made it out a live.

Welp. I did it. I took the GRE & I am still a live to tell the tale & no one is dead {which I honestly did not think that I would be able to do}. I don’t feel as if “miserable” is the way to describe the experience; because, well, that’s what it was – an experience. And I have been through miserable points in my life & this one cannot be added to that list.

Interesting. I think that’s how I will categorize this. It was interesting to see myself sit down & hardcore study {a habit that I thought had disappeared after my AP tests in high school}. It was interesting in how much math I had to relearn {the math on the GRE is not difficult, however, since I was in advanced math classes the last time I studied geometry or solved for the slope was in 8th grade. And then I became an art major}. It was interesting that I went in & was confident {I was a hot, fidgeting mess the morning of. But the second I sat at the comp & started I was fine. I flew right through it}. And, though this shouldn’t be considered really interesting, it was interesting how much support & well wishes I got through out this process.

So thank you to those who stood by my side & encouraged me, it was not an easy journey {especially for my poor, live-in boyfriend}. After countless late nights, study dates, trips to Starbucks & Panera, palm to forehead moments, tears, pencils, emails-calls-texts and study breaks – I did it! And my amazement of how lucky I am to have such wonderful cheerleaders in my life continues.

Now I just to await the results….
