|11:43 am - Good vibrations|
I am taking the GRE this afternoon, at 1:30, and I would like to harness the awesome power of my f-list -- all of you think REALLY POSITIVE THOUGHTS at me this afternoon, will you?
I will report back later.
I have been waiting to post about the cervical dysplasia until I get back the biopsy results -- but preliminary news is Very Good! The lesion wasn't there when my doctor looked. We'll know for certain once we get the cytology results back, though.
[Edited to add: Y'all must have been working some serious voodoo out there! Initial results ARE IN: 750 Verbal, 730 Quantitative! I'll hear about the essay section in a couple weeks.
w00t! Again I say: w00t!
My plan is to go back to grad school in the fall, at CUNY, in sociology, with the goal being to study People Like Us. Which is to say: Geeks, freaks, polyamorists, netizens, all that sort of thing. More as that develops! Application is due Feb 1st, I should hear in, um, I think April? Sometime around then.]

**sends positive thoughts eastward**
So I guess you're probably taking the GRE because you have plans to go to grad school? As opposed to, say, for the sheer fun of it? What are you planning to study?
I will send positive energy on both issues, and await the good news on both!

You're probably halfway through the quants while I'm typing this, but I hope everything is going well. Consider a beam of optimism to be emanating from my main deflector dish.
Hey, congrats on the GRE-conquering! The grad school plans sound really cool -- HP fandom in particular needs a soc thesis or ten.
Gee remember the old days when you waited WEEKS for the test scores? Woohoo for otherwise_nyc and her GIANT BRAIN!!!!
And woohoo for the preliminary good results on the dysplasia. My new year's resolution...no friends being diagnosed with anything bad, okay, you all hear that? Remember it.
I tried posting this earlier, but seems to have gotten eaten.
Congrats on the exam results! I sent an e-mail to the account you suggested over at C's blog. Did you get it? Looking forward to catching up with you and and F. Take care, Robert
