I’ve completed the GMAT exam and am submitting my MBA applications in January. In January, I am also moving on up to my new role at Canon as Internet Marketing Analyst in the camera division – Marketing and Cameras and Photography? I’m not sure that there could be a more perfect job for me. I’ve also achieved my savings target this year, on track for homebuying in the near future. I also have the best lover, friends, and family in the whole world – they are irreplaceable. Best of all, I have my amazing God, who takes care of me year after year even when I don’t deserve it. 2012 was a beautiful year – a lot of hard work that manifested itself in the way of ‘fruits’ in this last month and I am grateful more than anything.
Here’s to LOVE, HAPPINESS, HEALTH, AND SUCCESS in 2013 and beyond!
My GMAT exam is at noon tomorrow. I rocked 4 practice exams and flunked 2. I don’t know how to feel. Tomorrow could be doom’s day if I end up with a tough exam, so I am hoping for a miracle. If I don’t get the score that I want, I will write the exam again in January. Keep going is all.
I still have good news to share though, but I might just save it for the new year when I take the time to write all about my beautiful 2012.
I’ve wanted to post a photo of the Grand Canyon since my visit last November but don’t know why I never got around to it. Maybe because I was more caught up with Vegas shots at the time. Nonetheless, here it is: nothing less than majestic.
Having a quick breakfast and then starting my second last practice exam at noon. I plan on writing one more the week before the real exam, hoping that by the time I get to the real exam, it feels just like another practice exam. My GMAT journey is almost over – crossing my fingers.
I took a photo of my art / photography / Etsy desk and my business / work / study desk because the difference is hilarious. My office in my future house is going to be one big oxymoron of art and business, both of which I absolutely love. These were shot quickly with my iPhone so pardon the quality. :)
Today I wrote my 6th GMAT practice exam and scored 630. It’s really a 620 though because I reached for the calculator for salvation for two questions where I was desperate and running out of time, that I would’ve otherwise gotten wrong.
I’m slowly but surely getting sucked in by Mad Men. The show is set in the 1960s, which is one of my favourite eras as far as visual style, music, and fashion, and that, along with the historical authenticity of the show have been a big draw. Love it!
I never used to be a TV show junky and I’m uncertain of the trigger, but in the last year, I’ve gotten hooked on Dexter, American Horror Story, The Walking Dead, 666 Park Avenue, and Breaking Bad, all of which come from a similar genre – a little bit on the darker side. American Horror Story, though, is by far my favourite – so incredibly twisted and filled with mental anguish. I can’t quite explain exactly what intrigues me about it and attracts me to it but the show makes you feel grotesquely uncomfortable and yet that’s precisely the appeal. It manages to radiate such chaotic emotion and turmoil. The best explanation is probably my general rule of thumb: if something (whether it be a show / film / song / literature, etc.) can evoke emotion of any type, I immediately appreciate. And sometimes, darker emotion trumps the others.
I am entering busy season at my Etsy Shop – I received 5 orders today. It makes me happy but anxious at the same time because December is going to be chaotic in every way possible and Etsy orders are but a drop in the bucket.
