It happens

We all get those days when nothing goes according to plan. And its normal, even expected but when you have three of such days; back-to-back, you get worried.

Swing for the fences. …

I’ve been a Boothie for a while now, but I’ve actually been a student for a little under a week. I’ll be candid with you: its been a roller-coaster! And I did not expect anything different 🙂

Updates and Headaches

Its been a while 🙂

In the period since my last post (sans the financing my MBA post), I have resigned my job, obtained my visa, booked my flight home (I’ve got some free time to spend with the family) booked my flight to Chicago and finalized my living arrangements. I’m going to give a brief description of the Visa process & apartment hunting (it may not be useful to some) but …

Not Panicking

I am not panicking. Nope, Not at all.

But I am beginning to wonder what I was thinking when I decided to work full-time and plan my cross-continent relocation at the same time. There is a lot to do and I am honestly very tired – most (if not all) of the time! Read the rest of this entry »

Plans, Plans & more Plans

That seems to be all my life is about now. I really wish I could afford to go on funemployment right now so I can fully focus on preparing for school but I can’t for two reasons, only one of which is money. *sigh*.

I’ve recently realised that I’m not as disorganised as I thought but I’m not as organised as most type-A personalities, though I will agree that I am a ‘plan-a-holic’. This is what my current ‘final’ plan looks like (dates are the latest possible date for concluding the tasks – I hope): Read the rest of this entry »

On your marks …

It’s been a while since I posted anything here. Very sorry for the silence but it was necessary. Here’s a rundown of what has happened since my last post:

  • I’ve gone on a mini-vacation
  • Gotten on an (read: several) apartment wait list (also actively searching on Zillow)
  • had a minor surgery
  • Freaked out over the financial implications of getting an MBA (this is almost routine now)
  • Turned down a job offer
  • Turned down a post-MBA job offer (two actually)
  • Met with a few members of the Booth class of 2017 (nice people)
  • Paid my second commitment deposit
  • Wrapped up several projects at work

That turned out to be quite a list 🙂 , I’ve been busy.  Read the rest of this entry »

I’m here!!!

I’ve been away from the blogosphere for a long while and I apologize for that. Some of it is laziness but most of it is being overwhelmed; by work, plans and decisions. It occurred to me that I never posted my decision here so that’s what I’m here to do. Unsurprisingly I accepted Booth’s offer. Surprisingly, I have decided (haven’t sent the actual email but decision’s been made) to withdraw my Sloan application. Read the rest of this entry »
