I felt that way about until I came home and was pointed to Steve Job’s 2005 Stanford Commencement Address (iTunes required to download video, you can also read the transcript) by Sho. That really picked me up. It put a bit of perspective on things hearing him talk about his brush with death and how we're all here for such a short time.
He also said something else that really struck a chord with me.
Again, you can't connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something — your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever.I liked this part in particular, because I myself really don't have any solid plans for my life; I know it's not that responsible, and it's probably incredibly foolish to just trust blindly that it will somehow work out... But for some reason, that's just how it is. I don't think I'd be able to set out a plan stating "at year X I will be married, have Y amount of income and Z number of kids". I'll just have to go on and hope the dots connect down the line.

The main thing to remember is that you don't need to know 100% to pass the test, so if I remember how 70% the kanji are written, 70% on-readings and 70% kun-readings, I figure I should be alright.
