Aside from not having prepared for the examination, there are many things that can happen during the exam season. These stories can fill the pages of a short story, which amuses you. But it would happen long after you left the university.
Let's not beat around the bush. Here are five scenarios that you rather not remember:
You experienced a series of unfortunate events. Maybe you had too many negative thoughts, which you yearned for it. You didn't manage your time well, and you could've studied during the weekend. (You meandered the Internet for hours.) And it happened. Procrastination led you to lack of sleep. This could be the reason behind your lack of focus, as you entered the wrong (school) building. As you walked past the entrance door, you noticed a crack in the ceiling. You were several feet away from that spot when it gave way. You were shocked, and then grateful that the debris didn't hit you. It dawned on you that you were a lucky fellow until you noticed unfamiliar faces. (What were you doing there?) You were frantic. Punctuality was the norm, but you hoped otherwise. The professor's face hardly registered any expression. You wanted to tell him that you figured out the next misadventure of the Baudelaire orphans, but he wouldn't pay attention to your excuses.
You pulled an all-nighter. You smiled when you recalled the happenings prior to the examination, but you wouldn't recommend it to a freshman. You only had a couple of hours of sleep, as it took you long to finish your assignment on your other module. You forgot to change into your night wear. You only had an hour, and the (school) building was several blocks away. You considered not taking a shower, even thought of brushing your teeth later. But you did't want to be the center of attention. You managed to do it quickly, and made it on time.
You couldn't tell day from night. Your housemate thought you lost your grip, but you insisted that you lost track of the time. And you weren't irresponsible. You blamed it on the science fiction novels you read, but he noticed the chips on the floor. And then empty cans of soda. You were on a binge, and you didn't have an excuse for it.
You were emotionally upset. You were the happiest student until a petty fight. There was a breakup (or so you thought). And you were about to lose your mind. If not for your housemate (who noticed your puffy eyes), then you wouldn't snap out of it. You recited some lines from a John Waite song, which he didn't have a clue. He wasn't a fan of the 80s.
You wished someone gave you an advice on caffeine intake. Starbucks reminding you not to have many cups of coffee? This would be a surprise.
It's your turn to share your embarrassing moments. Don't be shy. The more, the merrier.
