I reactivated my facebook this week. I knew I would probably regret this decision (and Ian reminded me of this), but I did it anyway. I find facebook upsetting for a number of reasons, specifically, it serves as a ridiculous reminder that some people I once considered good friends don't want to talk to me anymore. One friend from high school emailed me a little while back and I responded saying that I was glad to hear from her and start talking to people again (because, to be fair, I fell off the planet for a while). She never wrote back. This sounds kind of petty and I can't really figure out where this feeling stems from, since I am fairly antisocial. I guess I just like to know that on some level, people still like me even if we don't talk a whole lot.
I've also started studying for the GRE, and I have to say that REA's study guide has proved the most useful. I started out with Kaplan, only to learn that it was about as useless as an umbrella in the sahara and just as condescending as Princeton review (which lead me to buy kaplan in the first place). The math is coming back to me fairly well, despite the fact that I haven't done any non-retail related math since AP calc. However, the retail math does actually help a lot in relation to the percentage problems. "I just sold a canvas print, that's a 5% bonus" or "I've sold $4900 in cameras and lenses this month and I'm at 6% service plans, how many more plans do I need to sell to hit my sales goals?"
In the meantime, enjoy a duck in the designated smoking area.
