CXC’s Oh CXC’s…

I’m here thinking how cruel humans beings are to each other.  Men concoct these exams with the sole purpose of laughing at our continued mental instability  and apprehensiveness (I can hear them laughing now).
Teens spend there summer days pretending to be calm, cool and collected; but inside there waiting for the prolonged agonizing wait to be over. It’s a nerve racking experience and I can surely attest to that – as much as I’d like to deny it.
Prior to me doing my CXC’s I always heard those “5th Formers”  raving and ranting about how long the wait is and that they cannot wait for such an experience to be over, I laughed and said to my self “What’s the big deal?  – it can’t be that big an issue and merely shrugged it off’. Oh! How wrong, oh how very wrong I was.

I felt this way up to the last minute, but now the prolonged wait is winding down and deep down I wish there was a rewind button…a rewind button to bring back those early euphoric summer days where all we as teens worried about was what we were going to wear to that party down the road, how we’re going to muster the funds for “RTI” and “ATI” and the inane discussions of who’s dating who – just to stray our minds away from the  catastrophic inevitable CSEC results , if only for a short while, but now we’re only a matter of days away from those results.

A lot of teens are keeping there “cool” and are optimistic  about there exemplarily results while others have undesirable thoughts playing itself out in there heads , on which side of the table do you fall? I surely know where I do, but in the end only time will tell…time tells it all – after all, the end justifies the means.
