So for all us R2, now that we're finally done with apps, what are you all doing with your time? It hit me on wednesday (not tuesday because I had homework due) that I really don't have that much stuff to do during the week. So trying to figure out a new list.

So far I:

Brought Guitar World Tour - Playing a whole lot of Jimmy Eats World and Hotel California.
Said I'm going to the gym - Said, because I keep forgeting my gym clothes (it must be a subconcious thing)
and cooked dinner, made soup, blah blah..

Anyone else in the same situation?

Ostensibly, I was working...

You could go visit all the sites in your city that you haven't visited yet. If things go as planned, you probably won't be in that city much longer...

After several months on laboring for GMAT, TOEFL, and the application its self, what better way to torture my self than yet another months of marathon studying? I'm taking my CFA Level 1 exam in June, so I'm signing my life away to CFA!

peaceyall I plan on doing the same thing! I grew up here but literally have not done anything when it comes to the touristy DC stuff - except go to museums.

On top of that, just.. reading, working out.. watching trash tv :).

Make sure you go to Pakistan and Lebanon BEFORE you go to Israel.

If you went to Israel first, you face intense questioning followed by deportation in Lebanon and Pakistan.....but if you hit Leb and Pak first, you will just get a few targeted questions by passport control at Ben Gurion Airport 8-)

I'm spending my time getting prepared to move! Figuring out what to sell, what to keep and what to trash.

I just threw out over 50 recordable CDs that date back to 1996! Maybe I should have asked if anyone wanted a copy of Windows 95?

I know one my boxes still has the NES system I got in 7th grade!

Wow! Its been a dream to visit Pakistan. I'd love to watch an India - Pak cricket match in Karachi/Lahore and be the only guy in Indian clothes! ;-)

But right now, the prospects look bleak. I don't think I would get a VISA. :(


Have a nice vacation!

PS: You might want to check this. It is an account of an Indian lady's Pakistani holiday.
