Somebody on one of the forums I post on was asking for tips regarding the GRE. So I thought I would offer up some advice based on how the GRE's went for me when I was getting ready for graduate school.
And that's when it occured to me that I took the GRE's in 1996. And that 1996 is almost a decade ago.
It's weird how easy I respond "eight years" when asked how long my wife and I have been married, or how natural it is to say I graduated high school in 1993, and how neither of these comments ever make me feel old.
But thinking that I was preparing for graduate school a decade ago? That I'll be coming up on my ten year college reunion in 18 months? Man, that just isn't cool. Not at all.
