Scary Things

I started studying for the Quantitative portion of the GRE yesterday. Yikes. It's been 11 years since I sat down with a math book, and I had forgotten all about the panic and confusion and horrid horrid horrid combination of me and critical reasoning. Matthew and I are going to sit down together tonight and work some. I hope that helps. I was really excited to go to the Truck Stop and have pancakes and sit by each other to study just like in college, but it snowed, so we'll have to make do here at home. If I can get to the point where I can rationally read the question and think about it, it will be a big improvement. I'm sure that crying and picking answers at random is not my best option.

I also entered the Craftster "Craft Your Resolution" Challenge. I've wanted to enter a challenge forever, but been too shy and scared and uninspired. It was super scary to do, but all of the responses have been kind, and now that I'm over the first hurdle, maybe I'll participate more in the forum. Such nice kindred spirits there. If you're feeling kind, stop by and vote for me 2/6/08-2/12/08. You have to join Craftster to vote, but surely you want to do that anyway. Here's a nudge. Also feel free to vote for something other than mine. There are lots of amazing projects. I haven't decided which I'm voting for.

My blogger spell check doesn't work any more. Does anyone else have this problem? I hate not having it. Makes me feel intellectually naked. I like the protective blanket spell check provides.

I love your project and the crafty people are so sweet, I wish I was one of you.

It seems like you're a lifelong learner--are you heading back to official school with all this GRE talk? It was fun to be reminded of my own college study sessions at Village Inn. :)

mllr--you could be one of us! There's a photography section in the "more art, less craft" division.

melanie--I'm hoping to be accepted to the University of Southern Mississippi's Master of Arts in Teaching Languages. I get to do 15 hours of Spanish!! And 15 hours of education stuff, but at least it's all about language acquisition, so it should be applicable. I'm excited to be in school again.

Well, we all cried and picked answers at random so don't stress yourself out about that.
