Can't sleep at all the night before final exam

Was exhausted the whole day and was falling asleep by evening, recovering from fever, exam tomorrow morning.

Went to the gym and was preparing to relax and sleep early, but then my crush (who's taking the same exam tomorrow morning) out of nowhere asked me out, we chatted/ flirted for an hour and now I haven't slept all night. It's 5am now and I haven't had a moment of sleep although I've tried hard. Exam in 5 hrs.
I went through a similar situation in the 2nd year at uni before a big project presentation (majority of marks for the module and no scripts allowed). I was on the tail end of flu and had no sleep the night before. I was exhausted and my anxiety was through the roof thinking how am I going to be able to do this presentation and remember everything.

But the body is an amazing thing. Even when you are exhausted and worn out, your body and mind is able to do more than you believe. Just take a deep breath and do the best you can do.

Don't get bogged down with what you think you cant do.

(p.s. I got a first for my project ^... you've got this!!! ๐Ÿ˜„)

Good luck!! ๐Ÿ™Œ
