    Definitely the best thing about vodka is the fact that it's clear, and so looks like vodka! Never yet have I been questioned about my water looking drink, so I guess that's cool xD

    I took a thermal cup of ginger tea into my exam on Friday. A plain cup rather than my other patterned ones. Invigilators didn't bat an eye.

    You're probably right. I'm starting to wonder if something is up with my attentive capacity, I get distracted way too easily. Like, intellectually I'm capable, but it's whether I can concentrate and focus, you know?

    Sorry to change the subject but does anyone know the size limit for bottles in exams or if there even is one? I always thought it was 500ml only but I hope it's more than this now!

    I'd imagine it'd be fine. Maybe take a 750ml and a 500ml, and ask before the exam if the 750ml would be alright?
