i have the task of informing the staff at the Void that it appears they are going to lose their domain name. the amount that i am looking forward to this, is like, not at all. This short tidbit will be followed up by a scathing tirade against DB Multimedia in the near future.
That’s not what i am feeling dumb though. That’s why i am feeling depressed yet indignant. I have been studying to take the GREs (?) and the vocabulary is killing me. I thought i had a pretty good grab-bag of fifty cent words, but, alas, apparently i don’t. Sitting there trying to define “qualms” was not one of the highlights of my life…i mean, i know what the word means, but to define it? There are a lot words like that actually – never questioned in a sentence, but not definable. Did you know that enervate means to reduce in vitality? This is one of those rare occurences where the French word trips you up.
I didn’t do as badly on the math section of the first practice GRE as i had expected. I bombed the verbal section though, mostly because i didn’t realize i was supposed to be choosing the antonym, not the synonym (you can laugh all you want). I still got a 410, which is average for people applying in business. I guess that’s a good sign…maybe. I think my math score was somewhere around 430, which is definitely improvable because i had forgotten all the vocabularly. This thing is costing me a fortune though. $150 some odd dollars for the test, $27 for the “Cracking it” book and another $8 for a used copy of seven old print versions (being shipped from thriftbooks.com whom will be approached to advertise in the Void – multitasking!).
Okay. i am sitting at reception all day, bored out off my wazoo, without MSN, listening to Jazz and surfing the internet when i should be working on the GRE. Fun stuff.
