Finally I am done with GRE!!!! Life can go on as usual :P
Seriously, my life had been put on hold for the past one month. Everything was about GRE. GREGREGREGREGREGREGRE.... well... you get the point. And the past two weeks ESPECIALLY. I was either locked up in my room or in the library, studying. And now finally it is over and here I am sitting on my bed... no words to memorize, no math problems to solve.... no practise tests, no tension, no worries.... I'm feeling kinda bored :P :P After all the complaining I did about how boring GRE preparation was, I am guessing people will queue up to punch me in the face if I say I already miss studying for GRE.
Anyways, GRE went well... I won't go into details... I just thought I would announce here that I am free (for the moment :P) and I am satisfied. And also to record an observation today. After writing the exam loads of people asked me how it went and almost all conversations were like this...
XYZ : So how did it go?
MG: Brilliant! I am quite happy with the results!
XYZ : Haha! No seriously, tell me, how did it go?
MG : Uh.... I just did! It went very well!!!
XYZ : Oh.. uh... er... I mean... congratulations!!!
MG : :-/
And this happened quite a few times.... without me even mentioning my score... Why do people find it so hard to believe it when I say I did well? Is it because they think I am dumb and can't handle a GRE or because they are just so used to the usual... "Yeah... it went ok... could've done better..." I certainly hope it wasn't the former! *indignant look*
And another something...
XYZ : So which universities will you be applying to?
MG : *names a few ivy league universities and more*
XYZ : Uh... I asked you where you will be applying... I did not ask you to list the top 5! So seriously... tell me... where you applying? *eager look*
MG : :-/
I know I probably won't get into any of the Ivy League, but doesn't mean I am not capable! :(
Anyways, screw it... what matters is that I gave my all, and I am going to disregard what anyone says about my scores or ambitions and I am going to feel good about myself and I am going to take this rare opportunity to give myself a pat on the back and say....
I rock!!!! :D :P for now ;)
P.S. I couldn't have gotten through this stressful period if it hadn't been for the constant support I got from home and from clueless... you guys rock more than I do!!! :D ;)
