The one thing I've learned from watching The Biggest Loser (yes, I'm addicted and I'm not even embarrassed about it) is "Finish what you started".

So that's what I did today when I went to the entrance exam of the university I so want to get into. Quite a few things were against me:
- my friend's 1,5 week visit was right in the middle of my two month reading period (we get the material only two months before the exam)
- I learned about the problems my brother has with his wife and family, and I had a few sleepless nights because of that
- I got really sick on the last week, and couldn't read most of that time
- I couldn't sleep for two nights right before the exam because I was coughing so much
- I was still very sick today when I did the exam, coughing the whole time, my nose so stuffy it's hard to breathe

I wanted to give up because it felt so useless to try. I really needed the last week for preparing to the exam, but the sickness prevented me from doing most of the work.

I went to the exam anyway and did my best. I have no idea if it was enough, but I'm really proud of myself for finishing what I started and not giving up. I didn't give it my all because I could've read more before, but when I went to the exam I really did give it my all. I did my best in these circumstances and that's enough. I think I already won. :P

Because a year ago, I would've given up. This time, I went all the way. :)
