I suppose this is a bit different from the usual FancyFacts, but I feel it is important. Even though I enjoyed university, I spent a lot of time throwing my books at the wall. And it is very hard for someone to see how much time it took me to understand something when all they see is the A on my final exam.

I also have to say that even though it was hard, it was worth it, but it won’t get easier for anyone if people refuse to admit that they can struggle with something. That will just make people feel alone. You are not alone 🙂

And also: you can have learned a LOT even though you don’t get an A, exams are not everything. The most important thing is that you learn, and that you learn how to learn!
