Thank you for using the timer!
We noticed you are actually not timing your practice. Click the START button first next time you use the timer.
There are many benefits to timing your practice, including:
2) get a life after a year of preparation for b-school (GMAT classes, applications, school visits, etc.)
These are my top two as well, except my #1 is get re-serious (if I am allowed to create a word) about going to the gym. I used to work out 5-6 times per week, but since I started writing essays that has dropped to about 2-3 times per week.
1. Start dressing better. I work for a construction company, so my typical attire is a polo, jeans, and sneakers. Since I will only be 22 at matriculation, I would like to start dressing better so that I will look more professional...should help with the age thing.
2. Enjoy friends and family while I'm still local to them.
1. Hit the gym seriously. Started last month and going often enough, but had to take a break for Christmas holidays. Going back from tomorrow. I'd be happy to lift my own weight at bench press and jog for an hour without interruption. I also want to get back to my year 2005 pant size.
2. Be involved with charity (human rights), collect money.
3. Decide whether I want to do an MBA or become a Chartered Accountant. MBA pros: US/Asia exposure and career opportunities CA pros: Cost and part-time program If MBA, score 740+ at the GMAT, apply to H/S/W and INSEAD in R1. if CA, pass the first level of examination.
4. Read books. Both fiction and non-fiction. Some in German (my German skills have become a bit rusty and I am thinking of applying to the Lauder Institute at Wharton).
5. See Movies (classics on DVD) and go to the cinema on a regular basis.
6. Learn how to maintain a car. Change a wheel/oil, that sort of things.
7. Take part to the annual river swim here in my city: 2000m and collect money for charity.
8. Take surf lessons.
9. Visit Rome.
10. Learn about food and wine. Cook meals and bake cakes to share with people I like.
1. Call my parents more often. 2. Keep working out 6 days a week - learn when to take a break. 3. Be nice. 4. Keep GMAT Club honest, refreshing and useful. Be nicer to members who piss me off. 5. Build a life outside of GMAT Club.
Yes, stupid car that hit me. I have a torn ligament, and those don't heal themselves. But sometimes this particular injury doesn't really bother people. I thought it wasn't bothering me, but that was when I was in school and the most rigorous thing I ever did was type and highlight. But since break, I've been doing crazy stuff like peeling potatoes and scraping snow off my car. That stuff hurts, and I think hurting sucks. So I'm pretty much thinking surgery is in order. I need to talk to the surgeon and find out more, of course. And it will probably have to wait until summer as I will be casted like I'm begging for alms (right hand, of course) for about a month. I guess I will try to slip it in between finals and internship....assuming I get one.
You all will be happy to know that I saw a lawyer. They know who the owner of the car is and that person has insurance. My insurance covered most of it, but I think they should at least pick up the slack. Stupid.
