August Blues: Bugbear Exams

As a kid, were you happy or anxious about going back to school? Now that you’re older, how has your attitude toward the end of the summer evolved?


As a kid, I always looked forward to the holidays.

Start of school was always greeted with groans. But it was also exciting—fresh  textbooks and notebooks, brown covers and colourful labels.

I would devour my English and History texts much before school began. To me, they were merely more novel reading material.

Exams , however, have always been my bugbear. And they continue to be so. My worst nightmares always have an exam in them. Exams stress me out especially if I feel that I am not adequately prepared.

That has not changed and, I guess, it never will.
