Well, I’ve been out for about a month now and there are some things I’ve learned.
1. Internet is not a want it’s a need. At my parents house, they don’t have highspeed Internet. I felt cut off from the world, I felt I could barely communicate. I now know what life was like back in the 1950′s. It’s scary how much I depend on my PC.
2. I have learned more in 6 months than I learned in 4 years of college. I look at the world a little differently than I did just a few months ago.
3. Family is important; at B-school, it’s often a single-minded focus on careers and education and success. Being able to spend time with friends and family is worth a lot more than that raise or end-of-year bonus for spending more time at the office. I hope I never lose sight of that.
Enough rambling; off to Marketing camp… John Hamilton has put on a hell of a program this year, I’ll fill you all in later. For those coming to Owen next year, even if you don’t concentrate in Marketing, DO NOT MISS THIS EVENT.
