and yet like a dream.
in the last 3hrs i just went through perhaps the luckiest moments of brilliance i could have conjured. just. fucking. incredible.
i woke at 930 this morning thinking my m451 paper was an afternoon paper. somehow i had this hunch that i ought to double check my exams schedule and see what time the paper was and where it was. call it instinct maybe, but yeah, so i went to check.
M451:BUILDING SERVICES ENGINEERING
LOCATION: EXAM HALL 10
SEAT NO: 123
eeks. morning paper. fuck.
hmm, surprisingly i seemed really cool about it at first, maybe the repercussions of missing the paper didn't dawn on me, then suddenly. aaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!! morning paper! haha.
i was abit lost, quickly flipped through the notes i had prepared to memorize last night, tore into my jeans, grabbed pencil-case and wallet wore a cap and rushed out. no waterbottle, never lock door, wore shoes without socks, never wash up, hair the height of a full-blown afro, out to take paper just like that. i think i must have stunk up the whole exam hall with my manly musk.
when i reached it was 9.45am on the exam hall clock. 15min late. so dead. checked if i brought everything. matric card. checked. pencil-case. checked. my lucky ass. checked.
hmm. the paper turned out to be okie. not too hard, though not too easy either. hopefully the methods that i practiced were correct (i didn't have any model answers so i practiced thinking i was always correct!)
so lucky. in fact i even finished the paper early. even had time to discuss with prof wong (who invigilated beside me and kept giving me sneaky smiles) if i may hand in his copy of my fyp report next week instead, and in black and white (he was damn cool about it!) somehow i didn't dare to leave until someone else did, perpetually checking if i missed out on any questions. so when the first person stood up to leave i immediately followed suit. time i left the exam hall? 1135am.
not bad at all for a lucky sod like me. phew!
i sure wouldn't trade even a big win at singapore pools for that lucky moment when i decided to check my exam schedule man! wah lao.
next paper is engineers and society on tuesday. its DEFINITELY an afternoon paper.
