I dreamed a dream…
There was a time exams were kind
When answers were clear
And MCQ’s inviting
There was a time when examiners were blind
And life was a song
And grades were exciting
There was a time (KS2)
Then it all went wrong
I dreamed a dream in time gone by
When free time was high
And work not my living
I thought my social life would never die
I thought examiners were forgiving
Then I was young and doing SAT’s
And exams didn’t really matter
There was no revision of types of fats
Nothing that left your brain in tatters
But the caffeine comes at night
With its buzzing, twitching thunder
As it tears your sleep apart
As they turn your dream to ash
I had a summer holiday that was free
I filled its days with work and play
I took the freedom in my stride
But now it’s gone, and winter came
And still I dream a first will come to me
That my life won’t be revision
But there are dreams that cannot be
And this degree was my decision!
I had a dream my exams would be
Much easier than the ones I’ve taken
So different now from what they seemed
Now exams have killed the dream I dreamed
So I’ve had exams.
And I watched Les Mis.
And that’s what happened.
The exams actually weren’t that bad and I definitely don’t regret my degree but the idea came to me and I thought I’d go with it! Only one left to do, it should be ok. This made a good break for me anyway. Then the best part is that after tomorrow I have 10 FREE DAYS!! I have A LOT of tv to catch up on and I haven’t read my Christmas books and have been pining to do so – so I can’t wait! Les Mis was amazing by the way, not as good as the stage show but then it never could be, so definitely I recommend.
Here’s the actual version if you don’t know it:
Hope everyone’s exams are going well! Expect a fuller blog from me once it’s all over!
