My favorite part of my “Princeton Review Cracking the GRE – 2010 Edition” book was found in Chapter 2 under how to get ready for the test section.
“A week before the test is not the time for any major life changes. This is NOT the time to quit smoking, start smoking, quit drinking coffee, start drinking coffee, start a relationship, end a relationship, or quit a job. Business as usual, okay?”
I’m thinking of this as I’m going in to take the test and smiling. Mostly because I’ve flown 6000 miles across multiple time zones to get to my testing location. I’ve got jet lag, an almost one year baby girl that woke up twice last night, and I’m riding on a subway (oops, I mean, the tube) to a location that I have never been to before.
Just the hazards of living overseas.
