Pre-exam/presentation rituals/good luck charms

Posted 24 February 2011 - 08:58 AM

Hey guys,

I was talking with a couple friends before our midterm the other day and found that most of them have a good luck charm or ritual they do before a exam. One of them brings a spiderman action figure that he had since the he was a kid, another brings a figurine of a cat...

I personally put on a fresh pair of socks and underwear right before I leave for the exam (Note: I do this every morning as well).

What do you do?

wait... if you do this every morning... how is this a ritual unique to exams or presentations? How is it not just something you just do.


or do you actually go back home, and change your underwear and socks, and then go back to class?

or wait, do you carry fresh underwear and socks with you, and you change into them before entering the class?

In the hallway just before the class?

And you only wear the underwear and socks, and nothing else?

And do you yell out to the class that you're the turkey man and you will dig up and devour their first pet dog if they even dare think of stealing your cheeseburgers?

That is weird.

I carry one of those Golden Pokemon cards (Pikachu) with me whenever I have a test or something big is coming up.

I live off campus, so I most of the time I am at home before a exam, so i will put on a fresh pair before I walk out the door. The ritual is before the exam no matter what time of the day I put on fresh pair of underwear and socks.

To balance out the crazy in this thread, I did this thing called studying and sleeping. No amount of luck was going to save me from a vicious Computing Systems exam, nor was some ridiculous figurine in my pocket.

haha I do these things along side studying. (I figured studying would be second hand to most and not considered a ritual)
