Have you ever noticed that sometimes it’s hard to follow your own song? Not going to lie, it’s 15 days out until the GRE and I’m very nervous. I have a lot of anxiety about the math section. So far, I have been doing extraordinarily well on the verbal. But the math…is humbling.
I never thought I’d be so serious about this but I think I’m really going to have to shut myself down for a couple weeks until the test. This test means a lot to me because even though 2012 looks to be a very exciting year, I still want the security of knowing I will be going to school and defer a semester if I needed to.
I realized it on my bike ride that as much as I love Albany- the bike trails, the summers, Thacher, the Hudson, the Mohawk, easy access to the upper Catskills, kayaking, the people, the shop owners who know your name, Alive at 5, EQX- professionally, it’s not cutting it because I don’t have my Masters and I’m so tired of feeling limited because I don’t have it.
For example, I want experience in…
– Grant writing. There are so many jobs that desire that. I want the skills and experience
– writing press releases
– GIS (but that’s a given, seeing that I will be studying Environmental Policy)
I also want to live in DC and have a nice paycheck while doing something I love. Be able to take public transit or ride my bike to work. Take trips to Montreal. Maybe live there. Go to the Pacific Northwest and just get lost in the beauty. I could live there too. And most importantly, smile a lot and make my family proud. God, we’ve been through so much this year with my brother’s cancer, I really want us to explore and have some new memories together.
This is a haphazard post but I think I sorted some things out. Bring it on GRE. I’m going back to school.
