Don’t start watching Game of Thrones

Cut off your writing hand in a lawn mowing accident. 

Don’t start playing Witcher 3.

Don’t scan WSOP.com for all the latest and greatest updates for the 2015 World Series of Poker. Not sure why the series had to start the week before the exam but it did.

Watch NHL/ NBA finals… not sure who chose the first weekend in June, obviously not a hockey nor basketball fan

I actually passed level 2 after getting only 3 hours of sleep. I just couldn’t sleep. Adrenaline carried me.

Failed this, but my studying has not been affected.

I went into EB games hoping to buy the Wii U gamecube adapter, but instead bought Witcher 3 for xbone.

Luckily I gave my buddy the power cord to my xbox three weeks ago to prevent temptation.

I have allocated one extra hour on Saturday morning for a nervous bowel explosion at home and when I get to the test center.

Take good rest until the exam now. No physical strain. 

I got terrible upper back pain. (perhaps due to fatigue). It got so bad today that I had to go to a doctor and he gave medication for muscle relaxation, but the medicine is drowsy. I will take only at night and avoid on Friday night. 

Don’t do anything that challenges you physically. Specially take care of your writing hand. :)

If your doc gave you a muscle relaxer be careful with those things. I once slept for 18 hours after I took one. It might as well be an elephant tranquilizer.

My dreams is to sleep the night before the exam. The idea of the dark room and silence enviorment makes me freak out and my mind never stop visiulizing a millions events at speed 10000 mile/hr. My heart beating and like to explode. Have no idea what to do. Pills will makes me stupid during the rest. Any clue ?

Good advice ChuckRox, thanks. I actually slept way too much today than required. I will suspend the medication until the exam is over…perhaps take pain killer with no drowsiness feature. 

Don’t do what I’ll be doing…sleeping in the same room as 7 week old twins the night before the exam.
