This is probably a ridiculous question....
« on: September 16, 2009, 03:24:23 PM »
but clearly, I'm starting to stress just a tiny bit about the 26th. I just noticed that my watch ticks... LOUDLY.
Is this likely to piss someone off so badly that they stab me with a pencil, or something? I'm pretty casual about
tests... but I'm sensing tensions could be high, in that room....

Pardon Johnny Cash.

If it really ticks that loudly, please use a different watch :)

I never noticed it before. It's fine when it's on my wrist, but just realized it's totally different when I take it off and set it on the desk.
Think I'm gonna have to get a new watch for the test - I would hate to throw someone else of their game, honestly.

Pardon Johnny Cash.

Though consider this, is it really that loud when you factor in other people's ticking watches and the sound of people scribbling on the test, breathing, and bubbling in answers?  There's a decent amount of other noises that may make the ticking watch really inconsequential.  I guess you're the only person who knows how loud it really is.

FYI, I would stab you if you sat next to me with that watch. So PLEASE use a different watch.

LOL - well, it's certainly not as bad as the snuffling/snorting/nose blowing of the chick who sat next
to me in the GMAT! More like a soft wall clock. A reassuring sound I've always liked. But just in case I
sit next to nooyyllib.... !

OMG something like that would have never crossed my mind (the stabbing part). You must be spazzing......just breathe  ;) !

 ;D  Seriously.  I knew I was losing it when I started thinking about how much I was going
to miss all of this studying...!

You will feel lost without the LSAT.

 ;)  You know, I think I really, really will!  I know this sounds absurd, but I reached a point about a month ago where I truly began to look FORWARD to studying, each day. I love the challenge of this test - the games, the time issues, the tricky stems... all of it. It's like having a great crossword puzzle (or logic game!) with coffee each day -- you know, if coffee lasts for 3+ hours.
I will actually feel lost, without the LSAT.
