Life is good again

June 22, 2006
Well, reading my old posts I realized that it’s been a while without any positive post from me. I find that a little disturbing, since I am a very positive and energetic person, and the last weeks have just been really rough.

Today, I am flying to my hometown, Barranquilla, where my parents and childhood friends live. I think that it’s pretty nice to see them all, since I haven’t been around for the last six months, and a little bit of parents love is always necessary. I will also be also visiting all my old doctors, so they can check me out and see what’s been wrong with me.

These last few days I haven’t studied as much I would like (gifts shopping). I am just about to finish chapter 5 of my algebra book, and I hope I can work in at least one chapter in Barranquilla... What I can really tell, is that for all of you guys out there who have problems with algebra this is just the perfect book to undust (is this actually a verb?) Math... Anyway, I know that next week, a lot of study sessions will come back since I am pretty excited and motivated again.

There is always sun behind the gray clouds =)

Still Sick

June 12, 2006
As I said in my previous post, nothing in life can be perfect, but right now is ridiculous how bad I’ve been feeling...

After my terrible cold, I had to use antibiotics, they really helped me with it, but now, they just damaged my poor stomach very much. Now I am sick, but from my stomach, the worst part is that I’ve been feeling really weak and of course I haven’t been able to study... this is just so depressing... the worst part is that the last few days some of the universities that I really want to go to, imparted conferences in Bogotá, and I attended all of them, since those opportunities are not frequent... Well, the thing is that I’ve been really excited about my master studies and all that, but without a chance to study for the GMAT in the last month... well my moral is on the floor.

I really hope I can get better soon, because I really want to nail this test =)

Nothing in life can be perfect

June 05, 2006
I know the name of this entry might sound kind of sad of pessimistic, but the thing is that after all things started to go better at the office and I got time to study... I got really sick, I had problems with a horrible flu and I even had to go to the hospital. =(

Today, it’s been the first day that I’ve been feeling better. I couldn’t study much for two weeks; in this amount of time I have only been able to study two chapters of my algebra book, one about polynomials and the other one factoring. What I love about this book is that everything is well explained.

This weekend I started to think about the possibility of rescheduling my test. It will all depend on how much I can study this month... We’ll see.
