1. The fear

2. The IT glitch-related anxiety

3. The questionable choice of location

4. The sentence that you probably shouldn’t have included


5. The short-lived burst of euphoria that appears from out of nowhere

6. The sense of doom returns

7. The friend who it’s time to sever ties with

8. The fellow losers who you’ll build new friendships with on the dole

9. The Situational Judgement what…?

10. The race against the clock

11. The end
