I'm taking the GRE in a week in a half.  And it kind of makes me want to vomit.

I scheduled the test a month or two ago and then promptly put off studying.  Now I have 10 days to cram, because that totally works for these types of tests.

That's not to say that I haven't studied at all, I just haven't put as much time into it as I should have.  I keep clinging to the fact that even though I've haven't been a student for almost 3 years, I have spent the better part of the past 2 years in the university setting (and classroom).

That should be enough, right?

I took two practice tests today, and I could tell that was a lot by the end of the second.  The number I was getting wrong shot up in the last few problems.

So that's what I'll be doing for a while (along with setting up letters of recommendation--I am so behind the ball) and writing a personal statement.  I have until February 1st to get it all done.

I can't really put this work off any longer.
