For the past few weeks, I have been really looking forward to November 11th – the day I have no classes and no intentions of stepping foot on campus.  All that I, and most of my classmates, really want to do is catch my breath and get prepared for the last four CRAZY weeks of my first quarter at Fisher (during which we will have 4 Accounting Cases, 3 final papers, 3 final presentations, 4 daily assignments and 3 final exams – not to mention all of the reading that goes with those assignments…).  But, November 11th is more than just a vacation day, it’s Vetera
