Not my worst day…

The pass list for my course at university was released last week and we now know our results, whether we will have to retake and if we will be proceeding to the next year. It was such a bittersweet moment as I was so pleased that I had done well but also so sad that many of my friends were unhappy. I find it really hard to feel joy when people I care about cannot share in it with me.

Throughout the years I have always found that very short periods of intense revision works for me and has led to my best performance. However, it is usually not a pretty process and during exam season I was an absolute mess – this is what happens when you give yourself two weeks to cover an entire year’s worth of work.

If you’re happy and you know it, clap your hands
