Today was my first exam and it was a shitshow. Now I’m no stranger to walking out of an exam and feeling like I failed but that was in undergrad when I never went to class or did a reading and basically expected to fail.

This course is actually the one I was most comfortable with for this exam term. I knew the info so well that people actually sought me out to answer their questions and I explained the course to multiple people. So walking out of this exam and feeling like I failed was crushing. I basically felt like if I was going to do badly like I did in undergrad anyways than why stress about studying. Obviously I know I need to study so I compromised (probably to my detriment) and took the evening off.

I also treated myself to a fancy milkshake and a meal. The meal ended up being bad since London isnt the best food city (especially coming from Toronto and Montreal) and it was expensive and just not great. However, my Squish order arrived today so things are looking up!

So now I have squish, drag race all stars, and this tea. Things are looking up.

Don’t stress about it. If you were as prepared for it, it’s very possible that it was a test designed to “fail” people and give them a shake up. Wouldn’t be the first time profs do it, won’t be the last. Either way, it’s over and you can focus on your other exams. You got this!

The day before the exam my prof told us that when he was going through old exams he realized they were asked to do a lot less with simpler facts and they were given more time. He said by the time he realized that, it was too late to change the exam and we’d all be in the same boat. It’s just frustrating because I keep thinking of things I know I wrote that was wrong or didn’t write so its incoherent.

It’s also possible that your answers were not as out there as you now imagine. And also possible that your prof will liberally apply generosity in marking, is. You cannot fail a whole class. Also, hugs.

My cupboard has grown exponentially since joining this site and I have a lot to share. Feel free to snoop through my cupboard and message me if anything interests you – I am always happy to swap!

For me, flavored teas are definitely my sweet spot. I will most often reach for black teas and rooibos or honeybush blends but I do keep some flavored whites and greens around for when the mood strikes. I have a few herbals/tisanes but most of the time I find myself disappointed by them as they often smell deliciously sweet and then end up tasting tart/sour. I have a little bit of an aversion to pu’erh and oolong teas. I am also wary of florals, earl greys, and chai teas. I do not like overpowering citrus flavors nor do I usually like hibiscus, licorice or chamomile. I love dessert teas – caramel, vanilla, toffee, cookie, cream, and other sweet flavors make me smile. Fruits like strawberry, peach, mango, and pineapples will often catch my attention as well.

I have also realized that although I really enjoy adding frothed milk to some of my teas, if I do not like the tea with zero additives (just in plain water without milk or sugar), I probably won’t drink it. The one exception is flavored matchas which I will happily drink in cold milk if I do not like it mixed with hot water. My theory is if the tea can’t stand on its own then it is not for me and I will more than likely try to swap it out for something else.

Tea Ratings Guide (as of December 10, 2017)
90-100 Teas I NEED on hand at all times
80-89 Teas I want to keep around for a cup every now and then
70-79 Teas I am glad I have around and can experiment with but probably don’t need more than what’s in my cupboard
60-69 Teas I would not turn down a cup of from a friend but that would probably be enough
50-59 Teas I can see why someone would enjoy but are not for me
Under 50 Teas I really did not like and most likely got dumped
