GMAT Adventures

 

Yaaaaayyyy I’m going to take the GMAT!

*record scratch* No. I am not elated, I am currently reviewing what I am up against and I am now realizing. I should have started studying MONTHS ago. I plan on taking the GMAT sometime at the end of next month (AHHH!) I can get with reading and comprehension, those have been my strong subjects throughout my life, but the Quantitative portion of this test. Jesus, Allah, and Jehovah, help me! I have not seen an integer since sophomore year in college, and an isosceles triangle since the early 2000’s. I am rusty. I know with a little patience and hours of crunching I can wing it. I am excited to embark on this post graduate trek, HOWEVER, I believe that this entrance test is pure malarkey. I guess my student loan debt receipt and my diploma is not enough to get me into grad school.

Oh wells, many before me have had to take this test, and I have asked a few friends and acquaintances how do they feel about the GMAT? A lot of it was not that positive. One person even looked at me like I had 6 heads when I asked them about their experience. One reason a friend gave me is that it is difficult, because the test adapts to you (making it difficult to prepare and study) two because it’s about stuff we will never in life get to use unless we are an engineer, biochemist, or an architect. I look forward to spending the 250.00 and I better pass with flying colors, because Sallie Mae has a death grip hold on my bank account. I cannot afford to take this test this year again. So wish me luck!!

*disclaimer I am not usually this cynical but based on what I am reviewing I feel overwhelmed*

It’s My Birthday!

It’s My Birthday! It’s my birthday. 28 today I’m in 1st place. I have received tons of well wishes and Instagram posts from my friends. I feel loved. Thanks to everyone I appreciate you all! I made it to 28! I am happy with where I am at in my present life and I am looking forward to the new experiences I will embark on. I have a career, I have ambition, I have a 401k! I am blessed to take vacations! I love to workout! I enjoy being a pet owner! I love the Lord! I am just grateful. Thursday I will be going to Vegas  and as they say these days I’m going to TURN UP! Hopefully, I won’t wake up in a new Bugatti, because the way my bank account is set up….. I owe Sallie Mae. LOL.

 

On a fitness note. I tried a new workout yesterday and got my heart rate all the way up to 185! Wow! I also broke the machine but that didn’t stop me! lol try it out if you dare!
