recently.

Forgive my silence.


I’m taking the GRE in exactly the day after a week from now—next thursday! I’m teetering between anxiety and confidence!

Busy, busy times.

In the past few weeks, I’ve been able to get much better at the Quantitative (Math) section of the exam. I virtually had to learn to count again. Like, suddenly the times tables I learnt in elementary school held value again…the harder ones I forgot though (a couple days ago it took me literally two minutes to figure out 9 times 7).

The verbal part of the exam is easier for me (but still a challenge!)—and it’s actually the part that matters more for me since I’m apply to Creative Writing MFA programs that are much more interested in my verbal and essay scores . Lots of people have said to me, “Oh the verbal part should be so easy for you!” Not so at all since a large part of the exam tests vocabulary and words that no one uses in real life.

So that’s what I’ve been doing mostly. What are y’all up to?

Things are going well in the exercise department and ok (my appetite is low: CRAZYsounlikeme) eating-wise. I probably won’t be able to fit blogging in till after the exam unfortunately…pray that I do alright?! Lovelovelove.
