In all the excitement last week, with the case competition, and studying for exams this week, I almost left out writing about another awesome opportunity I had last week. Last Wednesday, the aluminum manufacturer Alcoa had a function on campus relating to some of the grants they have given to the school for various research projects.
So I've once hit that snag where "I'm so over this quarter." It typically happens around midterms. I think it also does not help that next week I schedule my last two classes of graduate school, so I am THAT much closer to receiving my MLHR degree. It also does not help that I have what seems an overwhelming amount of projects to do in a very little span of time.

As a side note, my fiance tells me I have "random song association disorder". Basically, I randomly think of songs at the most random times that somehow seem to fit perfectly into whatever situation I'm in. When I was typing the title of this post, the song "So Far Away" by Carol King. So anyway, if you know the song, I think you might agree it somewhat fits.
