Today is final year Math exam. The final paper of the whole 4 years. I woke up late in the morning to find out I haven't been preparing well. I depended on the first few hours of the final day to top up myself with formulas, but then, I got up stinkingly late.
I have a bus to catch in few minutes. The gap between the exams were way too much, such that I even forgot if I still used the college bus. If it was the public bus, I am in a much messier situation.
I had to get ready very quickly. Taking bath is "not" mandatory during exams. Got out of the bed, brushed in 3 secs, washed my face, finished my morning routine and was searching for some pressed cloths. None were in my cupboard. My brother was still asleep. Searched his cupboard to find a neatly pressed t-shirt. Pulled out a jean(who presses them anyways) from my cupboard and got ready.
Now I have this bus situation to solve. But I anyway called my friend who goes to college by car. He was the one almost responsible for this situation. Me and this friend of mine had a race on how many Movies we could finish watching "before" the exams are over.
When he reached, I was pretty sure he lost the movie race. But he was decently prepared for the exam. I was in a state of panic. Its a hour ride to the college. I made him tell what ever things he had prepared. Getting taught by someone is more effective than reading yourself, especially, just before writing the exam. This as well did not make much difference. He was a bad teacher and I was a very bad listener!
We reached the college. Many noticed I hadn't taken bath that day, assuming I did not waste a single minute. Only I know how badly I had prepared. No arrears, except for the final paper. Damn! Who will hire me now?! Apart from these, there were many other things running in my mind. Including the "horse head" scene from The Godfather, "Say what" scene from Pulp fiction, the office scene from Fight Club etc.
We are now sitting in the exam room. To make things worse, we had the toughest invigilator known to me, my mom!
Thats when I realized I was sleeping my ass off, in the middle of Sunday! Dreams can be lethal!
We never had a Math paper after first year. I did not travel in college bus after first year. We were never allowed to bring bikes or cars to college nor wear t-shirts. And I never used to watch that many movies during college days. Most importantly, I never use to miss my bath :) Missed my bus a plenty times though! Even though many facts weren't right, the feeling about the exams were.
Waking up after making a fool of myself in my dream, I realized I left my shoes in the terrace with the rain pouring in! I had asked my mom to wake me up if it rains, which she conveniently forgot.
It was while picking up the shoes I realized what a nightmare the exams used to be. If not for these stupid exams, I would love to go to college again!
I was thinking about the title for this post and came up with Examophobia. When I googled about it, there really is a wiki for it :)
