Ok, so, ever have like this huge list of stuff planned to get done over this really great time period where you could get said stuff done with little to no distraction or stress from outside environments and then suddenly realize that it is the end of said time period and said list has not been done?! I said said a lot. That’s a really funny sentance cause if you do not read it carefully, your brain will automatically correct the mistake. So you’d just read it “I said a lot.” But that’s not what I typed. See, I learned this last week while I was studying for the GMAT, the Graduate Management Admissions Test. Sounds spiffy, huh? It was really, really, CRAPPY! Imagine the SAT, or ACT, whichever you took, on steriods, then green like the hulk, then poping rockstar energy drinks for kicks. I totally had to pay $250 for these people to torture me with questions like:

If a certian seamstress in a garmet shop made 65 coats, what percent of the shop’s total output of coats did she make?

(1) The shop made a total of 325 coats.
(2) The number of coats made by the seamstress represents 1/5 of the shop’s output of coats.

A. Statement (1) ALONE is sufficient, but statement (2) alone is not suffcient to answer the question asked.
B. Statement (2) ALONE is sufficient, but statement (1) alone is not suffcient to answer the question asked.
C. Both statements together are sufficient to answer the question asked, but NEITHER statement ALONE is sufficient.
D. EACH statement ALONE is sufficient to answer the question asked.
E. Statements (1) and (2) together are NOT sufficient to answer the question asked and additional data specific to the problem are needed.

Sounds sorta simple right? WRONG! That’s just the example to get you to understand how the problems work! So anyway, I am freaking out about taking this bear of a test. I need a 430 to get into the school, but for some reason I thought I needed at 610. I get my “unofficial” score back, and it’s a 550, and I about died, cause that means I’d have to stab myself in the eye with more study materials and take this thing again in a month. But I don’t! And that statment ALONE is sufficient to make me very happy, for the rest of that day that is, cause the next day I had to go to Georgia Southern and do a couple of job interviews for Graduate Assistantships. While before my whole graduate experience depends on me passing a test, it now depends on me getting one of these positions, what’s worse? I’m glad you asked. Yah, you did ask, I know you did, I can see it in your keystrokes, the way your fingers are hitting the keys. What? I’m a computer guy, of course I can do that. Anyway, it is going to take about two weeks for me to find out! GAK! GACK! ACK! KAC! RACK! Ok, enough permutations.

So anywho, it’s back to the regular grind, with nothing done, and a nervous situation for the next two weeks. YAY! Go read a book.
