Hey Y'all! How's it going? I am glad to say I've had a little down-time this week but it's about to get all hectic again. This post is just going to be really random so bear with me.
I'm preparing for the GMAT right now, and as a result I'm taking a prep course offered at work. I had to pay for it but it's not nearly as much as the Kaplan and Princeton Review, which I've come to find out are rip-offs! The guy that teaches my class (let's call him Dr. C) used to be a tutor for both programs (and he's a reader of the GMAT essay) and stopped teaching for them because he realized that they weren't doing it the right way. He now teaches ALL GMAT, GRE, and LSAT prep courses offered by universities in my city and has an amazing high score/pass rate....AS LONG AS YOU DO WHAT HE TELLS YOU!!!! See that's the catch....has Ms. May been doing what she's being told? Well, no not really. It's so hard to study 2-3 hours a night when you travel like I do and do all the other things I do. Ok, I know....enough with the excuses. If it's that important, I need to be disciplined and make the time. So, I've been doing better this week and have even gone ahead and registered for the test. NOVEMBER 25TH. Please pray for me! Dr. C says to take the test about 2-3 weeks after the class ends and my date of exam is about a month after...hey, what's one week? It was the only Saturday available! So again, please pray for me. The Verbal portion has never been a big issue, and I've always been good at math so it's just a matter of remebering concepts I haven't dealt with in a few years which I'm doing fairly well. What Dr. C teaches are tips and tricks to do well on the exam in the TIME allotted. If I had 10 hours to do the test I probably would do fantastically well but I don't...I just need to know how to answer the questions correctly AND quickly. Anyone who's taken the GMAT and has some advice.....give it, please.
So as I was practicing my math skills last night, this little poem came to me.....
THE MATH OF YOU AND ME
I am a fraction of you
You are a fraction of me
Together we form a whole
Sometimes you are the numerator
Other times you are the denominator
Either way, we form a whole
No matter how difficult
The problem may be
The quotient is always a whole
This is the math of you and me
Instead of doing math, THIS is what I was thinking about! God help me. LOL.
Below are some youtube videos of Jay and B in Nigeria. Not the best quality but hey.....what can you do.
Anyways, here are some new videos and a link to Ciara's new song which I just LOVE! Enjoy and have a good weekend folks.
Ciara - I Promise
NOTE: I had an appointment set up for 10.30 today. My appointment was a half hour late so I started working on this pos and had to stop when she arrived. The appointment just concluded after about an hour and a half and you guys.....I have never felt more blessed to be who I am and grateful to God for how He has made me and continues to make me. I cannot divulge anything about what just went down but all I can say is prejudice and discrimination are evil things. I have always made a conscious effort to be as open to different things and people as possible but today was truly a test of that for me - to have someone tell me something about themselves that they wouldn't ordinarily share with a stranger and to watch them wait with bated breath to see how I would react and treat them after I heard what they had to say. I think I did a good job and I promised them I would keep it confidential which is why I can't even divulge anything. Believe me, I want to but I can't. That's another test I'm giving myself - to see if I can truly keep my promise to that person. In honor of them, here is the quote of the day. The "he can't be any worse" part, I'm imagining Mark Twain said in a tongue in cheek way. The fact is we are ALL human beings and deserve to be treated fairly and without prejudice. Even though it is rarely ever that way, it is how it should be. God Bless.
“I have no race prejudice. I think I have no color prejudices or caste prejudices nor creed prejudices. Indeed, I know it. I can stand any society. All that I care to know is that a man is a human being -- that is enough for me; he can't be any worse.” - Mark Twain
