things are looking up?

Internship - check
Partial-quarter classes starting to go away - check plus
Summer housing - check minus
Summer travel plans and flights - check minus
Alienating my academic advisor - check plus

So that's the latest around here, folks. And with the quarter ending officially in less than 3 weeks, I don't feel a drop of nostalgia, anxiety or fear that my time at business school is passing too quickly. All I can think is, so long farewell I'm out.

I cannot wait for the school year to end and to re-enter the working world in a relatively risk-free role as the summer intern. I get to make a little money (precious little). I get to socialize with people who aren't my classmates. I get to learn about an industry that makes me tick. I also know that during my fifteen weeks away from the GSB, I will get to do a lot of reflecting on the good and the bad at Stanford. There is a lot of good, but I often need to be removed from a situation to remind myself of all that I love about it. I hope that my summer experience will help me solidify my business school "learnings" and reinvigorate me for my second year.

Or at the very least, I hope I'll get a good tan.

It's always good to take a breather from an intense experience. Looking forward to hearing what your internship experience was like and your reflections on Stanford.

I hope my husband also gets some perspective while he's away in NYC this summer. I think b-school can be so overwhelming and often contrived that it's hard to really see what you're gaining while you're in the middle of it. Congrats on the internship :).

As an incoming GSB student this whole blog, every post of it, was great to read. I'd be curious go hear what your thoughts are now that you've had a summer and an internship to reflect on it.

Thanks for keeping up this blog.
