So today, exam times technically started. Not for me though. I still have two more days to study for my Chemistry exam. I’ve never been good with Chemistry, cuz I’m more of a bio guy. But this year I’ve maintained a GPA of 4.0 in it, and I think its probably the first time I’ve had a 4.0 in a chem course. So I feel confident about it.
Nevertheless, I love exam times, even though it’s the most hated time of the year. It’s mostly because I get to sit with my friends, and we study together, and we bond. I feel the closest to my friends during this time, cuz like, they help me out, I help them out, There’s a positive energy flowing around.
It’s not just now that I have this feeling. Exam times have always been fun for me. When I was younger, it felt great coming home early from an exam and watch dumb British morning shows. Even thinking about it makes me feel nostalgic. Idk, I never really got anxious about exams.
But university is different.
I feel more anxious.
I feel more in danger of failing.
And of course I doubt myself every now and then.
Being a decent student, Imma let you know I’m totally fine with it.
This is to tell you, University is supposed to be hard. It’s supposed to be like this.
Even the smartest of us will fail one of these days, and its absolutely normal.
We are supposed to, or we won’t learn how to deal with failure ever.
