I was working with my teammate Logan this afternoon on an Accounting case study, and we both were scratching our heads over a certain problem. After some discussion, he found an important number in the case, I found a hint from our textbook, and together we were able to solve for the answer to the problem. My response, "Teamwork makes the dream work!" Logan: "You are a nerd. I wish we could take our final in groups." Ugh...

One of my to-do's when I first arrived on campus was finding the local grocery store. I am generally a lunch-packer, so I needed to purchase groceries for my peanut butter and jelly, baby carrot, yogurt, and teddy graham packed lunch. (Yes, my lunch in grad school is eerily similar to what my mom packed for me during grade school. I'm only missing the Dunkaroos, but those are pretty hard to find.)Over time, I have found a few options for grocery shopping.

3 midterms, 1 paper, several group projects, 2 speeches, various interviews, plus normal everyday coursework. Sound familiar? If your work load looks anything like mine, this pretty much sums up your next two weeks. Major yikes. That doesn't even include other priorities like keeping up with email, checking the Hub, Fisher Connect, My Fisher, Carmen, and other websites, keeping tabs on internship opportunities, going to the gym, putting in hours at work, making time for a significant other, etc., etc. That reminds me...

If you haven't yet read Stacey Schroeder's Post about NAWMBA, make sure you check it out! In addition to her summary of the high points, here are a few of my own insights from the conference this past weekend...1. You are at an advantage because you attend Fisher. The conference included a variety of sessions and events throughout both days, as well as a career fair on Saturday.
