As I said in my last post, I don’t think Murphy’s Laws are at all useful and they also aren’t all that funny. I can forgive the first, of course, but not the second.
Below I have compiled some anti-Murphy’s laws. They’re just as likely to be true as their more depressing counterparts, and considerably more likely to make you feel better as you finish exams.
- If you had never heard of a concept in the exam before, no one else had either.
- In the five minutes of last minute cramming outside the exam room, you read at least one thing that was useful.
- That assignment that took WAY TOO LONG helped with one of the exam questions.
- You remember every question you struggled with but forget most of the ones you did well at.
- That kid who left half an hour before you had given up.
- That kid who left half an hour after you was freaking out.
- Anyone who claims it was really easy is joking, mistaken, and/or about to find out they no longer have any friends.
