thought i'd provide my opinion on a Friday to keep it light hearted around here. Please add other ones.

10. You've solved for the number of ways the letters GMAT can be rearranged (or are now doing it in your head)
9. When you hear "Pearson Vue" you start sweating.
8. When a pretty girl asked for your number recently, you told her your latest verbal and quantitative scores from a GMAT Prep exam. When you think shes mocking you by asking "Pardon me?", you lie and tell her the score was from a Kaplan test, which everyone knows grossly undervalue your true scoring capabilities.
7. Your dog now hates you.
6. You've either gained or lost 10 lbs.
5. You've alienated friends to study for the GMAT, then realize you don't need friends who can't solve mixture problems in under 1 minute, they'd only slow you down you say. Then, somehow, you solve for how much they'd slow you down. After solving you hope to see a similar problem on the real GMAT.
4. You count up in prime numbers to fall asleep.
3. You are still counting when you wake up.
2. You refer to people who scored a perfect 800 as the 'Others'.
1. You have a bumper sticker on your GMAT OG that reads "WWHHD" (What would HongHu do).

Another one for me is...
When someone present you with an argument, you automatically try to come up with an assumption. Then you try to weaken/strengthen the argument based on that assumption. If that person is your girlfriend, then you are often in trouble.

haha, I like these!

I've only been at it a month and notice that my brain tends to be constantly running through problems I either see here or in one of my books. I'll be sitting at breakfast trying to read the paper but my brain rather be thinking about permutations and combinations.

I imagine this is only going to get worse before it gets better!

By the way, am I the only one who actually enjoys this stuff? I feel like the questions are almost entertaining in a way and I love the idea of the GMAT being this huge challenge to conquer. maybe I'm weird but 4 weeks in and I still love it!
