The Gauntlet of Exams

The time is drawing near, when every desk, chair, and couch will be occupied in the library.

Students with determined dead eyed stares, head bent in prayer that they just pass the class with the minimum grade.

Bright computer screen reflect in glassy eyes, tears rolling down the faces of those who can not handle the pressure.

Frustrated sighs echo through the quiet buzz of project discussions, theory review, and equation spouting.

Jittery bodies shot up with caffeine rock and jump as the mind tries to focus on the words and numbers.

Keyboards are pounded on as papers are hastily written, adding to the low hum of activity with in the walls.

We all hope we can survive the gantlet of exams.
