Remember how the coffee made us shake on those long drives?
'Organic chemistry may be hard, but it is quite fulfilling once you've realised that you've learnt a lot...If you go in feeling that you'll fail, then you will. So make sure you go in feeling positive.' (Read, 2007)
Yes. Now, if only I can conjure up optimism out of thin air and inject some self confidence through an IV drip.
Okay, so Im putting as much faith as I can in tutorials and the fact that I have 1 day left to revise and do the past years. Im SO screwed.
Let's not even START on Genetics! Hahaha.
Once exams are over, I am going to go off coffee for a week. I've been guzzling it down every morning for the past month and it's not good.
You see, caffeine is a mutagen and it can cause chromosomal damage. It also amplifies mutagenesis by blocking DNA repairs. Besides that, the adrenaline and high concentration levels will subside leading to fatigue. Other side effects include gastric ulcers, diarrhoea followed by constipation.
Yes, I know this all takes place if I drink more than 3 mugs a day. Still, I don't need it to add on to the plaque forming on my arteries considering the amount of fast food I'm consuming these days. Gosh.
Where was I? Owh yes, my after exams resolution numero uno:
STAY AWAY FROM COFFEE FOR A WEEK.
And the week after that, I'm staying away from CHEESE. Muahahaha. Trust me, that's waaaaay harder than staying away from coffee. Hehe.
