There was a saying that we used in the Marine Corps: "It is easier to keep up than catch up."
People, perhaps now more than ever, like instant gratification. We want answers and results right now. We don't want to have to wait until 6 in the evening to catch the evening news, which is why we have multiple 24 hour cable news networks. Most of us carry more computing power in our pockets than it took to get to the moon, so that we have everything, news, weather, banking info, contacts, and whatever else there is an app for, at our fingertips.
Saying that I am a student once again may not be completely accurate, because really, we are all constantly students in life, expanding our horizons and our knowledge. Perhaps "back to being a professional student" is a more accurate description. It has been a little over six years since I received my Bachelor's degree in Ohio Stadium (a.k.a. the Horseshoe), and in those six years I learned a lot about myself and the world. I am sure I will talk more about the journey in future posts, but here is a picture to serve as a primer.
What a sentimental week for a senior... As a combined BSBA/MAcc student, this is my fourth and final year at Ohio State. This past week was what I would fondly refer to as an epic one - complete with the Mirror Lake jump, my first OSU men's basketball game of the year, the Michigan game, and of course Thanksgiving and all the food and napping that may imply!
