All-Nighter Nightmares: 5 Classic Stages In Exam Cramming For Students In Malta πŸ˜… πŸ˜‚




It's that time of year again πŸ˜’


If you haven't had the pleasure of having an all-nighter yet, trust me your time will come. As for all the veterans out there, I hope this makes you laugh more than it makes you cry πŸ˜…



9 PM - The Calm 😌



Okay so my exam starts at 9 am, that means I have a solid 12 hours of studying before I have to log in to my exam portal. Plenty of time right? Laptop is fully charged, all my notes are neatly stacked & categorised by topic - this night is gonna be a breeze.





11 PM - The (False) Confidence 😎



Damnnn since when am I so good at this? 2 hours in and I've covered at least 6 different topics - including some past paper questions! I feel sharp, I feel determined, everything is going according to plan.


I'm gonna ace this exam.





1 AM - The Crime Scene πŸ™ƒ



Okay so, my room has gotten significantly messier at this point. The past 2 hours have been a blur of emotions. The syllabus I thought I had fully mapped out magically decided to get 3 chapters longer - also my cat can't seem to accept the fact that my keyboard is NOT her bed.


(I also secretly watched a couple of Rick & Morty episodes, and by episodes I mean seasons...shhh I have everything under control I swear)





4 AM - The Point Of No Return πŸ’€



4 empty coffee cups, 3 squashed Red Bull cans, 2 red eyes and 1 absolutely exhausted student. This is horrible, I hate everything about this.


Not only have I consumed enough caffeine to kill an adult rhino, but I also fell down the YouTube wormhole for a solid 2 hours and ended up watching a step-by-step tutorial on how to teach dolphins to whistle - definitely useful information for my life.





8 AM - The Bags Under My Eyes Are Gucci πŸ₯±



Sike, I definitely don't have any Gucci. What I do have though is a crippling sense of impending doom & suffering.


On the bright side though, I can spend the last hour of my exam napping since I won't know half the answers! #silverlinings right? πŸ™„





Good Luck for your exams πŸ₯° πŸ€
