These are photos of students preparing for their Gaokao exams in China. I don’t know if this is your cup of tea but for me this reminds me that there are millions of kids my age who study far longer and far harder than I do…And that the things I currently study for my exams are nothing compared to what Mainlanders do.

Forge on my friends, forge on. You are capable of things far beyond your imagination.


First year of medicine studying material. I had 10 subjects this year and in second year, which starts in 9 days, we have 12 subjects. TWELVE. Goodness.
