I cant lie i've come to terms with the fact that I'll probs fail the mocks. I had some deep reflective thoughts in the shower lol. The silver lining here is that I've essentially caught up with the content in term of the materials I've made. The only struggle for me right now is committing them to memory. Still feeling really shaky and my throat feels so messed up from throwing up yesterday.

4:00 Am
Woke up but I felt terrible so I went back to bed for another 45 mins

7:30 AM
Hella ****ed my alarm didnt go off like wtf???
Had a shower

8:20 am
Ate my OMAD and took some time to get a good cry in. Also, chugged a tonne of hot drinks since my throat felt like shrapnel.

10:10
Starting anki

12:12
Taking a break until half past fml

Just had the best nap of my life, finished both exams and got the marks for most of the sections getting marks for 2 more tomorrow.
Paper 1 : 76/120 (63%)
Paper 2a : 17/20
b: ?/20
c: ?/20 <- not confident AT ALL on this section

I just wanna pass, we haven't been told what will be good enough yet since its based on curving everyone's scores. I made so many dumb mistakes but that's on me for cramming.
