Thought for the day

The faith you have in others is a reflection of the faith you have in yourself.

Life may have a trash bin, but there's no "Delete Forever" option. Be careful about what you invite/accept into your life. Someday, it might define you.

All roads lead to happiness; we just don't know where to stop.

Life's Good

Joined classes yesterday. And we already have an assignment due next week. The admissions department almost fainted on seeing me. "We have been waiting for you like.. forever!!!". I smiled honestly. After reporting to the International Student Services (ISS), it was time to meet my Admissions Director, Dr. William Koehler. He has been pivotal in my admissions. I don't know what would I have done without his recommendation and the letter to the consulate for my VISA. It is a pity that Fed Ex messed up my I-20. It's a strong case for Consumer Forum. But that's another story.

When I saw him in his office yesterday, he exclaimed: Finally! We have been trying really hard to get you here. But then, it was worth the efforts. I don't want to say it yet. If there's one person I don't want to let down- it'd be this man.

He introduced me to professor Michael Novak, who'd be taking my core course- MBAMGT 650 i.e Organizational Analysis and Skills and who is also the Associate Dean for the College of Management.

In the evening, I had my first Graduate Management Association (GBA) meeting at 5 pm , where I got to meet a few seniors and peers from my semester- some of whom I won't be seeing otherwise.

Around 6 pm, I rushed for my classes on M03-0617 (that's McCormack Hall, 3rd Floor, room no. 617 ) with professor Novak. I was allocated my team with Gordon Taylor, Matt Belletete, Wendy Casazza, Vanessa Montero, and Michael Cheung. And I already like them. :)

Btw, this is a video we were shown at the end of the class : The Corporate Handshake at GE.

After 3 hrs of classes, and still suffering from motion sickness from the long flight, I should have felt exhausted. But a surprise b'day cake from my friends rejuvenated my spirits.

I am feeling I'm home. Finally.
