Character: Nerdy Me (or as I like to call myself.. Seriously serious)
Scene: Few hours before an exam
Let us discover what thoughts I have before an exam! Why? Because they are hilarious.
I just finished my 11th-grade exams and what is the first thing I do? Write down my messy and hyperactive (mixed with super happy) thoughts!
Well… being seriously serious about all exams, I have quite an experience before I sit down to take my test. My day might begin at 5 (before boards) or 7 (before college exams). Either way, I sneak in a few hours of sleep, mostly around 5 or 6, and then wake up like a hurricane has hit my house as soon as the alarm rings. The alarm just dies without any hopes of the snooze button being pressed and I begin my day. I freshen up within 10 mins! Well, freshen up is a bit of a stretch considering how scary I look after it… but anyways, I switch on the lights, disturb my sister and then start studying.
Once I start, there is no chance that I am stopping until I absolutely have to. The whole while I function like a machine and just take in all the words I possibly can. I just get up to revise in the morning, but somehow, I freak out more than I like to admit.
The thoughts in my mind look something like: why do I have to give exams? What if I missed a page of the textbook while revising and there are questions from that ONE page? What if the teacher was in a bad mood while setting the paper? When can I go and sleeppppp? Is that an important chapter that I didn’t revise? What if I learnt the wrong subject someday?
This is just a small peek into my thoughts honestly. I have much more weird and obscure thoughts which have no rational basis. Soon after, my mom enters and tries to get me to stop. She tries her best to get me to stop freaking out as well as to stop studying. I have never been a big supporter of the ‘Don’t-study-till-the-last-moment’ side but my mom has.
Then there comes a 2 min fight where in the end I tell her how important it is to ace the test and she gives up! Soon, I close my books and fix myself up (CAUSE OF THE STUPID ‘VIDEO ON’ RULE). Then comes a time of pure anxiety as I try my best to just stay awake and give the test without running away.
The story after the test is quite different so that is for another time!
Thank you for reading! See you soon!
