So I took the GREs the other day. I prepped for probably not as long as I should have, and took them anyways. I got my score on the multiple choice immediately, which was abysmal. 1000 out of 1600. My writing section, however, needed to be sent in and graded separately, of course. So I got it back the other day, pretty aware that my writing skills are already very high up there (except at 10am on my only day off). I received a PERFECT score on the writing section. The grades are done on a .5 scale, starting at 6.0-1.0. Six is the highest. I got a 6.0. Not a 5.5, not a 5.0, a 6.0. Absolutely perfect. That means two people both read my paper, and both thought it was perfect. To me, that's what I'm most proud of. That's the most challenging section, and I did perfect. I'm quite proud of that, though intensely pissed that I still have to take the ENTIRE THING over again. Whateverrrrrrrrrrrrrr

In other news, I've been working a lot. Beyond the fulltime, when combining both jobs. Body Shop hired me for 10 hours a week, and I'm working 25 next week. That's two and a half times what I signed up for. But it's money, and who am I to say no? Besides, it'll drop back to normal once the holidays are over. And the Body Shop has been good, my boss is nice, co-workers are cool. Plus I get samples and discounts. I've also been using makeup more, and having fun with it. It really is like painting! Haha

And my body is looking better, toning and firming it up. It's nice to physically start to see the difference, losing weight can be a powerful motivator. Once I hit my target in another 20lbs, I'm getting that tattoo. Everyone who hears about it grins, shakes their head, and goes "That's weird, but that's so you, Alix". Good to know I don't let people down ;)

Really, that's about it... Peace Corps stuff came today, so I'm going to fill that out and send it all back, then see what happens. Gotta finish sending out grad school stuff, since that's my backup, and I refuse to work at Walden beyond a year. Dunno what else to report though. It's snowing, and I'm feeling cynical. Nothing new, haha.
