Football season is one of the best parts of autumn quarter at Ohio State. Ohio is plagued by awful NFL teams – specifically the Browns but I guess the Bengals also need to be put in this category. Despite the Browns and Bengals struggles, the OSU Buckeyes are consistently a powerhouse in college football. This helps my sanity as the Bengals season continues to implode.
Although the Buckeyes won’t battle for the national championship this January, they still have a great shot to represent the Big Ten in the Rose Bowl. This past weekend the Buckeyes played the Nittany Lions and came out victorious despite a few first half scares.
Regardless of the win, this weekend was really great because a few of my undergraduate classmates came to town to visit and watch the game. I wasn’t able to get tickets for everyone, so I sold my ticket and we all went to the Varsity Club to watch the game with hundreds of other fans. If you ever aren’t able to go to a game, I highly recommend you watch at the Varsity Club. It turns into quite the scene by the fourth quarter.
I’m back… sorry for the long absence.
A lot has been going on recently and unfortunately blogging had to take a backseat while I prepared for final presentations, exams and the start of my internship. The good news is that I successfully made it through my first year of the MBA program and have an awesome internship lined up for the summer.
Internship – I have made it through my first week at Cardinal Health. I’m a Finance intern for the Nuclear Pharmacy Services division. I find the work really interesting and have already learned an unbelievable amount. I’ll continue updating the blog with work related updates.
Next summer plans – I recently committed to join some of my Yale rowing friends in a competition next summer (The Henley Royal Regatta) in Henley-on-Thames, England. This will be my fourth time rowing in the regatta, so hopefully we can finally win it. The regatta is similar to March Madness – basically it is a single elimination bracket and teams row a 2112 meter course in a one-on-one competition. If you win every race it will be five consecutive days of exhaustive races.
I’m going to remain quite busy with FGSA this summer. We are working with Dean Wruck to set-up several “current event debates” between faculty members during the lunch hour. If you have any good ideas for topics, please let me know.
That’s all for now. I’ll start updating the blog more often.
