ME!! I am not going to apologize for being away, just explain my absense (for the handful of you that read this).
So last week I spent the majority of my time studying and working. My GRE exam was on Friday and I did relatively well. We spent a quality amount of time at Left Hand as well due to several GABF activities (HOORAY FOR MILK STOUT NITRO IN A BOTTLE!!).
Then it hit me! Sunday I woke up with no voice. Not even a whisper. We ran a few errands and I spent the majority of the afternoon watching Mad Men.
Monday was still a quiet day for me but I had to go to work, can’t miss a Monday! I spent most of the day organizing myself and praying that the day would go by faster. I felt even worse yesterday and ended up going home around lunchtime. I napped and watched TV until the Husband came home and went to bed around 8:00.
I had to come in today. I am still stuffy and a little stiff but the tea and DayQuil seem to be working. Here’s hoping for 6:00!
So today I took a big step in path towards going back to school. The minute I was done with my undergrad, I knew that I would be pursuing more education. In a recent post by Cassie at Back to Her Roots, she asked what dream job you would take. I am a life long learner and I wish that I could spend the rest of my life in the classroom. As nice as it would be to take classes without a degree or focus in mind, I will be spending time working towards a MA in Religious Studies and hopefully a Ph.D. after that.
So back to the big step, today I signed up for the GRE!!
I have been putting this off for 3 years and I finally sat down and picked a date today. I spent the money and have downloaded the practice files. It’s time to roll up my sleeves and get studying. The Husband said I have to spend 90 minutes a night working on studying and taking practice tests. I am testing on September 30th and hopefully it will be good enough to start applying!
Anyone out there remember anything about the GRE? Any tips?
