Exam Time

image credits
That one time in every semester, where we all end up studying, praying for good marks, and generally giving the attention those books deserve.  I have a love hate relationship with exams. Sometimes, when I have studied a lot, I love them. Other times, I feel bad about having to do one.
But what always makes me feel nostalgic is the going on to the exam hall leaving the bags behind with only the pens, and a water bottle. Sitting there waiting wand waiting cursing the time for being so slow and hating the invigilator for keeping on talking about rules, and being unable to even get a peek at the paper lying right in front of me. Having problems with the pin drop silence and always being the one who makes most noise, thanks to me always getting desks with uneven legs.
Then comes the part where I brush through questions, make up my mind which ones to do, reading reading, and hating the invigilator once again for giving 30 minutes to read and there I sit unable to write anything even though my head is bursting with all the things I remember from the notes because it’s reading time! So I write write write and get a bit of RSI, and still write write, and somewhere in between realize how poor my handwriting has gotten since my golden days at Ifthithaah. After sometime, feeling like I am the only one writing and looking up to see everyone lost in their papers, and then observing people to give my hands a rest. And then again its all write write till I finish! Then raising my hand and hating the invigilator for not noticing even when it has been up for almost a minute, and feeling like a complete idiot.
AND Finally, I walk as quick as I can, and get out of the exam hall. *sigh* I just stand there taking a long breath and head to library to look at some cook books to make up for my hungriness and waiting for the rest of classmates to finish.
Well, two more exams to go, and then I will have some time to do some cooking I guess. All those looking at cookbooks makes me want to be the nest Martha Stewart. =P
Good luck to everyone.

Oh Hello!

Hey guys! I am alive! =) I have been MIA for a few weeks now, ei. Well, I took a week off internet because there was just too much going on. I needed some time off to read some books and focus on my studies, and I have been busy as a bee this week. Actually I have two assignments due tomorrow, and none of them are complete and yet I am here watching America’s Next Top Model. *sigh*
On the bright side, this is my last week of studies, and I am getting a study break before exams. YAY. Also we are going to go to Thai Wok tomorrow night for a dinner with uni-mates. ^^ I have never had Thai cuisine, so this is very exciting for me.
There is so much going right now and I would love to tell everyone all about it but maybe another time. For now, be happy and eat Toffees. I love them. They are my instant mood brighter candy!
Here’s a shout out to my crazy friend who is a good normal kinda guy who made the saddest brightest! Thanks for being you and keeping up with my babble. <3
