I’m feeling like a goldfish these days. I think it took me 20 minutes just to get the goldfish pic in this post. It has been forever since I wrote here and I’ve been missing it. I have been doing lots of writing for other projects. I was in the middle of writing two admissions essays <INSERT: Nails on CHalkBoarD> when ThaT school decided to not accept prerequisites if they were more than 10 years old (even if they were part of a degree). So, I decided to apply to a school that didn’t require a GRE score. It took some time for me to recover from the realization of how much it would cost– in both time and money– to take those credits over. Mostly the money freaked me out but my dh is not so happy about the time. Off I go starting a prep course next week–to reopen my school options. Perhaps it is for the best. I haven’t had a challenge like this in a while. I used the goldfish as an illustration because I’ve become a rabid geek-fan of the BBC’s Sherlock. And everyone except the Holmes Boys are goldfish. Oh, but aren’t we so endearing and sentimental. And of course the Holmes boys would both get a perfect score on the GRE.
So, back to Sherlock. I would really love to have a ‘mind palace’ accessible to me during my high stakes standardized test. I took some pictures of my house and am going to try and overlay some of my study material on them. We shall see how that goes. I keep forgetting to write/ type on the pictures. I’ve really been squeeing over the props and decor on Sherlock, specifically the black and white wallpapered/ spraypainted wall. That wall gets shot at in one of the episodes because Sherlock is bored. That is one of my favorite scenes.
