So I’m completely done with the GRE. Wonderful! And I’m working on my portfolio. Awesome. But I’m not Really working on it. What is it about procrastination that gets you to surf mindlessly for 45 minutes until you realize, “Wait, why was I on my computer in the first place? Oh yes! I’m writing!” Why […]
The experience was not as daunting as I expected it to be. The most harrowing part of taking the test is the Pre-test taking!
First you enter a room where they hand you a disclaimer that states you understand that you cannot share any information on the GRE with anyone, you cannot have anything in your pockets (and by anything they do mean anything, not even a piece of paper, your chap stick, definitely not your cell phone, eye drops, a pen, a paper clip – Nothing!), and they make you write this statement in cursive in a section beneath it. You receive a key and a locker for your belongings. Additionally, you cannot wear a sweater, a bandanna, or a hat. Not to mention that of course you are prohibited from eating or drinking in the testing area. It doesn’t stop there.

Studying for the GRE was at times grueling, frustrating, and downright demeaning. Why should I have to subject myself to take this gosh forsaken standardized test for school? But alas, some of my choices do require it so I registered for the freaking thing. With the date steadily approaching, I am much more calm, cool, […]
In junior high school, I discovered the wonderful world of novels written by Christopher Pike. I read everything he wrote except for some lesser known works. But for the most part, if he wrote it, I read it. The same goes for R.L. Stine but that’s another post. I recently bought one of his popular […]
After days and hours of GRE practice with words and basic math, I was able to score a 900 on my second CAT test via the Princeton Review website. I was excited and I couldn’t believe how much I improved in a short amount of time. My first CAT test was 750 – more on […]
