Now I can take a little breather from my daily tight schedule. It's Sunday for a week!
I had a midterm test yesterday. As usual, I was half struggling with piles of notes the day before. Doing a lot of thinking to find a relevance for every topics. Thus, end up by memorising all the definition and formula. I thought I was ready for the test and I slept the night.
The very next morning, I checked my phone, I've got 3 new messages. From 3 different people with the same content. They've got a leak for the morning test. Great! This will be easy. And so I tried to memorise all the designated answers. After I finished my memorise everything, there is 1 hour or so before the test begin. So I thought to take a little break.
Oh, my brother is watching cartoon. And so, I joined him.
Two small characters holding hands and run across a field happily.
"I love you. Do you love me?"
What? Kids these days already exposed to love stories even before they hit their puberty. When I was little, I watch almost every cartoon that were broadcast on our local television and I never experienced with any love story in any of the cartoon. I guess. Neither did I understand the English back then. So I rest my case.
I asked my brother if he ever understand what have been said in these cartoon and he said yes. Okay, I am a late bloomer I guess. And I continue to watch the cartoon with him. I might learn about kids new perspective these days. And a thing or two about love I guess. Haha.
And so to my great dismay, it was actually about a kid who question about 'when did you know that you're in love'. So not your average adult romance novelity. It is a cartoon for godsake! What was I thinking?
I looked at the clock.
15 MINUTES MORE!
I speed up to the bathroom and took a very manly bath while I circulating the remaining time to reach the exam hall. I rushed everything. Wore all my gears and jumped straight to car. I wish I had installed a turbo engine by now but no. Stop dreaming and and push the paddle already.
Finally I reached the Exam Hall. The test already started about 15 minutes. I scanned the room to find an empty seat. I was a little bit frustrated because I saw all my mates already seat in a renegades manner. Sort by intelligence. I've missed our usual cunning plan.
And so I gave them a signal by clearing my throat. Which means, 'Any seat for me?'. Unfortunately my lecturer did answer my prayers by asking me to seat on an empty seat infront.
Que sera sera.
I sat properly and take out all my accessories. My lecturer came to me and did a correction on the question paper. I thanked her. As I'm about to finished my first question, my lecturer made an announcement.
"Masa tinggal lagi 15 minit."
My third time 'unfortune 15 minutes' for the day. I was stunned. I tried to calmed down but all saved formula in my brain were scattered all over. A frightful doubt suddenly raised in me. I am confused between inverting and non-inverting gain formula.
"Tak lah, saya bergurau saja. Masa ada 40 minit lagi."
Thank god she's joking. And so I rearranged all the formula and fully answered the remaining two questions. After I've done checking all my answers, there is 10 minutes more. So I devilishly decided to distract all the rushing people around me. An ordinary phsychotic distraction to be precise. Stomp the shoes, tap the pen, fake cough, clear throat, flip the papers to front page and slouch confidently. And so the test finally ends at 11.20 am. Everyone leaves the room.
