standardized tests should end with the SAT.

Tomorrow is the day of reckoning. I'm taking the GRE. I will not bore you with my tirade which proclaims the utter pointlessness of said exam, but let it be said that I am in no way looking forward to sitting in front of a computer screen for hours, feeling dumb because I have an English degree and can't tell the difference between probity and opprobium.

Opprobrium means disgrace caused by shameful behavior.
Probity means integrity.

At least I know they're both nouns?

Like I said, I'm not looking forward to it.
For now I'm listening to Girls and Boys by Ingrid Michaelson and getting some rest. I'm also debating setting my alarm for yoga early tomorrow-- because, let's face it, a couple of hours attempting to memorize more vocabulary is much less relaxing than a nice sun salutation in the morning.

  1. I hope it went well!! Seriously. Tests. Not a fan. My friends and I joke that we took the LSAT because there's math on the GRE :)
