Been very busy and have not been posting as often as I should, but at least I made it back just in time for Christmas. :) It doesn’t look like there will be snow on Christmas day, so we’ll just have to use our imaginations! Merry Christmas (Eve) to you and yours.
Christmas has lost its lustre over the years. I heard that it can happen during limbo, between the time you’re a kid and a parent, which is exactly where I am. It’s supposed to all come back when you have your own kids, but kids are so far out of the picture for me that Christmas will be lacklustre for a little while I suppose (lol). I’m going to sound like the grinch in about one second but I can’t get over the amount of money we are forced to spend during the holidays. The abundant gift of love, time, togetherness, and the presence of friends and loved ones is all it takes to celebrate Christmas in an awesome way. This to me is what makes this season special – love and togetherness. Spending thousands on material gifts is wasteful and unnecessary. I’m saving every penny for a house, so I’m opting out this year, sorry! :)
Happy December! I disappeared for a week, shame on me! It’s a busy time right now with a million projects wrapping up in preparation for the end of the term. Almost there though – this is the last chaotic week. :) I’ve enrolled in potential courses for next term, too! Have I ever mentioned that I love the process of picking courses? I find it fun. So far we have: New Products, Consumer Insights, and Retail Analytics, all of which will be particularly useful for my future role at General Mills and then I also tentatively enrolled in a Venture Capital & Private Equity course to feed my addiction to Dragon’s Den and Shark Tank!
On another note, I’m really not a fan of winter, so I’ll keep living in the summer through photos. :)
I’m so excited to announce that I’ve been accepted as an exhibitor at the One of a Kind Spring Show 2015 in March!!! I’m completely ecstatic and can hardly wait. It’s going to be a large undertaking and I have a lot to figure out between now and then but will keep the details coming as things unfold. <3
School has been a whirlwind these last couple of weeks and will continue to be for the next two weeks, but I'm hanging tight. It'll all be over soon. And then I simply can't believe I have only one more semester left of the MBA program - it felt like just yesterday I was studying for the GMAT exam. And now I've applied for graduation in June 2015. Very exciting times.
I'm also partaking in the US' Black Friday event this year for the first time ever, so a bunch of us are heading to Michigan on Thursday. Here's to hoping for a successful first experience.
This is yet another re-edit of a previous subpar edit. Happy Saturday!
