I AM SO OVER IT!!!

My goal is to finish two Haas short answers tonight: accomplishment & innovative idea.

But...drinking wine and nosing around the forums aren't conducive to that.

I truly enjoyed writing mine. It reminded me that I am not only a number on a offical score report.

Great exercise that has really gavelnized my b-school efforts and focus.

zakk, do I have to take you out for coffee and give you some pills? In some ways I'm very glad I went through this exercise, as I understand myself much better now. But on the other hand, the stress is definitely getting to me physically. I can't wait to be done with Stanford/UCLA next week, then Haas the week after. Kellogg hopefully leisurely in December.

Am I the only one who thinks every sentence of Zakk's was filled with sarcasm??

or has my essay writing made me dig deeper and find out hidden meanings in apparently simple sentences.

I am on my number 257th revisions of one chicago essay

I am probably the only one. who wrote 6.yes..6 separate essays for the chicago.. whose shoes u want to be question
I think tomorrow I will earn salvation...

I wrote 2, decided for the first... Sending the whole package tomorrow! I'm so tired of the first application... Man I just think this Power Point (it turned out I'm sending pdf!) presentation was so time consuming, all the time making changes...

Regarding Zakk he's a "writer guy", I remember that from his GMAT sharing experience, so I understand what he's telling us. He's the one with the tarter sauce, hehehehehe!

Honestly, even though exhausting I am really getting to know myself at a level I never thought I could. I remember talking to a Stanford adcom staff, and shed said: "If you think you're 25% ready to apply it's time, because to whole MBA process (tests, application and the MBA itself) takes at least 3.5 years, and that's totally true.

Good luck all! I'm getting some sleep...
