Anyone starting to get anxious?

Postby jarofsoup » Tue Sep 21, 2010 12:49 pm

I have taken the test a few times, and I am starting to get a little nervous.

I am at work, and there are colds going around. I need to either get sick right now, or not at all.

Any one else having weird worries?

I think I could take the test with a cold, and do fine. Its not the flu or anything, but still would like a clean shot at it.

Cancer patients sometimes literally shoot up vitamin C. Yeah a bubble would be nice. Some emerganC poweder. I am in a cubicle, so it is sort of a bubble. Maybe a gas mask.

I am going off the assumption that someone being sick now has very little affect on me being sick three weeks from now.

I already have a cough/allergies or something so hopefully in 2+ weeks it will be better... probably going to get some vitamin C today.

We start in two days and I'm also anxious about all the time my classes are going to take out of my LSAT prep.

I stopped drinking the coffee at work because I thought about all the sick people refilling their cups and touching the pot to their cups... Weird worry?

I have been opening the doors with my sleeve, and avioding people caughing...yeah neurotic.

Its hard because a lot people have seasonal allergies, so everyone is siniffling or caughing for some reason.

I solved the "don't get sick stress" by getting sick a few days ago. It'll be gone by exam time, I'm thinking, so no worries there.

It actually helped, I think, because I took a PT while sick + on cold meds, and I got a decent score - under my average, but still decent. Makes me hope I can do it even under adverse real test conditions :).

Also, PURELL!

I have fall allergies. If they kick up on the day of the test I am going to be one miserable, miserable person. My worries have been centered on that and on oversleeping and not having time to prepare for the test. Nothing too strange though.

Allegra makes me not have allergies at all.

Love the Serena avatar.

And oh my god, yes, I just woke up from a dream where I was taking the LSAT, and people kept TALKING TO ME while doing it!! Haha. Like, I was in the middle of the test, and my grandmother was like "why aren't you doing better? What are you doing? Why don't you know the answer to that question?" and my mom was yelling at me for not being better prepared and I kept going SHUT UP SHUT UP SHUT UP and trying to answer questions.

And then I realized that for some reason I was given the questions out of order so all my bubble sheet answers were wrong and I hadn't answered half the questions yet and time was running out and no one would stop talking to me :(. I think I ended up deciding I would cancel, haha.

Other than having dreams about logic games, my only LSAT dream has been where I forgot to sharpen my pencils. I was trying to borrow pencils from all the other students, but no one would give me one.

Bahahaha. At least I can mask my neurotic behavior like, "Oh I'm just drinking green tea now. Out of these perfectly sterile, ahem awesome, styrofoam cups." You're just looking totally crazy with your sleeve trick... Which I'm totally doing now too, btw. =)

HaHa. No. I wasn't even anxious when I took it June, and I definitely won't be anxious this time. If anything, hyping this necessary but silly 4 hour affair up like an air balloon can only result in minus 5 points off an otherwise perfectly awesome score.

Getting nervous...I'd been scoring where I want to for the past 4 practice tests. Today, I messed up on LGs and then ran out of time on RC so that I only got to 21/27 questions. Hopefully an anomaly, but if this happens during the actual test, I will feel so defeated...

Yes, I scored 172 4 years ago, but now I have to retake for several law schools that want tests "within the last 3 years" and, so far, my highest PT has been 173 (4 sections, timed, PT 53).

LG -3
LR -2
LR -1
RC -2

Not much room for error on the real thing.

I'm not even that old. 8)

How do you add avatar's on this thingie btw?
