It's Friday afternoon and I'm finished with what I'm considering my first official week of graduate school....some of the highlights:
I've noticed as I've read through several of the other blogs that people have commented on on the expense of buying books through campus bookstores or are curious as to where they can find a cheaper alternative. As my fiance puts it, I'm a connoisseur of online buying; most everything I buy is from online and multiple times cheaper than the vast majority of retail stores.
One day a few months ago, I was having one of those days... I was finishing up my senior seminar class, my computer died, my camera was broken, and as I was driving to Wal-Mart (the only store in the small city) my windshield wiper broke and my gas light came on. Looking back, I realize that each of these were just one small thing that was not hard to fix, but at the time I thought my world was crashing down around me.
Remember when it's the night before the first day of class and you sleep early so you'll be up bright and early the next day. Not anymore.
It’s the night before my first day of business school and I don’t know how to describe my feelings. Does “reluctant anticipation” make sense to anyone? Don’t get me wrong... I am definitely excited about the start of classes. This is something I have wanted to do for a long time. Earning my MBA from Fisher College will provide me the business skills necessary to think both critically and strategically about leadership and management. What more could I ask, right?
