The Confessions Of Exam Season...

I wasn't going to do a blog post tonight as I am so tired from a busy busy day that I didn't want my lack of energy to affect my blog. However this topic is quite appropriate.

Summer term for most students is the worst term of them all. I've felt this way since I did my GCSEs.

Exam Season.
You feel guilty when you're not staring at a book and when you're staring at a book you are worried you're not staring at it enough. It's a never ending cycle. I even feel guilty in my sleep. 

It's every man for himself out there. I'd never thought I'd see the day I'd be fighting over library books with complete strangers.  My university has even introduced 'library police', monitoring seats whos owners have left unattended for more then 5 minutes and removing you from the building if you so much as breathe. 

It really is every man for himself. What were once kind 'Hellos' and 'Goodbyes' are now grunts of 'Don't even talk to me right now'. It's a cry for help.

This time of year you realise all those lectures and seminars you attended never actually went in and you spend 2-3 weeks before your exams learning everything from the start. It's also that time of year you realise how interesting your Facebook page, that hasn't had a single update within the past 20 minutes, can really be.

Then come the drastic mood changes. Most days if I have made it to 5pm without a complete meltdown then I'd call it a good day.

Exam period means clocks go backwards, bedtimes get later, mornings get earlier, smiles turn to frowns, food gets crappier and so on.

But hang in there students. We're all in this together and we'll make it to that last exam. We'll then meet in the pub, erase it all and do it all again the same time next year.

Does it ever end?!

P.S. Yes that is a photo of myself sleeping in the library. Times get tough.
