I’ve also realized that I can no longer write for three hours straight without craving for a painkiller. Sitting for the exam wasn’t just mentally draining, but physically exhausting. You get so used to not writing with a pen beyond a few minutes, that your hand aches and begs for a break.
As it is, I am prone to distractions. In the three hour exam, people feel the need to eat and drink a lot. After every hour, people sit back, and eat everything, from salads to pizza slices. (Okay, not pizza, but you get the message.) The trouble is, if you don’t have anything to eat, you just end up feeling hungry looking at others pigging away. So you plan ahead and pack munchies and power drinks. That’s my excuse. Excuse me, I need to stop dawdling online. I still have an exam left.
