Storm Front

Posted on July 31st, 2006

I have but an hour until my first exam. While I can’t say that I’ve studied a lot for this exam, I can say that I am reasonably confident in my understanding of the material. Even still, I am getting nervous (as I do for all exams, regardless of my level of preparedness).

The first exam of the period is particularly nerve-wracking; it pretty much sets the tone for the rest of the exams. If I kill it, I increase my confidence and tend to do better on the remaining ones. And, of course, the opposite is true.

So, as I deal with the butterflies fluttering around in my stomach, I have elected to listen to a song that should get my mind ready. Yep, you guessed it — The Final Countdown by Europe. Now, I know the lyrics have very little to do with anything, but the song itself gets me in the zone; When I hear it, I know there’s going to be a performance! (See Arrested Development for details.)

Does anyone else have pre-exam rituals? I hear listening to Eye Of The Tiger is pretty good…

    I don’t have any specific songs that I listen to before or after an exam. However, the song “One Night in Bangkok” was played heavily on Pentatraz during S05 exam period.
