In less than 24 hours, I will be sitting in front of a computer, making educated guesses and thinking about a good week to sign up for my second GRE. A few hours after that, I will be looking at my raw scores for the first GRE. God, I hope they are good because I don’t want to take them again.
My last few weeks have been dedicated to this test. Often I wonder if the decision to head into a graduate program was wise, because all this schooling and studying has left me strapped for cash and time. I’m barely holding on to a decent diet.
But really, isn’t that life? So I haven’t gotten a cardio workout in this week — I’ll get one in during a run this evening. But the victory of this week will be in the eating habits I worked hard to control despite the studying and stressing about my work. Call this an off week for exercise, but it is not the end of my life or my journey.
Do you guys out there know what I mean? Is life tripping you up? What tactics do you use to jump over the hurdle and move on with a grand plan?
