Now that finals are OVER, it's time to recap and discuss some highlights of Winter Quarter 2011.
I've never been a HUGE radio listener. And I can probably count on one hand the amount of times I've faithfully tuned to a radio station. For me, the only times I really get into the radio is when I am hunting all day long and need a steady dose of country music or, for some ridiculous reason, I happen to be up at or around 7am to see if I can catch some random Donny Baker rant on "The Bob & Tom Show". When it comes to radio, my biggest gripe was always too much advertisement and not enough music.
On a wet and rainy Friday in Columbus, it's difficult to find something to do other than watch re-runs of CSI and Law & Order: SVU on television. So instead of camping out in front of the TV, my roommate and I decided to hit up the Arnolds Sports Festival at the convention center in Downtown Columbus.
I've found out there are lots of ways to spend your time in graduate school. It's possible you could be devoting your time to studying for exams, quizzes and group projects. Right now, you may be spending your time preparing your body for a tropical spring break trip. You could even spend some time working at a job or hanging out with friends. Yet, what I've discovered as a graduate student is that I spend a lot of my time on 'things' that waste my time, especially when it comes to studying.
Last week, I was solely focused on anything that was mid-term exam & project-oriented. My tiny brain was inundated with meeting deadlines; reading...reading and...RE-reading Harvard Business Review case studies; agonizing over how to piece together several 2-15 page, 12-pt, Times New Roman, double-spaced, 1-inch margin explanation and recommendation papers; and, the COUP DE GRACE, cooking up ways to describe amazing broad topics such as competencies and balance scorecards.
