Why Being A Bookworm In Exam Season Sucks



Being a student during exam time is pretty terrible. But also being a bookworm? It’s like the end of the world.

Here’s why:

1. You have to revise, like, all the time.

So those hours you used to spend reading a book, or writing blog posts? Yeah, they’re filled up with textbooks and past papers now.

2. Surprise mock exams always leave you feeling a little bit like this:

Surprise exams are one of the many banes of my existence. I can just about get a decent grade (and really focus on the word decent here), but they freak me out. I’m left feeling like I have the same brain capacity as a peanut.

3. What is a social life, again?

Hanging out with your friends outside of college? Forget it. The textbook is calling my name… Oh, you say what about social media? Haha, no.

It’s too tempting to check what’s happening in the world (or rather, where that person on Facebook had lunch) while revising: I’ve either got to have it all the time, or not at all. Bye internet life!

4. I miss being less stressed

My own personal mantra right now. I’m stressed 99.9% of the time normally, and add exams on top of that? Ugh. I’ll be honest, exams don’t scare me unless I talk about them (or if I imagine myself sitting in an exam hall. Or sitting a mock exam. Or…), but I do have a rather spectacular freak-out the night before.

But the thing that really gets me?

5. When one of your favourite authors is releasing a new book hours before you have to sit an exam so you can’t stay up all night reading it like you’d planned.

And that’s it for this post! If you’re sitting an exam soon, do you relate to any of these?

As a quick note: I’m sorry if I’m a bit absent from the blog this month, but I really need to start revising – my first exam is only a matter of weeks away. (But it’s likely I’ll still be pretty active as I’m a terrible student.)
