Why oh why did I decide to do NaBloPoMo? I’m totally not in the mood to blog today but here I am typing away because I don’t want to miss a day. I really don’t have anything relevant to say right now! Argh! I hate writer’s block. Is it still writer’s block when you just don’t want to write or does it only apply when you can’t think of anything to write about?
Currently I am sitting on my couch thinking about the dreaded work week ahead. I hate going to work and the only thing that keeps me going is graduate school in the spring. I hope to attend Eastern Michigan University for a Masters of Public Administration with a focus on managing non-profits. Anytime I struggle with how much I hate what I’m doing at work, I try to remind myself that soon I’ll be on my way to a better and more fulfilling future. For good measure I’ll also throw in a “serenity now!” and then I really feel better.
I received the results of my GRE exam and I scored precisely how I thought I would: Terrible in the math section (really, REALLY terrible), above average in the verbal reasoning section and a perfect score on the analytical writing section.
The wonderful coincidence is after I spent months agonizing over, and conveniently not studying for, the GRE test it turns out the program I want to apply to doesn’t even *require* it. How sweet is that?! I can’t believe I only realized after I spent hundreds of dollars on the test that the results are essentially meaningless – because I knew I was terrible at math to begin with and also knew I am capable of writing crap on the fly. This blog post proves that, so who needs a fancy-schmancy test?
What was I writing about? Oh yeah, work. Work sucks and blogging every day can be a painful process.
I hope you all had a great weekend! Is anyone struggling with NaBloPoMo or is it just me?
