What's crazy is that I'm unsure of what to blog about anymore! I'm feeling a little uninspired. Maybe it's because GRE prep is sucking up my creative energy since I'm practicing so many dull strategic (ewww) techniques for the exam.
A few days I kept thinking: "I need to blog, I want to blog, BUT I don't know what to say."
Hopefully, my blogger's block goes away soon! For now though, I thought I'd share my plans this summer.
Today--tra la la la--was my last day of work! I wrapped up my third school year babysitting Jasmine and like I never spend summers with her, I now have my days outstretched waiting for me to make it (what?)
With my time off, I plan to put in extra hours studying for the GRE. I'm taking the exam on July 21--YIKES, almost a month away! Lemme say, studying for this exam has been humbling if nothing else...sometimes I am SO sure I have the right answer only to see that something else made more sense after all. I only hope to do alright on the math as it's more important for me to do well on the verbal and essays since I'm applying to writing programs.
So after I take the GRE hopefully doing alright, the plan is to spend the rest of July and all of August writing a couple stories for my 30 page portfolio to grad programs. Currently, I only have an 8 page story I'm proud of...Ugh, I can't wait till after I take the exam so badly it hurts! Well, it's not that bad...but let's say I'm already thinking of ways to celebrate the very moment after I take the exam. I also just am really excited to write my portfolio even though I imagine that when I start it will be challenging and stressful, but still more fulfilling than GRE stuff!
So that's my summer.
Studying + Writing. It's such a good thing I'm not working (and only PT in the fall) since time is so precious these next few months with the application process.
I'm hoping to fit in a beach day somewhere. And hopefully rides at Coney Island! I'm thinking a couple days to regroup and relax after the exam is only fair...
Look how short my hair was last summer! Crazy!
Now, at graduation weeks ago!
Hoping everyone is well! What are your plans this summer? I wish I had travel plans! Lovelovelove.
