I wake up this morning with an unsettled stomach from last night. (Happy Birthday, Patrick!) Yesterday was a great day and we got a lot of stuff done. I still have an 8-10 page paper to write that I haven't yet started, but we made a lot of progress in planning out things that need to be done between now and graduation.
Watching a New York Knicks game (NYC) This will be done Wednesday by leaving immediately after a meeting to catch the 4:24 Metro-North train to New York. Go Cavs!Read More
Tonight was the Academy Awards. And tonight, eight handsome gentlemen cooked dinner for me for $25. At the GSE Date Auction a couple weeks ago, a number of us girls pooled our money together to bid on these gents, who had put themselves up for auction. Nakedness and gourmet meals were promised. In the end, Chris baked us his mother's famous lasagna with Jose as active sous-chef, and Craig did the dishes. The other guys kept us company. There was no nakedness. But there was chocolate fondue from a fountain. Thanks again everybody for a fun evening!Read More
A good friend of mine from college has recently moved to the greater New Haven area, so we've been able to hang out regularly for the first time since undergrad. In doing so, I've become a bit more conscious of how easy it is to run into fellow SOM students while hanging out at the usual haunts in New Haven. For example, tonight when all we did was go and grab a bite to eat, we ran into Luis (who lives in my building) while walking to the car, then ran into a couple other SOMers at the restaurant.Read More
We are back in school for Spring Semester, and I have had four days of classes. Day 1 was exciting - I could hardly sleep the night before. It was so great to see everyone and ask "how was your trip? where did you go?" and hear about who threw up on the bus (always the most fascinating gossip). Day 2 I had done some homework, and was starting to feel busy. Day 3 I realized that I had already whiffed on several obligations and was beginning to feel the crunch: I woke up early to do my homework for Operations Engine, and ended my day at 3am doing recruiting work.Read More
Well, the final semester of SOM is here and the class of 2008 begins its march to graduation. It's come too quickly in my opinion, but what can you do but enjoy, have fun with friends, and soak it all in? For me, "having fun and soaking it all in" has been the motto to which I have aspired to during my time at SOM.Read More
I can't believe that my time at SOM is almost up. I knew that the time would pass quickly, but it flew even faster than I imagined. My last semester is about to begin, and I am really excited about my classes. Here is a list of the courses that I'm taking:Read More
The best part of a trip begins as soon as the first unexpected thing happens. For me, the fun began when the SkyEurope airline pilot came over the speakerphone and said he was diverting our flight into Bucharest's airport because of “weather reasons.” I was stunnned at the pilot’s ability (gall!) to land in the massive snowstorm. Visibility was less than 100 feet. The runway lights were covered under a foot-high blanket of snow. It took an hour to find a parking spot for our 737 and to get ladder trucks and buses to our location.Read More
I am feeling groovy.
It shouldn't be a surprise. We finished our last exam yesterday and today I find myself in my adopted hometown of New Orleans. Tonight, I will be celebrating the holiday season with old college buddies.Read More
It's 1:17am and I'm in the dungeon. Why am I here? I got here at 7:30pm, had dinner with friends shortly thereafter, killed about three hours talking, played Scrabulous on facebook, and had a deep philosophical discussion about racism and religion (as separate topics). And no... none of that had ANYTHING to do with class. But now that I've gotten that out of my system, I think I'll go ahead and redo my chunk of this Pricing Strategy assignment.Read More
