It was, yes, very hard, and had to do quite a bit of guessing, but I wasn't as anxious during the test as I thought I'd be. In fact at the end, it felt little anticlimactic; I was like "That's it? I studied my life away for a computer test?" After studying all day and night for almost two months, you don't care anymore and just wanna finish the darn 8 hour exam.
Luckily, I have a 100% fool proof method for falling asleep.
Me: Rats....I can't sleep. Well, time to sing... ♫ A hundred bottles of pop on the wall, a hundred bottles of pop! Take one down, pass it around, ninety-nine bottles of pop on the wall. Ninety-nine bottles of pop on the wall...♫
B: You sang A hundred bottles of pop to fall asleep?? Who does that!?? What number did you get to??
Me: Um, I made it to the high twenties or low thirties....I can't remember exactly.
B: Oh my GOD, You made it THAT far?? That must have taken an hour!! 0_o
Me: OMG it's 7am - time to wake up! *checks clock* Oh, it's only 4:30am. Rats *fall asleep*
Me: OMG it's 7am - time to wake up! *checks clock* Oh, it's only 5:30am. Rats *fall asleep*
Me: OMG it's 7am - time to wake up! *checks clock* Oh, it's only 6:30am. Damnit, I give up. *gets out of bed to eat food*
I can't have coffee because of my bet with Bryan, but I drank a ton of caffeine with these lattes. These kept me going these past 2 months and the day of the test. B thinks my blood is comprised of green tea now. Anyways, I made an enormous thermos of Chai Latte and kept it in the test locker - every break I made sure to sip some to stay awake (and of course go to the bathroom with all the caffeine).

Chai Tea Latte
1 black tea/english breakfast individual teabag (or 1/2 tablespoon loose leaf tea) *
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon ground ginger
1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
1 - 1 1/2 cups water
1/4 - 1/3 cup almond or regular milk
1 tablespoon honey, plus more to taste
milk foam and ground nutmeg, optional
* If you have chai tea, you can skip the cinnamon, ginger, and allspice since it's already mixed in
Stovetop method (good for large batches): Bring the water to boil in a small saucepan. Add teabag/loose tea, spices, and honey and simmer for 3-5 minutes. Add in milk and remove from heat. Adjust sweetness /milk to taste. Strain and pour into a mug.
Teapot and electric teakettle method (quick and easy): Heat water in electric teakettle. Add teabag/loose tea and spices in a teapot. Pour heated water into the teapot and let seep for a few minutes to desired strength. Pour tea into a mug. Add in honey and milk to desired taste.
To make the foam, put milk in a blender (or frother if you're so fancy) and pulse until foam appears. Top the tea with your milk froth scooped from the top and sprinkle additional nutmeg. Enjoy!
