A Falling Leaf

These days I try to study hard as the preparation of GRE. There are too things to study but I don’t get much time for that. So often I utilize the time when I travel by a rickshaw.

Today I was on the way to office and I was busy with the GRE word list. Suddenly a brown leaf fallen on my papers breaking my concentration. It was like the nature is protesting my avoidance to her. So I took the leaf in my bag and brought it to office.

Lastly now after taking a photograph I am going to publish it with few words.

GRE Preparation

I don’t understand why these type of words learning is necessary. They gave me few sheets of paper with thousands of unknown and peculiar words – amity, apogee, aplomb, affinity, ameliorate, abstinence, abase, copious, coiffure, carafe, caulk…

I never used these words and I don’t know if I’ll need to use them later. They asked me to memorize them! It’s really tough to learn something when you don’t get any reason to use them as everyday’s tools.

The maths part of GRE is interesting. It needs practice – thats all. But when they asked me about the words, I start see everything blurry. In last test of vocabulary I scored 15 out of 40. So poor! Because the highest scorer got 39.

Anyway, I am not worried. I believe in slow and steady process. I hope I’ll learn some techniques of memorizing the words. May be you also can help me with that. Do you have any suggestion?
