Gulp. You know that phrase “if you want something done give it to a busy person?” Well, as it turns out, that only holds true up until a certain point. And I have reached that point.
I came to McCombs for the wide range of experiences it would provide me with. Therefore, as interesting opportunities presented themselves last semester, I snatched them up one by one. As a result, I’m now the Communications VP for Net Impact; a Board Fellow for a local Community Development Financial Institution called PeopleFund; the Alumni Affairs Chair of the Graduate Business Council; a member of the President’s Sustainability Steering Committee (as in Bill Powers, the President of all of UT); and oh by the way, a blogger for Texas MBAs Talk.
Aside from these ongoing commitments, I participated in the all-consuming Urban Land Institute Design Challenge Courtney Blackburn recently posted about, and I’m the Marketing Chair of the Sustainable Business Summit that’s taking place later this month. In early March I leave for two weeks in India through the Global Connections course I’m enrolled in, (which has taken just a little bit of prepping for), and last weekend I managed to squeeze in a ski trip to Park City, Utah with one hundred of my classmates. When you add to the pile the small tasks of finding a summer internship and keeping up with my academic course load, you’ve got one tired/overwhelmed/delirious/absent-minded Caroline.
But, if given the chance to do it all over again differently, would I? The answer: absolutely not.
