I just registered for the GRE again. I’ve taken it, but it’s been more than five years, too long for universities to accept. I think it’s all a scam: kickbacks and so forth. Just like textbooks, a subject I’ll save for another time.
I have mixed feelings about the GRE. Sure, the test itself is painful and expensive, but the preparation doesn’t bother me all that much. Call me a masochist, but I actually enjoyed studying for it the last time. Instead of writing about these mixed feelings I’ve chosen a video to speak for me. Pixies “Wave of Mutilation,” UK Surf mix.
*Best bourbon to drink while studying for the GRE: none, unless you plan to conduct an experiment in altered states learning. But once you’re finished, anything will do. Try Old Rip Van Winkle.
