me not because I'm single, but because I had to study for three tests I had to take today. Except I didn't study so I think I did real bad on them 8<
I don't really study for tests, or exams, myself.
If yeu study something, yeu forget most of it very shortly; most of it won't last two weeks. It's short term blind memorization and means nothing. Understand things as yeu go along through a course in the first place and yeu'll do fine.
That way, when yeu get yeur marks back, yeu know that's exactly how much yeu know, not an artificially inflated value that, when yeu go to put it to the test, yeu realize yeu don't know anything.
Biggest thing about tests and exams though, isn't even that. They have an inherent fear factor to them; they invoke the flight or fight response; yeu can't run out the door, nor hide, and yeu can't 'fight' it. The adrenaline goes, yeur body treats it like yeu're being stalked by a predator... yeur brain shuts down conscious thought, and tries to just 'react', except this's the worst possible thing to do when trying to do a test...
Try to relax, and don't make a big deal over it. If yeu stress out, yeur mind will go blank, yeu'll forget everything yeu know. If yeu're calm, and just think it through, it'll be there when yeu need it.
Exams aren't hard usually; they just have that really big % of yeur mark riding on them, to the point that they cause fear. Once yeu no longer fear them, yeur marks will improve.
It doesn't matter if they're right. If they can't proove they're right, then they're wrong. No matter how right they may be.
I lost my virigininininity on V-day, so it has real meaning to me. But there's room for V-day haters and participators.

Hot night on the 13th?!
I don't remember the date of when I lost mine. It just wasn't a very big deal to me.

This year I was traveling back home on V-Day from vacation at the folks' house with one of my friends. We got stuck in Houston for the night 'cause the stupid train to get from E to B was broken. A 1 hr layover with Customs, checked bags, going thru security again...*AND* the broken train made us miss the flight. If the train had been working we prolly would have made it fine. Instead we had to pay for our own hotel room 'cause it wasn't the airline's fault. At least we got a discounted rate. *shrug*
Only reason I remembered it was actually Valentine's Day was 'cause I called my friend that lives in Houston and she was busy spending the day with her boyfriend and couldn't come visit me or anything.
I've been a bitter single Valentiner in my time on Earth. Not really bitter enough to say a whole lot, but on the inside. It used to be weird when kids in high/middle school would get roses and crap and I either 1) wouldn't get anything or 2) would get something sent from my mom or sister. Lamest Valentine ever is one from a relative that feels sorry for you. *sigh*
