when things get complicated…

a simple sign post in france...


my three GRE prep books arrived with gusto in the oh-so-familiar amazon.com fashion..complete with a smile.
now stacked in a crisp tower of pages within arms reach, waiting to be read….i can feel it…..

i think they are staring at me.

my folder, let’s not forget my quirky organization, labeled ‘Graduate School & Information’ sitting pretty directly next to my tower, also within arms reach…

staring at me.

what?!? what do you want?

i don’t make the rules. i couldn’t have predicted this! nor do i pretend to know how this is all going to work. i mean, it will work. let’s get that part straight. what i do know is that it’s just getting complicated.

so it turns out that i most likely will not even need to take the GRE. at all. the program i thought would be perfect, well…just wasn’t. i really didn’t even fit into the little mold that they wanted their cute recruits to be molded from. so, perhaps it is best not to go there anyway. (wow, i need to be more positive right?)

that’s not to say i wasn’t totally down and out dissapointed when i learned this.
i drove 45 minutes one way for 3 minutes time with an advisor. they like to cut to the chase.

so when things get complicated, i say bring it on.

when i feel like i just don’t know how everything will work out, i say bring it on.

hey, at least amazon accepts returns :-)

    Good to know that it’s not the right place now as opposed to after you’ve wasted time studying for and taking the GRE. :)

    You’re a determined lady…you’ll find the right place for you, just takes time to research.
