feeling like myself

I have never been the kind of person who frets about how I'll do on exams. I always knew I would do well. I'm sure that, in high school and in college, most of that certainty was sheer ego. But even since then, I've never worried about not *getting* something.

And suddenly, I feel quite dumb. How can I not get this logic stuff? Why can't I see the solutions? Why won't my brain make those connections? I am frustrated with studying, and I am frustrated with myself. The worst thing is that I don't really know how to stop feeling so frustrated—I can't fix it.

If anyone has suggestions to help me stop feeling helpless, I welcome them. If anyone has suggestions for how to get over my fixation with the Logic games sections of the LSAT, you can share them, but I can't promise I'll actually read them. Too many cooks, and all.
