Right in the corner of the Shell Gas Station on Lane (next to Noodles & Company) there is a brightly colored "cart" that looks like it doesn't belong in a gas station parking lot. If you've noticed this before, then you would not be wrong in doing a double-take. This big trailer parked in the gas station lot is home of some excellent Colombian/South American food, believe it or not. While it doesn't look like much from the outside, the food made on the inside is DELICIOUS.

In keeping with the "end of the first year" theme from 2 weeks ago (stay tuned for another bonus blog this week, since it has been 2 weeks since my last blog), I decided to reflect on a comment I received today. I opened my email from the weekend and in one them was the comment (directed at me), "I expected more from you." Of course, I'm not going to go on and say who said it or even the situation surrounding the comment because it really doesn't matter. The fact is, that comment really stung.

When I first started graduate school, I thought it would be a lot like undergrad, where you met a few people that you liked in classes, were maybe in a few groups together, but at the end of the day, we would all go home and hang out with our friends from either back home or from undergrad. Of course, I couldn't be more wrong. This year has been quite the opposite, in fact.

Last week I had a little bit of anxiety, to say the least and believe it or not, it was not because of Heneman's 865 midterm exam, but rather because I knew my first 5k was coming up today. I ran extra on the treadmill this week, thinking that any little bit of extra running I could do would help and I really watched the caloric intake. However, nothing matched the anxiety of this morning. I want everyone to understand my anxiety by saying, that I'm not a runner. I kind of was in high school (purely for tennis), but that was it.

Two Fridays ago was the first HR Summit held by GHRA (the professional development committee) and I have to say, kudos to them. It was held in the Fawcett Center from noon to four and people from all of Fisher was invited (although it was mostly HR students) as well as HR professionals from around Columbus.Over lunch we had the opportunity to talk to everyone at the table. It was actually nice to be able to talk to one of the second years that I had never formally met before as well as a professional consultant, who had worked in HR for about ten years before starting his own consulting firm.
