    Honestly, I'm one of those Type-A, annoyingly high strung people, that worrying and being in a perpetual state of anxiety is natural for me.
    No joke. I started worrying about one of my exams this week because I WASN'T worried about the exam. Why wasn't I worried? How come I'm not freaking out? <---- That's what put me in freak out mode.

    My "escape" is thinking about the future, and how good I will feel in x amount of weeks after exams, and then I think, I can officially start university because of my efforts.

    tl;dr Thinking about a succesful future is my escape

    Dat feel
    So far I have been so chilled out about all my exams before them, most of them reasonably so, and the ones that were a bit worse it was more due to exam technique than lack of knowledge/prep. But I keep thinking that I shouldn't be so relaxed lol (admittedly I'm extremely neurotic post-exam)

    lmfao. neuroses FTW!!! Let's hope we'll be okay, and our blase attitudes are coming from a place of strong knowledge. Can't wait for all this to be over.
