A mixed bag

Lets start with spring break and the fun that we had. A lot of food and liquid was consumed throughout the week, games were played and a beautiful day of kayaking ensued. The weather was beautiful and although Paula Dean’s restaurant was a bit of a disappointment, Savannah itself was amazing. I almost think that I could live there. I think it was a great trip for my final spring break. I couldn’t have asked for more.

Now I’m back in school. Down to about¬† 6 weeks. It is really hard to get motivated to do work! All of my friends are having the same problem. Group meetings have become 15 min long, discussion has come to a halt in classes because people aren’t taking the time to read anything any more and I’m pretty sure most people’s brains have shut down. That said I’m starting to really appreciate what I have been able to learn and the opportunities I have had while in business school.¬† The other day an investment banker came in and talked to us about the current state of the economy. A lot of the conversation was over my head but it was really great to hear the perspective of someone that had so much knowledge and experience in the area. I could think of at least a dozen people who would have liked to listen to this talk but it was an opportunity they don’t get. This wasn’t the first experience of this, just the most recent. There are time when we all complain about having to go to this event, or listen to this speaker, but really all of the opportunities we have been given are amazing. The resources we have had over the past two years are things we never would have gotten if we hadn’t gone back for our MBAs and I think that it is important sometimes to sit back a realize these things. It makes you appreciate the choices you have made and the time you have spent to further your career.
