Tonight, I spent hours typing in vocabulary words and definitions into an online flashcard generator. I entered 430 cards (428 words--two were repeats with different parts of speech and meanings) total, all from the vocabulary lists in one of my review books. I have a set of flashcards that I purchases which have a lot of the same words, but some new ones; they're great for vocab work on the train, but I need to enter in the novel ones into the generator soon. And then I have an entire other prep book that I haven't even opened yet.
That's right, kids. I'll be taking the GRE in February using a combination of methods from Kaplan, Princeton Review, and Barrons. I am unstoppable.
Well, I got 630/630 on my first, online practice test, which wasn't great. Next time I take an online one, I'll try to pay to get my essays graded. I hate not knowing how they're graded, so maybe I should see if anyone I know works for Kaplan GRE. I know how the SAT ones are scored, but I don't know how much that'll help me.
Anyway, I was typing in a definition, and I was supposed to type the word "fickle." Now, I was sitting in an awkward position; the only table I can work at is the dining room table, and that's mostly covered in menorah, candlesticks, and fish (singular). So I was on the sofa, lying down, computer on my knees and book between me and the computer. I think I strained all of the muscles in both hands trying to type all those cards in that position. But it was difficult, and I was, much too often, hitting adjacent keys while typing.
And so, I typed "fuckle" instead. And thus, a new curseword was born.
I have resolved to use this new curseword to discover its best usage. I'm way excited.
