My written English exam is tomorrow, and as you can see, I have decided to make life sweet for myself, as a sort of reward for good behavior. I can’t give you any specific examples, but I feel like I have behaved good lately. I mean… I have cleaned out my closet, tried to get a lot of exercise, moved all the stuff that was lying on the floor in my bedroom, and kept my colors colorful and summery for like two weeks now. I don’t know, in these privileged days, doesn’t that count as good behavior? It’s been hard.
Earlier, I googled “exam good food” or something of that nature to see if there were any recommendations regarding food that can help you stay motivated/focused/alive during an exam, because I always bring the most boring, demotivating, depressing food. Why? Because I am a sado-masochist, who is always on a diet. And because sometimes I forget. Well. I found a few academic forums, where people recommended the most AWFUL things. No offense to the people making the recommendations, but I am not going to be THAT person. The person, who, in a situation where everybody is stressed to the maximum, is sitting there chewing on carrot sticks, apples and nuts. I am also not going to bring smelly fish sandwiches or something equally noticeable to the nose in a packed room on a hot summer day. Everybody hates that person, and gives them stink-eye, as do I. Although, now we know where they got the idea that it was okay to be that person.
So. I chose to blatantly ignore all the suggestions that I knew would make me wildly unpopular, and instead took matters into my own dirty little hands, which means that I came home with sour liquorish, gummy-bats (the body is made of liquorish and the wings are made of winegums – PERFECTION), and chocolate. To ensure myself from getting a sugar-shock, I am also bringing a sandwich. I figure a sandwich will serve as a good foundation for all the delicious that will be coming.
I have two more written exams coming up, so if any of you have any suggestions about food items to bring, please don’t hold back. No matter what, it will be greatly appreciated. Just please don’t tell me to eat a carrot.
