I Survived My GRE!

Feeling: Relieved
Weather: Neutral
Listening To: Caravan Palace- Suzy

Yeap. The dreaded exam is finally over @_@ I’ve been busy really preparing for it after my birthday, which explains the lack of updates even though I’ve been having loads of ideas for posts… but since now the exam is over I can get to work on them :D

Anyway, the Graduate Record Exam, or GRE has only one test centre in Malaysia- at the Faber Imperial Court which is basically in the Sheraton Imperial Hotel building. Mine was scheduled on 21st September 2011 at 1.30 p.m., but apparently when you’re ready you can start before the time, which is what I did. Am very thankful to dearest Louis for taking a day off (Despite Gamer’s Hideous rushing the opening of their new branch in 1 Utama) and accompanying me throughout :) And while I’m at it I’d also like to thank everyone who had wished me well and prayed for me.

The analytical writing or essay part didn’t give me too much trouble thankfully, but the quantitative reasoning or Maths and verbal reasoning or comprehension sections did a little, though it was thankfully again, nothing too overly major. I saw my unofficial scores, and I’m quite relieved to see that I am scoring within the average for my intended course, which is a good thing! Though the official scores will come out after 10th November 2011. I just hope that I have a satisfactory score that will gain me entry into Nanyang Technological University‘s Masters in Sociology program :)

Now that the GRE is out of the way, I’ve got to settle the references and get working on my personal statement and research details… and once the results are out I can mail my application in. Fingers crossed!

Oh, and after the GRE (And also as a sort of birthday present to myself) I treated myself to a Juicy Couture wallet- the New Scottie Embroidery Wallet in Nardels. Always loved this dog logo, and the wallet looks good (Despite it being pink, seriously- the other colours aren’t even that nice in real life), so meh! Also, trust me, it’s considerably affordable compared to other high-end designer brands, too. However, it’s not going to be my primary wallet, though, but my secondary wallet mainly for my loyalty cards. Nothing can replace my classic black leather Braun Buffel bifold (And ironically the Braun Buffel costs more, too) :P

Oh, Dad will be back tomorrow until the 2nd October. It’s been quite a while since he’s been back here due to work, so there most probably won’t be updates while he is, since we’ll all be going out quite often I think! XD
