I'm starting to study for the GREs! In someways, it feels silly to be preparing to go back to school at my age, but in another way, it feels liberating. I think I decided more than a year ago that I am quitting the practice of law, but I have yet to file for inactive status with the California State Bar. I have thought about doing the paperwork, but for some reason, I am hesitant to do it. Maybe because it feels so permanent? But when I think about studying something else and going back to school to do it, I get so excited! I am thinking of going for a masters in psychology, as I wrote a while back. Since I wrote about it back then, I have done really nothing about it. But I am finally getting to a point where I feel comfortable entrusting my little baby with a baby sitter. So today, we had a baby sitter come and play with little S while I cracked open my GRE prep book as I paddled away on our elliptical. I started with the vocabulary section because that is the one section I feel comfortable with. It is the last section that I need to study, but I am too intimidated to look at the math section. I don't know how I am going to re-learn all that I need to in order to take a standardized test! Maybe I have to take some prep course. Or teach myself on Kahn Academy. But either way, I am going to ace this damn thing and put myself on the right career path once and for all.
