About this GRE business.
I feel that you, my dedicated readership, deserves an update on my attempt to study for the GRE. Also I want to embarrass myself more via photos.

You were expecting excitement? Come on, give me a clue. Stop it with the blank stare.
What? Why are you shaking y0ur head like that? OK, I give up. Let’s just look at this one.
Oh my g… What the hell is this?!?!
OK. No big deal. Let me look through my notes, see how this is used in a problem.
