crying and some are jumping and screaming with glee…
I guess going through the exams is like a getting a fever or a flu. You feel sick to your stomach, all the studying makes you dizzy and makes your head spin. So for all of you who actually go through the exam fever - get well soon! For those of you who didnt get it - all the best!!
