Of exams.

Ever since I was in primary school, I have always wished that I could refer to books during exams.

I hated it that I had to memorize stuff.
I hated it that I had to study everything that was in the books, only to have them not appearing in exams.
I hated it that I had to read a single sentence over and over again, just to find that it's utterly impossible to understand it.

I wished and wished and wished that I could sit for an open book exam.

That'd be the day I'll finally secure myself an A without even having to study.

How wrong I was.

Try sitting for the Physics 1 open book exam.

You can take a million books into the exam hall and you still can't answer those damned questions.

University students are allowed to refer to books during exams. How fun. I can't wait to get there.

Whee.

Less than 24 hours before my Materials Science exam, I'm:


- Enjoying a hearty sushi buffet at Sakae Sushi with K. $16 per pax.
- Playing Audition, an online dance game which I've recently got addicted to.
- Crying over irrelevant stuff.
- Procrastinating.
- Sleeping.
- Animatedly discussing about 'un-academic' stuff.
- Boasting about how easy the past years are.

Less than 12 hours before my Materials Science exam, I'm:

- Blogging.
- Not studying.
- Considering playing a couple of rounds of Audition after blogging.
- Not taking into consideration the fact that I might feel sleepy the next day if I don't go to bed right now.
- Happily anticipating the day when exams are finally over.
- Feeling damn confident about Materials Science exam.

Is there something wrong with me, or what?

One day, my over-confidence is gonna eat me till there's nothing left.

Sigh.
