update: the test was not as bad as i thought it would be, but it still didn't go as smoothly as usual. i'm spoiled, i guess, and i forgot how tiring high school was exactly because of this reason: you had to memorize everything, or you'd fail. thinking about concepts? no need. trying to develop ideas of your own? you don't have to. just mindlessly recite what you read and you get a 10.
slightly unrelated, when is ello going to let us reply to replies? @thealogie & @anarmydoctor i read your replies and thea: you were right. rosalia: you're also always right, and my thoughts exactly. thank you both <3
