      Have you picked out your clothes for the exam? I am yet to decide between my cargo trousers and comfy jeans (need a comfortable waistband so my stomach doesn’t hurt). I’ll wear a T-shirt and a lightweight long-sleeve hoodie or shirt over it. Casual shoes. I’ll check the weather close to the day so that I know exactly what to put on.

      I was thinking of wearing a dusty rose colour dress and flats. Especially with how warm the weather is getting in Toronto these days I will ditch the hoodie but might opt for a blazer.

      LOL it all depends on how early I wake up.

      @diya Though we are both on the northern hemisphere, it’s still not even spring over here… freezing cold.

      @vincentt I thought you were in London, isn’t it nice there yet?

      It is pretty nice here in Toronto (well I live in Mississauga but I’m close to Toronto!) and the weather is really nice! I sometimes study outside.

      And the exam centre is like 30 min away from my house. How sweet is that?!

      @diya yes, i’m in london. There are still people wearing winter coat. It’s about 8C, but it feels colder though.

      haha i live a few stops away from the exam centre, beat that 😛 . And no, i didn’t move here just to get close to the exam centre. 😀

      @vincentt I guess I’ll have to wave the white flag of defeat.

      Clothes isn’t the only way to stick out.
      I remember when I was writing an exam for … something I garnered so many dirty looks by talking animatedly outside the exam room about prison break. I don’t get people who discuss the exam topics outside the exam room. That makes me jumpy.

      Same here @Diya. I don’t like discussing either, very annoying.

      I think i’ll just wear my shorts and t-shirt for this exam. Last time, I was too uncomfy with jeans.

      @diya @sidmenon I was contemplating designing a t-shirt to address that, something like: “Talk about the exam in my face and I will tiger-punch you in the gonads.”
