When I overthink questions in an exam. I do it every time and it annoys me so much.

The worst one was in a Physics exam. I've noticed University Physics Professors are NOT the best in writing exam questions with English that makes it clear what it is your meant to do. I'm doing this paper and during reading time I come across a question and as always try and mentally figure out ways of going about it and I kept hitting a brick wall so I think about ways to get around it and arrive at what I think is a plausible way. Ended up taking me 2+ pages with a LOT of hardcore Math to do the question. As it so turns out the question WAS worded weirdly but some of my friends realized how the wording was off and made a fundamental assumption that would have reduced my 2+ pages of working down to half a page.

Ever since then I always assume the worst case scenario before I truly try tackling something with that much effort..
Haha this seems to be the case with a lot of lecturers. I've had a fair few typos in exams and weirdly phrased questions that freaked me out too until I realised they were just very poorly worded! Uni exams definitely don't go through the same "quality control" process as VCE/HSC exams lol.

Packing. Literally for anything.

I'm packing to go to uni and it's taking ages. What's needed, whats not, why can't I just teleport my whole bedroom to university?! I have made lists, bought the things I need but it seems utterly endless.  :'(

Feeling tired even though it's only 8pm and you only woke up at 9am.

The fact that it is so hard to get a job with such picky employers looking for a mister perfect

Me, seeing a book title and cover reveal on twitter: Surely this book is just a normal mystery/crime book!
Goodreads: Lmao no, it's a historical fantasy.

One of my neighbours was super rude to me when I took forever to leave our apartment block's garage today (They were behind me in their car and my garage key was not working. They were screaming at me to hurry up even though I could not get my key to work) It really annoys me when old people are so rude to young people.
Which will hold greater rule over you? Your fear or your curiosity?

Last night, the building that I work in, was scheduled to have the power shutoff. We were assured it was only going to be part of the building, and that the power to our instrument room was not going to be shutoff.

Got to work today and they did in-fact cut the power off to the instruments. It takes about 24 hours to get them ready to work again (and its also not good just to cut the power off to them, as it can damage them). People had samples running overnight that are now ruined and I had the instrument I was using running really well (which is extremely rare).

When you decide to sleep for 9 hours instead of 5 hours but end up feeling more tired than usual when you wake up in the morning. Great.
