Holy Cannoli!

I can't believe it's almost been a FULL month since my last post! Where does the time go!? I'm warning you, this isn't going to be a long post, just a little update to let all of you know what's been happening to keep me so busy - too busy to POST!

1. Work: I've been working up a storm! A couple weeks ago I worked 15 hours in one day - from 5:45am to 8:45pm. What a long day! Besides that, lately I've been staying late at work to get everything done. I like being this busy, the days fly by and I feel so productive. I told my boss that I'm planning on going to graduate school. He took it okay, kind of. Of course, he wants me to be happy, but he wants me to stay. Every day he says something like "Are you sure you don't want to stay?" or "You can't leave, how will we get by without you?" It's flattering and I don't really feel pressured because I know he really cares about me and wants me to be happy - even if that means leaving. He's a good guy.

2. GRE: I'm taking the GRE this FRIDAY!! Yes, I'm a little stressed. I've tried to study a little bit every night, but I kind of slacked off at the beginning of the month. So, the last couple weeks I've been putting in lots of time and trying to cram all sorts of info into my brain. I just want to do well. The problem is that I don't know what "well" is. With the ACT I knew that 36 was the high, 30's were really good, and upper 20's were good. I have no clue what constitutes a good GRE score. Sigh. My boss said he only studied a week and got a "good score". He couldn't remember what his score was, though.

3. Moving: What was I thinking?!?! I'm moving the day AFTER the GRE! I must be insane. So, while I've been trying to study like mad, I've also had to pack, throw things away, take things to storage, etc. I decided to move because my roommate is moving sometime this year. I could have stayed by myself, but I want to save money for graduate school. When my mom offered to let me live with her again, I scoffed at the idea then realized I could save a good amount of money without having to get a second job or a new roommate. I already know that I get along with Mom. So, I'm doing it. Wish me luck.

Well, that turned out to be longer than I thought. No more, though. I have to go home and pack, move things to my storage shed, and study.
