the square root of the problem


I've spent the better part of the day trying to remember all the basic laws of algebra and geometry that I flushed from my mind fifteen years ago once I completed my math requirements in college. Funny thing, I used to be good at math. Now anything involving angles and pi and this cubed to the that is like a foreign language to me.

Tomorrow, however, I am scheduled to spend four hours in a testing facility taking the GRE. And I am not looking forward to it in the least. I'm confident on the verbal and writing portions - those are my strengths, my forte. But this bloody 'Quantitative Reasoning' is going to be the death of me.

I went to a Christmas party last night and had such a great time. Hosted by one of my coworkers from years ago, one of the few people I've managed to stay in touch with over the years. He's a puppeteer, his wife a teacher. Both wonderful, creative, brilliantly clever people. I've worked with J. off and on for years, so I've heard all of his crazy stories and knew his friends well through them. This was the first chance I'd had to actually meet the majority of them in person and it was like meeting people I'd known forever. It was a mellow evening rich with amazing conversation, lots of laughter, great music and the mingling of many kindred spirits. It's the best time I've had in a very, very long time.

Sigh...

I suppose I should stop procrastinating and get back to my study guide.

Wish me luck tomorrow.
