I have determined to take GRE in two months. For the last week, I have been learning new GRE words as it is my full-time job (Well, way more than full-time). Moreover, I stumbled upon a number of words that have similar postfix and word structure.
Besides the GRE glossaries, I have been listening to Eminem’s songs while I do quotidian running (Amazing performce on the Oscar, by the way). I organized those similar words on a sheet. Plus some beats that are borrowed from Eminem’s songs. All these ingredients are then combined together to produce my very first rap:
(The rap is elongated/prolonged/extended on Feb 17th, while I settlted the theme to be an “elevating music” rather than “elevator music”.)
** GRE-RAPPER ** by PWYQ Heyyyyyy, y' know, preparing the test makes me a RAPPER, who wears mottled goggle. Com' on, stop shuffle and hobble, shuttle here and settle. Let's gabble, not babble. First make some waffle, have some noodle and scribble some doodles. (Then sit on the saddle.) Don't boggle anymore. Mom will quibble, peers will giggle. You don't wanna dillydally all day long, yo, I mean, stay away from piddling, fiddling, diddling or dawdling. Those gonna cripple you. EN-FEE-BLE you! Wha(t)? You say this baffles ya? (Too many new jargons?) Feel befuddled? bemuddled? bepuzzled? Relax, we got more. You wobbled to the college, and stippled your brittle dreams. (Now what?) Every day, you're niggling at stats; whittling daily costs. Every term, you're squabbling over labs; tussling for mundane jobs. Now Howard is dribbling, while coward is wabbling. Damn. Roger is even smuggling weed, and girl is snuggling him. Mi amigo, if you tumble, you better swaddle yourself and snuffle in your tiny room. (Ha Ha) Don't you ever straggle! Otherwise you will struggle! Quit gobble, stop guttle, drop your guzzle. You've dabbled in so many areas in undergrad, Now you gotta peddle yourself to the goddamn postgrad. "Stop coddle me, meddle me, nettle me; please mettle me!" Shhh, muffle. Now go back to study. Wait, work harder, so (one day) I can hear a ripple of clappers. And see your dimples.
