-I really need to make appointments to see my physician and dentist. Nothing serious, I just realized that I did not have my yearly check ups. Normally, I try to do them in June (around my bday), but pandemic.
-I enjoyed listening to Mariah Carey’s book, The Meaning of Mariah. I even received a marathoner badge from Audible. Does that count as running a marathon?
I’m still low key chuckling about her hair issues as a biracial child. “What I needed was a Black woman with some culture, some cream, and a damn comb.” Also, I did not know that her grandfather (or was it the great-grandfather) changed the family’s name from Nuñoz to Carey when he came to the States.
-Is it worth getting a costume for Halloween this year? What am I going to do? Dress up and hang out in the apt all night?
-Although I do not have to go into to work, I have been enjoying working in the office two days a week.
-I think that I’m going to get another iPad. Any recommendations? I have not had one since 2012. It’s been this long; maybe I don’t need one.
-I was thinking about applying to an education policy masters program but forgot that I registered to take the GRE for my application. I guess that I probably should “study” for the GRE since my exam is scheduled for Nov. 6. Technically, I do not have to take the exam because the program has waived the GRE for this admissions cycle. I’m a bit annoyed because I wanted to apply for the program last semester, but I could not take the GRE because there were no in-person test sites available in NYC. Also, I was extra annoyed because the school would not waive the GRE in my case . . . EVEN THOUGH I ALREADY HAVE A FREAKIN’ PHD!!! The school was like we do not except scores that are more than five years old. The first and only time I took the GRE was back in 2001. Did pretty well without having studied for it . . . maybe lightning will strike twice. No, I’d better cram for this one.
-Speaking of education. A few weeks ago, I was thinking that it was kind of weird that I do not have any college or grad school paraphernalia. One morning at around 5 am, I ordered sweatshirts from my alma maters.
-BTW, Diet Coke is the best for hangover recovery.
-I just stared watching ABC’s Fresh off the Boat again after 2-3 years. Man, the kids have gotten so big; Eddie is taller than damn dad.
What randomness have y’all be up to.
