Not to brag but test-taking has always come somewhat easy to me. In general I have a stellar memory. That's right, I said "Stellar". Just call me Elephant Amelie. So, until 3 weeks ago I have never taken a test that I thought I flunked. Literally. No exaggeration. It was really hard, some of my classmates didn't even get to finish. I finished only 2 minutes before time was called. I actually had a nightmare about the test... after I took it. This, my friends is hardcore. In addition to being good at tests, I generally don't worry about them too much. Because... well, I don't care. After you take it, there is no fixing it, but this test plagued me. I thought about it all the time, like my mind couldn't let go of my big ACADEMIC FAILURE. It was quite annoying. The big problem being that if I flunked the test, there was a big chance that I might not get a B- in the class which means that I would have to sign up for another semester. In other words Fail Test=$1300 problem. That's big-time retirement money peeps! I could have like sooooooooo many cake breaks for that money.

Well, I'm happy to say there is a happy ending to this story. Freakishly, I got a B on the test. I wish I could say the same for my classmates, many of whom I am sure are pulling out their hair after that SERIOUSLY difficult test. But it seems that I dodged the bullet this time. To celebrate, I bought myself flowers, called Justina, and wrote this blog. And I feel good. Can't hold me down!
