It's tomorrow, it's tomorrow!


In just about 24 hours, I'll be sitting my happy ass down to take the GRE. It's crazy to think that it's already been three months since I quit my job to start studying for this test [mostly] full time. Some weeks I was more dedicated than others, but I'm hoping that the hours I've managed to put in thus far will pay off, and then I can have a real month of summer with zero worries before school starts back up at the end of August. Wishful thinking, right?

In other news, I finally finished Dark Places by Gillian Flynn, which marks a whopping 2/10 books read for my summer to-do list. But not to worry! I have until September until summer is officially over. Technically, I have until January if we're talking Florida summer. Anyway, I should have a review of Dark Places up some time next week. Up next: The Art of Racing in the Rain. I've heard phenomenal things about this book, and it's been sitting in my bookshelf for a hot minute, so I figure I'll give it a whirl.

Okay so basically there was no real point to this post. Truthfully, it's just a sad excuse for me to beg you to send me "good vibes," "good luck," "chocolate chip cookies," etc. in preparation for the test tomorrow. I know I can always take it again, but if I don't have to drop another $200 to do so, I won't really be upset about it. Touching on my post from earlier in the week, yet another way to save money: don't bomb the GRE. Okay, great.

Have a great weekend! Thankfully I'm heading to a friend's birthday dinner mere hours after the test, so you better believe that, win or lose, home girl will drink to that.

    1. Thank you for the kind words! They definitely helped :) and I loved it, but I definitely loved Gone Girl a little more. I'm super excited for the movie, though!

  2. Good luck on the GRE! I've had a study book collecting dust for a little over a year. I still haven't decided if I want to take it and go back to school or not! Did you like Dark Places? It's on my list to read!

    1. Mine was collecting dust for six months, haha! I finally just put the money down to take the test when it was about four months away as incentive to study. I did like Dark Places! But it's definitely, for lack of a better word, dark. For sure a creepy book, but an interesting read!
