Well done!!! :)
I like to think of the GRE as a person being filmed in the first person, and the only thing it sees before being pummeled is my fist flying towards it. I am sure if the scene was filmed in 3D, it would increase the effect. Nothing drives the point home like a punch filmed in 3D. I’m pretty sure that the paper glasses would come off after the audience cowered away from the imaginary fist.
I was confident I would punch the GRE in the face, and am pleased to see that I did for the most part.
ugh, I am so sad for you guys about this, and for us fans! from what I know of you and Kevin, it is impossible that you were intentionally condescending or rude, you are wonderful guys and I am sorry about this. hugs to all of you!!! xoxoxoxoxo
Thank you Jules, this is an unfortunate situation that caught all of us off guard. There may be some silver lining though, it frees up Tuesdays for activities. There has been talk of returning to “Movie Tuesdays” since a local theater offers $5 tickets on Tuesdays. I am sure we’ll figure something out.
So sorry, men, but chin up: this sounds like a conspiracy with the real goal of breaking up a monopoly of intelligence. I remain confident in your status as gentlemen. ;)
I appreciate your confidence in my gentlemanly demeanor and that of my teammates, I never felt that was in question. We’ve thrown around several theories since last night, but I think that breaking the monopoly had something to do with it. Since we regularly won or placed, we received gift certificates on a regular basis ranging from $15 to $50. When five guys routinely win the $50 prize, it usually covers the entire tab. My guess is management didn’t like us since they weren’t making any money on us and a single complaint was all the ammunition necessary to exile us.
Dan: I hope you are on the mend soon. Kevin: please please wear the outfit!!!
Feel better thanks. Just needed some sleep, tea, and Aleve. Kevin did wear the outfit.
BUENA SUERTE DAN!! I have all the confidence in the world in you. No worries, my friend. You will rock this.
I ran through three separate practice tests. Strangely enough, the quantitative material I do best at is the Geometry section. I took Geometry as a freshman…in high school (14 years ago.) Explain that ish… I had to recall some of the material, like the quadratic formula.
The verbal stuff is more of a crap shoot. I think the biggest challenge will be maintain focus so I don’t make silly mistakes because I didn’t read carefully enough.
But DAN! You are 730 for 730 in awesomest guy of the day. (Two years. See what I did there?)
You’re setting a high standard for my awesomeness, I am not sure how I can sustain such a streak. On the other hand, if Cal Ripken Jr. can be awesome for 2632 consecutive games then I don’t see why I can’t be awesome for just as long. I am confident I can extend my awesomeness streak to day 731, then to day 732 and so on. Now that I think about it, I’d probably have an outstanding “Did something selfless/honorable/kind for someone else streak.” That streak would be close to Cal’s 2632 consecutive games played streak. Damn near untouchable.
but Dan! you’re totally amazing, so there’s that. I am hoping to get out to campus in the next couple of weeks, I’ll try to get a packet of info for you on the program there. hugs!! xoxoxoxo
Your imaginary hug is appreciated. This statistic warrants a “this man needs a hug” kind of response. Like any streak, its bound to end at some point. Just have to do what I do and it will happen. The grad school information would be helpful, especially since I am taking the GRE Tuesday.
Fight the power!!
Fighting to purge the world of arrogance would be a worthy yet overwhelming battle, like trying to end world poverty. Certainly the world could do with less arrogance (and less poverty for that matter) but the mind-blowing quantities that exist ensure a complicated and difficult solution. If everyone contributed a minute effort to stamp out arrogance, the abundance of arrogance would diminish and that’s progress. Indeed, that seems to be the most effective way to address such an issue.
The poverty analogy works too in that simply destroying the source (like deposing a jerk face arrogant dictator in an impoverished nation) doesn’t solve the problem. Poverty will still exist. Should “That guy” disappear from my world (meaning he exits my life as quickly as he entered it) arrogance doesn’t vanish. It will still be there. It’s an issue bigger than one individual.
Is the issue worth fighting? Yes, but you need to pick your spots, like I had to today…
hahaha excellent example!
Indeed, much can be learned from Indiana Jones. My favorite is that releasing the power of God will destroy the wicked…or the people who don’t turn around and shut their eyes.
Your words are beautifully chosen, and it is my hope to see you achieve both what you want and need, personally and professionally. You deserve many great things. :)
Your sentiment is appreciated. I have received similar sentiments from many of my peers. I will admit that I have focused on my volunteer duties to the point that I may have lost some perspective on the big picture. I do think taking a step back and re-examining things will help.
you are pretty fantastic, Dan!! I fully believe you will fulfill your dreams. xoxoxoxo
I love so much that the internet has fallen in love with Jennifer Lawrence, she seems fantastic. the boy from Billy Elliot also seems awesome. I should also point out that you are awesome! xoxoxoxo
It does appear that Jennifer Lawrence is everywhere and I would expect that for the star of a movie who had the third best opening weekend in history. Landing a role in a movie like The Hunger Games will do that for someone. She seems pretty cool and goofy to me, so I hope that initial impression isn’t ruined by scandalous nonsense.
Also, thank you for your continued support of my awesomeness. Right now I find myself thinking “I need a hug” frequently, and your imaginary internet hugs do help. I can best describe the feeling as having a poster of myself, looking distraught, with the caption “This man needs a hug” at the foot of the poster. These things would be everywhere in my imaginary world, like propaganda posters from WWII.
Question, in the back left: Sir, could we have a guarantee that future tumblr sabbaticals will be scratched from the agenda? I think we’re all looking for a little hope. This is it. Stay with us! :) (Also HUZZAH!)
Well, I don’t want to say never. That said, I do think that my tumblr time benefits me more often than not, so I anticipate that another one won’t happen for some time. I think you all can expect me to be posting regularly to a standard of quality that I’ve established over the past few months.
You’ve been missed, dude. I’m so glad that you’re back. Hello.
I am so happy to read this!! you’ve been missed. welcome back!! xoxoxoxo
I am glad that you’ve missed my stuff, I do what I can. Like I said before, working on this stuff keeps me sharp. I did purchase Mass Effect 3, much like Kevin, although I don’t plan on playing it at any great length any time soon. That is good news for all of you, because a game like that has a tendency to occupy all of your waking hours. I see tumblr as a way to be productive, a way to practice skills that I want to highlight as I pursue my career path.
“After some time away, I am pleased to report I will resume my regular posts. I found that while away from tumblr, I became distracted by things that I didn’t feel were productive. My tumblr posts allow me to write everyday, which is something I wish to do and enjoy. It was one of those instances where I found the grass wasn’t greener as I shifted my focus. While finding work remains the first priority, I feel that the rest of me works better when I am practicing my writing craft on a daily basis. I am glad to be back and hope you are as well, and I am looking forward to sharing what I know and love with all of you again. I will be happy to answer any questions.”
