Exam hell – the struggle is real

Indeed, that time is upon us. The much dreaded, most feared part of a student’s journey. The very thought of exams gives us the heebie-jeebies. We form study groups, visit old dusty notes, pull enough all-nighters that we start to resemble those zombies in post-apocalyptic shows.

During this time caffeine is our mistress and food our best friend. Is it just me or the conventions of society just don’t apply during examination days? We guzzle down energy drinks by the gallons and binge on hearty comfort food like there’s no tomorrow. Our brains are in over-drive. Maybe that’s why we end up metabolising those burgers within minutes and are searching for restaurants online looking for the next feast. We end up ordering in from all kinds of place. Some hit the spot, and some just end up swingin-a-miss.

Yeah, we know how important food is during this time. It is our only friend that will stand beside us (more like sit inside our bellies) while we prepare relentlessly to slay that beast. It can be overwhelming, but a little comfort can go a long way. You’ll be amazed what a juicy burger with a side of fries for lunch can do for you. It can be the silver lining to your dark cloud of a day. Order in some ribs for dinner when you decide you’ve done enough revision for one day. The Smoke Haus’ huge portions of smoked ribs will put you in deep slumber and once again you’ll know the meaning of sleeping like a child. You’ll wake up rejuvenated and ready for battle. We have faith in you. Trust me, you’ve got this!
