University Nap Dilemma
  1. No nap → read a page of textbook → too tired to study → procrastinate → sleep
  2. Nap → wake up too fatigued to study → procrastinate → go to bed but can’t fall asleep → read a page of textbook → fall asleep

The 20 stages of exams

Exams. We’ve all been there. *sigh*

Realising you don’t have much time left to study, you panic

You consult your friends about your exams

You study intensely for five minutes

image source

Waiting for your results

image source

I passed!
