Yaya’s final exams will start tomorrow and she is currently on SWOTVAC ( Aussie equivalent of study hols)
She started a new job last week and went for on the job training most of the days. She attended a Halloween party at her friend’s house on Saturday and had a sleepover. I see her sitting down in her room and revise every now and then.
I don’t know if it was the way we study in India, or if it is because I am a student who believe in the very last second panic studying. Few days before my exams, I am usually so stressed and will be biting every bit of my nails and wouldn’t even eat anything for fear of wasting time. My child on the other hand baked a cake last night, filled her uni application forms etc. I am terrified every time I see Yaya not studying. I am tempted to tell her ‘don’t waste time, keep revising’
But then I tell myself, I haven’t told her to study until now and she did well and I am sure she knows what she is doing.
Honestly, her style of studying terrifies me.
