Sometimes, I simply just do it

I have this English subject that’s been ‘haunting’ me for years now. I took this subject a while ago when I was studying somewhere else. However, it didn’t go so well. Okay... I FAILED.

Exam fears are my worst fears

This was mostly in school and workplaces.

But beyond all the excitement of celebrating the finished assignments, will the students also be mourning the loss of their student identity? Reality lies ahead and the CBS days may be harder to transfer out of than one might think.
