The Life of the Unemployed Non-Student

I guess it's been a few weeks since I updated you on the intimacies of my life. I've been literally consumed in studies for the GRE, which I take on Monday, November 23rd at 8am. I'm very worried about getting in sufficient studying to get an acceptable score but I think I'll just have to do the best that I can. Ahhhh!
I do find time to go out with people and do fun things, like watching a particular TV drama on Thursday nights. I also make time to go running or ride the bike. I decided a few weeks ago that I wasn't going to study on Sundays because it's the Lord's day but also because it should be a day of rest. And you know, it's promised that if you make sacrifices of obedience, you will be blessed. I hope those blessings come in the form of a good score since I'm sacrificing study time! But as soon as my test is over, then I will just have to keep busy with finishing up my letter of intent and applications, and then finding a job. Sigh.
You know I never thought I'd get a higher degree (and maybe I still won't!), so it's pretty intimidating to me. I'm really nervous. But I know it will all work out for the best.
I went swing dancing for Halloween, dressed up like a punk witch thing. Did some modeling yesterday, and that was cool... something I always wanted to try.
Chris is in the process of applying to be a police officer with Mesa PD. Dad and Brian are coming down for Thanksgiving. London just received the Aaronic Priesthood, and Forrest is getting baptized next weekend. Awesome family stuff. And there's always the issue of what will happen in the future, and me always worrying about it and not knowing what to do. It's just not stuff I can afford to think about right now. I only have enough brains to finish the Reading Comprehension section for today.
Well, I need to get back to studyin'.... this test isn't going to pass itself!
