I have no idea how I am expected to pass the Japanese exam which I will be sitting next Sunday. I tried to complete a past paper tonight but I haven’t been taught around 50% of the words that appeared on this. I feel really fed-up as I have spent hours studying the verb and vocabulary lists that I have been given but these don’t seem to bare much resemblance to the verbs and vocabulary that I will be tested on.
I don’t know if I did the right thing when I agreed to do this exam. Part of me likes the idea of having something to work towards but my feelings about the exam are putting me off the language. I have to keep reminding myself that it’s not Japanese I hate but rather it’s feeling unprepared for an exam that makes me feel like this.
I’m going to take a break to eat the strawberries dipped in chocolate that Marty bought me as they are bound to improve my mood.
