this revision malarkey is doing my nut in. i am sat in a study room at the hospital and there is a very strange man sitting opposite me. he’s eating an apple very loudly.

on the plus side, i found this quote in my pharmacology textbook: p. 588: “It [amphetamine use] has also been in fashion as a means of helping students to concentrate before and during examinations, but the improvement caused by reduction of fatigue can be offset by the mistakes of overconfidence.” Footnote: “Pay heed to the awful warning of the medical student who, it is said, having taken copious amounts of dextroamphetamine, left the examination hall in confident mood, having spent 3 hours writing his name over and over again.”
