One of those days.


Today was one of those extraordinarily rare days that just don't happen. I'm having my final exams this and the next week and today I was writing algebra. The test lasts 3 hours and is devised into 4 sectors of escalating difficulty. So here's what happened.
1 hour has passed since the test began and I have already solved Ύ of the test. Now, with 2 whole hours left I was focusing on that annoying as fuck sub-question of the second section. At first I thought “What the hell, I have 2 hours, I can do this”, but as time went by and I literally had no fucking clue whatsoever on how to solve this, stress kicked in giving way to a minor panic attack.(At this point I know this sounds a bit like overreacting but trust me, where I live, these exams are the alpha and omega. It's like 18 years of preparation just to achieve a high score in these exams). Minutes later, I was desperate. Clock started racing, my mind was empty and I had 2 full A4 pages filled with whatever junk popped in my head.
5 minutes before the bell rings, I decide to write all that junk to the clean paper and hope to get even a point for something remotely related. And then something magic happened. As I was letting my pen down, literally seconds before the bell, it all became clear. I wrote down the answers and left with a big ass smile on my face... Unbelievable.
