Category: Exploring Columbus
This week I'll let my lovely wife, Tiffany, share her experience at the zoo with everyone. Tiffany: The Columbus Zoo is a fun place for the whole family to spend a half day. The zoo is clean and we like how the zoo is designed so we won’t miss any attractions. The Halloween decorations are all over the zoo. You can see pumpkins everywhere. The zoo is a good place for picnic and there are also many outdoor eating areas. We arrived at the zoo at noon and noticed that not all the food court and food stands are open. I guess it’s because it’s a weekday.
Just complained about the busy schedule of an ordinary MBA student's life... but I have to say that is not the whole story. In fact, MBA includes not only busy schedule but also relaxing hours, not only tons of "painful" assignments but also numerous enjoyable moments. And I will share one of such moments as following.
This Friday the Graduate Human Resources Association (GHRA) planned a social event to go to Terrorfest, a huge and very creepy haunted house in the Brewery District of Columbus and then go out after in the Gateway (a section of High St right off of campus). I was really excited because our class hasn't done a whole lot of out of class bonding. Well...I was excited until I remembered what exactly a haunted house entails...creepy people, strobe lights and screaming.
When I was working I often felt like Sundays carried a different weight than other days of the week. If things were great at work, Sunday was a often spent out with friends at brunch, shopping, cooking, in the park, or sleeping in after a great Saturday night out on the town. During busy weeks at the office, or when I was less than excited about my job, Sunday carried that scent of anxiety or sounds of a steady clock ticking down on remaining free time, or sometimes, I was already back in the office.
Yesterday, Sarah and I were invited to go watch Football at Paninis, a local bar/grill. We went to watch the Buckeyes, and the Texas/OU game. Quite a fun time, with a lot of MAccers in attendance, as well as a few significant others, and a couple of OSU Law students as well. The food at Paninis is great. They serve paninis (big surprise) but these things are different than panini I have ever seen before. They are piled high with meat/cheese/cole slaw or whatever else you ordered, and are absolutely monstrous, just huge!
