Finally, International Orientation is complete! Not that is wasn’t fun, it’s just over. We had a lot of things going on this week. For the first time in my life, I went to a ropes course, and it was hard. We didn’t do much climbing, but we did a lot of swinging and that made dizzy.
So just as I predicted, everyone in the international group is great. I was able to memorize all the names in the group, so I got a gold star for that, but really everyone is wonderful. Here is a picture of the group:
Professors keep scarring us about how hard the first semester is going to be. I hope is just to we are on our feet, because they just paint it so bad. The one thing that I like to do, and they say is the hardest is reading. Over the past 10 years I’ve become much better at reading and learning from the readings, so hopefully it won’t be so bad. Now for group projects, I’m scared. I’m not very good at group projects. I can do my part, and if everyone is good at putting in good work, I’m in; but if we have a black sheep in the group it’s going to be bad.
I’ve had good prep work for my resume, and I think it’s looking good. Just two days ago I had a friend go over it, and I need to do those changes. Overall it has been a very good experience trying to polish my resume.
On the home front things are very good. I have the great blessing of having a wonderful wife. I truly is a blessing to come from school, and just hear good experiences. I would be so hard to come home to complaints or home sickness. Debora is wonderful. Nicole is doing good too. She had her first checkup and although she needs to put on some weight, she is very healthy.
This coming week will be MBA Orientation, so the real work begins. I’m excited, and happy.
