I thought it would be nice to say a quick hello during winter break. We’ve been out of classes since December 9th and don’t return until January 17th. That means we have over a full month to reflect on the first semester, decompress, prep, and get ready to do it all over again.
As for me, I decided to spend the majority of my break in Austin and take the time to reconnect with my non-MBA friends, do some work around the house, read a few non-business books, research everything India (my spring global destination!) and get back into a work-out habit. It’s amazing how these small things can make a big difference in mentally reviving oneself! (I’m also spending a lot of time preparing for Spring interviews, but that part is far less relaxing!)
There’s much to be said about the first semester experience, but I think Sarah did a pretty good job of that. Instead, I will share a picture from the first part of my vacation, taken in Keystone, Colorado. On a last minute whim, three MBAs, our significant others, and one significant other minus her MBA-boyfriend decided to rent a cabin in Breckenridge and play in the snow. Even though I had only met five members of this group just once during school, our MBA connection created an amazing vacation and lifelong friendships.
Happy New Year Everyone!!! Here’s to a fabulous burnt orange 2012!
