Hey guys –
After a somewhat long hiatus I am finally back!
These past few weeks have been unbelievable: class workload AND work – we have been 60% to capacity at work, which makes for a very long and tiring week. No worries now – we have added another team member and we are in the process of hiring one more (uhu!!!!).
Let’s first catch up on Spring Break….
Lots of Fisher bloggers have been posting about their Spring Break adventures in the warm waters of Florida or by a pool somewhere. Well, I decided to be different. I spent Spring Break working on focus groups for a client in Dallas, TX and Chicago, IL. I had a marvelous time with great weather in Dallas followed by a lengthy adventure in the Windy City.
Since I was finishing up work in Chicago, I decided to spend a long weekend there right before the start of the quarter. This was my first touristic trip to Chicago. All of the other times I have been there were for business only. My husband and I had a great time acting goofy like all tourists do with their cameras. We got a CityPass deal which got us into five major Chicago attractions for $69 a piece and, the best part, let us cut the long lines at every stop. Of course, that made several people mad, but what a great investment.
FYI: CityPass deals are sold in all major cities. I would highly recommend that you check it out when traveling for pleasure. They even have an iPhone app for the CityPass that will help you learn more about it.
Back to school…
This is my third quarter on the WPMBA program. It goes by SO FAST!!! We will be studying Marketing and Finance this quarter: two of my favorite subjects and two that I have studied multiple times during my undergraduate programs. I am excited about meeting new people, networking with other professionals and being able to finally have an easy quarter!!
I will catch up with you soon enough. Now I need to go back to the books. Weekends are the only chance I have to catch up on my weekly school readings.
Happy Easter to all of you!
