a) How irritable/short tempered are you feeling? I'm not, really.
b) How many "nasty" posts have you made in the past 2 weeks (be honest now)? I don't think too many, depends on who you ask though.
c) How many days to your next exam? 7
d) How well is your studying going (generally)? hard to say, I've been studying hard and for a long time but I feel like I haven't done enough and time's running out.

3 months to the next exam - that's just not fair!! I have 17 days. Which is better than Tracey's 7 to be fair.

I own my business. My boss won't give me any time off work just for studying. I'm thinking of resigning. :-(

a) How irritable/short tempered are you feeling?
Very, just ask my poor hubby!

b) How many "nasty" posts have you made in the past 2 weeks (be honest now)?
1, OK, maybe one of the others was also a bit off colour. So make it 2.

c) How many days to your next exam?
4 days. And I've put in a week of annual leave, we're going to Skukuza for my sister's wedding. I'm actually writing my exam in Skukuza while I'm 'on holiday'!

d) How well is your studying going (generally)?
One minute I'm blindly panic and feel like I might throw up. A bit later I might be feeling almost in control.

Once I've finished a paper, I always think 'cool'! That wasn't so bad. What's coming up next! smile

a) How irritable/short tempered are you feeling?
Extremely pissed. especially at lazy people.(i would like to add that procrastination is not associated with laziness.
b) How many "nasty" posts have you made in the past 2 weeks (be honest now)?

c) How many days to your next exam?
i think you mean hours....
d) How well is your studying going (generally)?
I doubt that now is the right time for me to be stroking my ego

I don't know about short-tempered but I am getting a bit ratty.
I'm stressed about my COS112 exam tomorrow and I brought work home so I'm under a bit of pressure.

I guess I'm also a bit volatile atm. Its not just exams, I've been way too busy at work these days and besides I've been attending a lot of interviews which require a lot of technical preparations and the ones I've been to so far are way more challenging than the UNISA exams.
