I am grateful for the faith my friends and loved ones have in me. Through no fault other than my own I am suddenly taking the GRE on Monday, having not yet really studied. The two people I spoke to about my dilemma (my running partner and my husband) both had the same reaction. "Well, that's kind of soon but you're smart, you like tests and you'll do great."
I still panicked and had to eat a Totino's Party Pizza last night (um, emotional eating anyone?) but those few words helped to assuage my racing heart. It feels a little bit like college, hunkering down to cram.
Minus the numerous smoke breaks, of course.
