There are a few things I miss about college. I miss hanging out with my friends, the abundance of free time that I had to do pretty much anything I wanted, having virtually no rent to cover and having a mess of emotions I really couldn't understand or process in a healthy way, as weird as that sounds.
I can tell you though that I don't miss finals week. Not because I was a bad student or anything - but because I hated writing in those blue books and my hands would cramp up and get covered with ink when I was trying to cram an entire semester's worth of knowledge into a few paragraphs. Man do I hate finals.
And Twitter user Ann Mark's finals experience is a good reminder of just how much I loathed those end of semester tests. Just watch her relay the horror of what she endured.
At least she's keeping a positive attitude about the entire debacle.
And she further chronicled her drama by following through with all of the kind souls at the University of Texas at Austin who helped her on her finals excursion. She even tried to get her hands on camera footage of her unfortunate "window incident."
As well as people who helped her do less than horrible on her tests.
Fellow people on campus who assisted her location-deficient-self (I'd personally be dead without Google Maps).
Currently filling out a Craigslist missed connection to thank all the strangers who helped me along the way especially physics exam girl and google maps girl— Ann Mark (@annmarkk) December 16, 2017
Like she really, really owed them and wanted to let them know just how appreciated they were.
Y’all help me find physics exam Girl and google maps Girl I would like to take them out to lunch— Ann Mark (@annmarkk) December 16, 2017
And it turns out that some who witnessed her struggles reached out to her. Or it could just be a very well-timed pick-up line.
Sharing the story online must've been super comforting for Ann, because as it turns out, she's not alone in her harrowing final exam experience.
girl I'm a junior at UT & I had a less dramatic version of this happen to me this morning it doesn't get much easier so good luck 2 u, always good to keep some blue books on hand— Katie Day (@KatieDayum) December 16, 2017
People began tweeting words of encouragement at her, as well.
😂🤘 So many UT memories here! Don’t worry every student messes up Hogg/Hogg at least once. Not as many run into windows though— Joe Hanson (@DrJoeHanson) December 16, 2017
And she ended up making new friends.
I have the biggest girl crush on you when are we gonna hang out— Ann Mark (@annmarkk) December 15, 2017
Others are calling her journey a prime example of independent American film.
fyi this was cinematic gold & upcoming RTF majors should be inspired & write about how Ann Mark's documentary of her first college exam is a great example. of an independent film. in america.— 👼🏽tosin the tree topper🎄 (@exocytosin) December 16, 2017
And honestly, it's difficult to argue that it isn't. There are few things more relatable than being thrust into adulthood and having no idea what you're doing during what is arguably the most stressful time of a college kid's life. Especially according to this person.
Just so you know you'll have nightmares about this for the next 80 years cause that's how that shit works... You're gonna have baby grandkids and will still wake up drenched in sweat dreaming about trying to get to exams on time...— Mike Obie (@MikeObieTweet) December 16, 2017
And here I am thinking we're just dealing with a lighthearted comedy of errors.
