September is almost over! And today I got to check off my first goal of the semester: “Score competatively on the GRE.” Hurrah!
The test went pretty well. It wasn’t as stupendous as my ACT scores, but they’re above the 70th percentile, so I feel pretty decent about them. I somehow scored considerably better on the math section than I did on the verbal section. Maybe it was because I was wearing my “lucky” maroon Mizzou T-shirt.
But really I think I was so freaked out about trying to recall everything I learned in 9th grade geometry and 10th grade Algebra II that I didn’t even bother studying vocab, which came back to get me. Oh well.
It’s been a surprisingly good week. I was dreading it for the GRE and for all the final retreat details I’d have to pull together, but it’s been better than expected. I got to have some awesome meals with Max and Ben, had some productive study time for the GRE, got a lot of last minute retreat stresses taken care of, found out that Mark and Macie are having a baby (!) and have had some amazing girl time with Breezy, Sam, Amanda and Funfetti cupcakes.
On top of that, it’s been a good day in general. I slept in, watched Glee, did some homework, took my test, had some SC check-ins, celebrated the end of the GRE with Thomas with tacos and my first margarita, finished up some stuff for The Rock Fall Retreat in a few days, filmed an LT promotional video, watched Gossip Girl and watched Modern Family.
I even got good mail today! I got a letter from my LT friend Melissa, an encouraging note from one of the Rock staffers Mazvita and my, Emily’s and Amy’s tickets to see Spring Awakening in a few weeks!
But you know what the best part of today was? All the prayer and encouragement I got from my friends. I got so many Facebook wall posts, text messages, door decorations (posted below!) wishing me luck and asking me how it went. Thanks so much, friends. It seriously meant a lot to me. I am so thankful to have you all supporting me in Operation Finish Line!
