I'm back from Houston and neglecting you chaps tremendously. Don't worry, I'm neglecting running just as much. Feel free to canoodle with each other in my absence, I deserve it for being negligent in our bloggy relationship. If it makes you feel better, I'm kicking the boy out of town tonight so I can study.
Upon returning from Houston I was thrust knee deep (twss?) into GRE prep. Before I left for Houston I realized I needed to take the GRE like....yesterday... to get my scores to my #1 school in time. So of course I scheduled the test for ten days out. I put a GRE prep book on hold at my library, and go figure it came in at noon last Wednesday....after my flight left at 10am.
When my flight home was delayed 2 1/2 hours out of Minneapolis, I was really wishing I had some materials to study, but to no avail. Wednesday morning I awoke to realize that my GRE prep book hold had expired. I called to my local library, and talked to a librarian who said I should have it "by Thursday or Friday," so of course I explained my procrastination to her and that I NEEDED IT NOW. To which she replied: Oh it's a really big book, I doubt you'll get through it by Saturday.
Um..... challenge accepted!
The first thing the book tells you (well technically you have to read it...obvs) is that this isn't the sort of test that can be "crammed for." Again... challenge accepted. If there's anything my expensive private school education taught me, it's that I can cram my little booty off.
GRE....bring it on!
P.S. Let's ignore the fact that I forgot to put on make up this morning for work, so I am very "fresh faced" in my photo. Nbd.
