this is a note i wrote to my dearest friend EPS. she was having a moment and needed some motivation. thinking about it, i did too!

1. these exams represent 0.001% of your lifetime but could determine what you do for the rest of it.

2. boys prefer smart girls. FACT.

3. we all know you can do it.

4. failing to prepare is preparing to fail.

5. it’ll be over in just one month ie 31 days ie 744 hours.

6. it gives you an excuse to buy pretty stationary.

7. no paine, no gain (thanks isaac).

8. exam time means you can eat chocolate. lots of it!

9. everything happens for a reason.

10. think of the celebratory rocky road/pint/night out.
