I don't like the cold. I think MA's EPI presentation with his 3-year-old was the best ever, especially due to PC's tears. I'm going to Minneapolis this weekend (and missing sangria pitchers). I want to go shopping. I think people should speak up in class. I can't believe people are actually reading these posts. I hope my brain doesn't give up on me. I think that the picture on this page should be changed. So there. "And again, we talk about cultural differences..." -- Prof. Inks
As I logged in this morning to provide my weekly dose of "Fisher Life", I started reading some of the other blogs. It's really cool to see the perspective of other students who have never been at OSU until this year. I, however, have been on the OSU campus my entire life, I've worked here since I was in eighth grade (woot woot, summer job!) and I've been going to football games since I was 8. My mom is faculty in the Animal Sciences department and between my parents, my sister and myself, there are currently 7 degrees from The Ohio State University and currently the 8th is in progress.
So it's the middle of the second full week of classes... Here are some musings:
I have thoroughly enjoyed my first couple of weeks in the MAcc program thus far. It has been extremely challenging with trying to do so much at once, but very rewarding at the same time. One of my favorite parts of the program is the ability to take classes that interest you. Outside of the required accounting class, I am currently taking a managerial negotiations class because negotiations interest me; a financial management class that I really enjoy; and finally, an interesting real estate class that focuses on the core principles of real estate.
I started my MBA program hoping to record most lectures using a digital voice recorder. My plan was to review lectures during my commute to work or class. For my Organizational Behavior class (MBA860), the recordings were invaluable (Thanks to Prof. Ford for his permission) . This is especially true when the professor does not use or make available his lecture notes.
