Mish the Mathlete.
No. That's a lie. I am not a Mathlete, but only wish my hair could look like Lindsay Lohan's hair did in Mean Girls when she was in the Mathletes club in the movie. I don't know if I can accurately add and subtract in my head (without the use of my fingers). Good news ladies and gentleman! I am officially starting to study for the GMAT. I just purchased a GMAT Math book off Amazon.com. Translation: If I am not too chicken to actually re-learn math, then I may dabble in a bit of studying while I'm laying out on my roof this summer wearing my new J Crew silk tunic like a dork and then deal with the GMAT after the wedding. I must sound like the most non committal person ever as far as business school is concerned. I really want to go to business school, but it's something that I obviously need to be ready to do 100% (or more like 115% percent when you add in my valuable workout and weekend time), but I'm not sure how I'll fit this in with a full time job. A lot of people I know did this scheduling with work life balance (kind of) and it worked for them. If there is one thing I can do, it's schedule and plan. Either way, I figure knowing more math can't hurt, especially since I'm going to start managing more budgets at work.
Plus, I like to think I fit the "back to school" person, since I (as I discussed with my Maid of Honor, Jolyn, today) wore a yellow backpack to work today like a total geek. I have also included a nice little snapshot of my backpack today for evidence. Yep, it's the same backpack that I carried around at New Trier high school. You better believe it. I don't mean to sound like my mother, but I guess it certainly is harder to be a woman since we are always thinking about when we are going to have children (well most of us, anyways). I haven't really crossed that bridge yet, and I guess the timeline I live by will need to be contingent upon this fact. Can life just not be stressful for 30 seconds? A girl can dream. Wish me luck! If you know math, CALL ME. I need your help.
