Last night I saw that it had been four years since I took the GRE, the test that I thought would determine what I would do for the next few years. Taking this test opened a lot of doors for me, but now I can’t believe I was able to take this test, which helped me be accepted where I wanted to at attend and be one step closer to achieving my dream.
Of course, my dream was taken away from me, but I am now working hard to get it back. I’m happy I took this risk at the moment I did because I didn’t know what life had planned out for me. I don’t know if I would have taken it after my life took the turn it did just a few months later. I still would have wanted this, to go to grad school, I just don’t know if I would have been able to prepare for this since I’m having trouble concentrating .
But, after seeing this, I know what I’m capable of and don’t want to give up. I can, and will get there, and every day I am one step closer.
Also, I do not remember taking this test but knowing me, I know I was really nervous before and I was relieved after, when I wrote this.
