3. I mean ... I didn’t lose it on purpose.

6. I swear the exams were harder this year. They were so much harder.


7. Those dudes sitting in offices in England SET US UP!!!!! (Shakes fist angrily.)


8. PSA for all family members: STOP ASKING ME WHAT I GOT, I WOULD ALSO LIKE TO KNOW MY RESULTS.


9. Look, plenty of important, successful people were college dropouts, okay? I don’t need results to determine who I am. I’m more than a number.

18. FOUND THE PAPER WITH MY PASSWORD


19. !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

21. I’m not going to check them. I’m not going to check them.
