Ziggy Floyd remains paranoid. Black Sabbath shaking floorboards; apartment walls blasted by song. Quartering half-life of “Ambien Moments.” Nothing working. Had to pace—sleepless with test anxiety, jittery, fighting wee-hour hangover nausea.
….Tap-tap-tap—pencil taps…. Quit your side conversations you’re supposed to be proctoring!
Unprepared for breakdown, the rest of his life, Ziggy recalls bombing the LSAT.
Hi Lynda. I used to get test anxiety in the worst way… not anymore though. It’s been interesting to hear about all the Ambien moments of sleepwalking and such that lots of people seem to be reporting these days.
Ahhhh! How many tests are there out there that this would fit? Love that ” wee-hour hangover nausea” that you chose to include. That was the worst of the pre-test sleepless jitters.
I wonder what this would have read like and what kind of comments you would receive had you ended it at “Ziggy recalls”. I honestly read the first part of this as “vampiric” and sucking the life out of night. Good one, Adam. I so enjoy your 55’s!
Hi Leslie. MCAT, GRE, etc…. there are many it seems.
Like how you interpret as vampiric. Stress and anxiety are definitely draining. Would be interesting if that last part wasn’t there. Definitely don’t miss taking tests like that.
