Well, well, it has been a while, hasn't it? 

Staying away from blogger has been pretty frustrating and therefore, I am caving in before my exams have officially ended. But they are going to end - really really soon - in two days (two more papers left - History tomorrow and Math 2 the day after) and I am absolutely thrilled by the mere thought of that.

So, how has my life been from 14 September till today, the 9th of October (wow that's almost a month, I'm impressed)? Honestly, everything that has happened circled around academics, books, notes and exams. Actually, it sounds pretty bad but I kind of enjoyed it - studying makes me feel really smart because normally I'm really dumb. Knowing that I do have a bit of concentration when the occasion calls for it makes me feel a  tad better. This EYA period hasn't been as bad as I had imagined it to be, possibly because my subject combi of PhysicsChemLitHistory was on really good terms with the person scheduling our exams. I personally don't feel like it's the EYA period but rather just a series of minor tests and everything just feels pretty weird and surreal, maybe it's because this year I started hardcore mugging a little earlier than I normally do.

Then comes the next question. How have my exams been so far? Let's go through the motions, shall we?:

28 Sept: English & Chinese Paper 1 - The papers were exactly how language papers should feel like but I regretted writing the topic that everyone chose for my English exposition essay because it'd be much more difficult to stand out when everyone's writing the same topic on foreigners. 
4 October: Social Studies & Physics - I love SS so it was quite a joy to write and Physics was alright especially when I vomited all the equations I stuffed in my brain at the side of my paper. 
5 October: Math 1 & Literature - I absolutely hate Literautre to be scheduled after Math because I can't switch from left to right brain that fast based on experience but Math was pretty alright considering that it is my worst subject and that I didn't feel prepared for it. Literature circled around Singapore poems and I personally love that genre of poems. I fell in love with Poem B there and then so sitting for the exam was really fun. 
8 October: English & Chinese Paper 2 - English was a little more difficult than usual and Chinese has never been my forte - I had about 10 minutes left so I guess that's quite good considering quite a few people couldn't complete/ had to rush through. 
9 October: Chemistry - Second worst subject after Math and went into the exam room with my mind already set on not including Chemistry into my GPA but it was surprisingly okay - I have no idea if it's because of my incompetence and simplistic mind so I felt like the questions were manageable but apparently it was a killer paper so I was very confused. 

Overall, EYAs this year have been pretty decent as a whole, I didn't have any subjects that I felt like I was totally going to flunk in and do super badly, unlike during Mid Years where I knew I was going to screw up Math and Chemistry. Good vibes good vibes (':

History paper tomorrow - I should really go and study now, I need to do well in History! 

Can't wait to get back to blogging regularly after EYAs are over and my hopefully my posts will be much more interesting - I have so many things I plan to do post-EYA (': Press on, 13atch! 2 more days. 

"Let them eat cake."
