A Time to Be Thankful

This week I want to list a few things that I’m thankful for, since it’s close to Thanksgiving.  As this week is a short week at OSU (and even shorter for some of you in the WPMBA program with optional classes), take a little bit of time to reflect on your quarter and things that you are thankful for.

I’m thankful for:

  • Being accepted in the WPMBA at Fisher.  This program has already been beneficial and the opportunities available are endless.  The people I have met, the classes I have taken and the information I have learned have all had an impact on me.
  • A great group for MBA 812.  A great group can make a project so much easier without the worry of a member not pulling their weight or being too overbearing.
  • A supportive husband, family, friends, and coworkers (and my grandma, who is my loyal blog reader.)  When participating in this or any other graduate program, having the support of your friends and family is crucial.  My support system helps me study, or knows when to leave me alone to study, and they understand I may not be able to hang out as much as I used too.
  • A flexible work schedule.  Because I work 1.5 hours away from campus, I’m usually leaving work early to head to class.  But with flexible time and the ability to do some of my work whenever I have computer access, I am grateful to be able to participate in the program and still work without stressing too much.

These are just a few things that I am thankful for.  As the quarter is winding down and final papers and examinations are right around the corner, take a few minutes and reflect on your quarter.  Thank those who have helped you throughout the quarter, whether it be group members, your professors, or your support system.   Happy Thanksgiving!
