Seeing as I'm sure you missed me terribly while I was gone I thought I'd give you all a present. Rather than sending a postcard or getting you some cheesy present from the hotel gift shop, you get something infinitely better! 2 posts in 1 day {you're welcome}. In addition to presents, I also come bearing news. You may have noticed some blabber about school/prep classes/test/blah/blah recently. I'm in the midst of studying for the GMAT. And by studying, I mean I finally opened my review book and spent 16 hours this weekend in a prep class. What I thought would "refresh my memory" has only made me terrified that I have forgotten nearly everything {which quite honestly wasn't much} I learned in school. In fact, I've practiced so many sentence correction problems that I'm fairly certain that every sentence I type is incorrect grammar. You don't mind though, right? Gosh I hope not.


Basically, I spent the day in a tiny classroom {with zero windows}, pouring over bad sentences {no one's idea of fun} and analyzing {absurd} critical reasoning questions. But sitting in class did afford me the advantage of jeans. So ta-da. Casual Liz rears her slightly blonder head. Stay tuned for Saturday's equally casual outfit tomorrow. Until then.

Pin It!

  7. Don't sweat the GMAT. I crammed for the GRE over three weeks and did just fine when I took the test. Definitely study, but don't freak out about it. The adrenaline kicks in while taking the test and you're just able to focus and think clearly. Study terms and math, do a little every day and you'll be just fine. When is the test anyway?

  9. Good luck with the GMAT. The essay is the part I struggled with the most. Writing about some random topic is not my cup of tea. Don't they know I am an accountant?!

  10. You're one step ahead of me. I don't even try to use correct grammar on my blog.

  14. Oh girl, don't stress about the grammar in this blog! One of my favorite things about your blog is how you seem to write the way I imagine you talk. It is light and conversational. I love it. Good luck with the exam!

  17. Thanks Melanie! Hopefully the studying will pay off and I would definitely love a bit of test day adrenaline/luck. I haven't schedule the exact date - but about a month from now. Cross your fingers!

  18. I love this more-casual Liz outfit :) The jeans and loafers especially are so fun!

  19. Yeah - I haven't really studied much for the writing. They say that is the least important? Plus I'm fairly certain I can bs enough to get an average score.
