Checking things off

I finally stared my fear of math in the face and took the GRE.  I won’t reveal my score, but let’s just say that I did as well as I thought I would, no better and no worse. 

Next step on my to do list for graduate school is to write the writing sample.  I wrote about four pages last week and have a pretty thorough outline.  I do not expect to have much difficulty finishing the first draft by the end of this week. 

The one problem that I keep encountering is putting too much extra history in the paper that is supposed to be a historiographical paper.  I need to restrain myself from adding too much detail about the Haitian Revolution itself, which is not the focus of the paper.
