And so it starts. The final countdown to what will hopefully be the end of my life as an undergraduate.

My first exam is tomorrow but my mind has already skipped to the end of this academic year. Even though I have a rough few days ahead of me I just need it to feel like it’s over. I am not as stressed as I was a few weeks ago. Actually, I’m lying, I am very stressed and very worried but somehow I’m not letting it get to me. The “come what may” approach.

In light of recent events, (my mother being admitted to hospital and having surgery to remove a brain tumour) I have managed to put everything in perspective. It’s not the healthiest of perspectives but it’s the only thing I can do to keep myself sane through this last stage of my course. If things don’t go well I’ll still survive. I’m not saying I am prepared for things to go wrong but if they do I’m sure I’ll be able to face it.

I know I have not updated you Internets on my mum’s health the last few days so I’ll do it right now. My mother was allowed to leave the hospital on Friday last week after they removed her stitches. She is now at home recovering. Today she saw the doctor as scheduled so they could check and make sure everything is healing up well. Everything is okay and she no longer has any headaches or any of the other symptoms she was having before.

That is all I have to say right now. Wish me luck for tomorrow and I’ll update on how it went after the exam is over and possibly after I’ve had some sleep.

  1. I HATE exams, I honestly have never really studied for one though and always ended up doing good. I have finals coming up soon and I just could care less, I am so ready to be done too! Good luck!!

  2. Good luck for tomorrow!

    I spent the last month of my Uni life hovering between having a total break down and complete and utter apathy, a very odd feeling for me, but the final moment when you push the door open out of the exam hall is just so phenomenal that you suddenly forget just how much hell it has been (plus the alcohol helps make forgetting that much quicker lol). I think the logical approach is a good one so I bet you’ll do great!

    I hope your mum is kicking ass recovery wise 🙂

  3. I’m a bit late in joining the crowd here, but I wanted to say “Good Luck” on all of your exams. BTW, don’t forget to take the names of all those asses you kicked!

    p.s. I’m very happy to hear that your mom was released last week and I wish her a very speedy recovery!

  4. Meesh :: Thank you babe. You’re not late. I have a few more exams before I’m done. I won’t take any names. I’ll just walk away as gracefully as an over-caffeinated guy who is constantly clumsy can. Thank you about your wishes for my mum. Today she tried cooking again and tomorrow should be her last day taking meds.
