Yeah, I missed you too. I can't remember the last time I did a post, and I feel pretty guilty for leaving you guys with nothing to read for AGES (I'm joking, you probably have much better things to do than read all about my life).
Not much has been happening; the reason I've been neglecting you was because of (yes, you guessed it) EXAMS. Big, bad, stressful exams. Which is also kind of the reason I missed this important meeting- I'm just super stressed out- like, my brain is literally fried!
Why is everything important happening around exams- I can't do revision, exams AND everything else on top!!!
Exams aren't great fun; I know they're for my own good, and if I can get over the fact that I hate them, I might just scrape good enough grades to get into Uni.*Sigh* Again, my brain is totally fried.
A few tips for dealing with exam stress:
Before The Exam- Don't Freak Out
You know as well as I do that you've prepared for the exam, you've done a lot of revision (and if you haven't, then maybe you should be stressed out). So there's no point in standing outside the exam hall
thinking, "What if I haven't done enough revision?" Relax, and prepare your brain for your (insert time here) long exam.
During The Exam- Scan Through The Exam
Pick out which questions you can answer the quickest, and which ones you need to take time and think about. That way, you can pace yourself, and make the best use of your time.
After The Exam- L.I.F.E.G.O.E.S.O.N.
As the immortal Noah and the Whale once sang, life goes on. The exam is over! You might realize you made a HUGE mistake on one of the questions (I know I did on way more than just one question), but don't dwell on it. You can't change it, so there's no point agonising over it afterwards. Instead, reward yourself- go shopping, eat cake, play COD (not my cup of tea, but each to their own, I guess) HAVE FUN :D
Good luck with your exams, and I'm sure you'll ace them :)
p.s. i'll try and do more posts about awesome stuff in the near future
