Living life in the carpool lane..

Posts Tagged ‘MBA

Several things have happened between the time I last wrote an entry and now..

For starters, I’m done with my MBA.  I finished the program on February 1st.  With Joe’s help, I managed to get an A for my last class.  It was a hard finance class.  I’m terrible with numbers and Joe’s really good with numbers… so he worked his magic and helped me.. a lot.

We’ve also got a lot of the big planning stuff out of the way for our wedding.

This week I’ll be working on making some Save-The-Date cards for the guests that will need to make major travel arrangements to attend our wedding.

Most people give Save-the-Date cards to all their potential guests, but our tight budget is only allowing us to make enough to cover the people that will be most likely making flight arrangements for our wedding.  That was the condition that the guest needed in order to get a Save-the Date.

That way, we only needed about twenty cards.

I’m going to be working on them with one of my best friends.  I’ll try to post pictures of the finished product as soon as they are ready…

According to my bestie, who purchased all the paper for me today.. should I not use a specific type of paper I asked for.. the entire costs of the Save-the-Dates would be about $20.. so.. about a dollar each.  I guess that’s a good price.. I mean.. there will be no shipping and handling costs from getting them printed from some online place.. and the price isn’t hiked up due to being charged for the labor of the workers doing them.. so I guess I’m getting a good deal making them with my friend.

And.. it’s FUN!!

I hope to get these out before the end of the month..

Yippee!!!

I’m a scientist.  I have my Bachelor’s Degree in Biotechnology, with emphasis on Pathology and Microbiology.. and a minor in Chemistry.

I’m a scientist working on her Masters in Business Administration.

What am I doing getting a business degree?

Honestly.. sometimes I really don’t know.

I was fine and content with my science career.. and my science geek lifestyle.

I guess that was it.. I was content.

I needed change.. and I needed to stretch my brain into learning new concepts and learning how to think about things at a different angle.

Sometimes its working.. sometimes.. like now.. I feel like I’m killing my brain cells.. this class makes me feel so out of my element that I am killing my brain cells trying to absorb it all.

Someone remind me how great it will be once I get my MBA..

I know you are all dying to see some of the pictures my Las Vegas adventures, but I do these blogs at work, and I can’t upload my pictures on to my work computer.

It’ll have to wait until I have time to upload the pictures, and post an entry at home..

Let’s shoot for this weekend.. cross your fingers!

There’s been a lot going through my mind.. random things mostly.. stress.. a yearning..

I’m wanting to do so many things and I know there isn’t enough time in a lifetime to accomplish them all.  Sometimes that makes me discouraged.. other times.. it makes me feel determined.

Right now I just feel complacent.  Work.. home.. school.. work.. home.. school..

I know that I’m just chugging along and finishing my MBA  program.. by December I should be done.  I’m already halfway through my first class of the year.  The time is flying by. 

Things will change up eventually.  Once school is done I’ll have free time to do things again.  I’ll be able to schedule things again.  I’ll be able to have a life again.

These are the things I knew I had to sacrifice going back to school.  I chose to go back anyway. 

Feeling stuck in one place just doesn’t feel good to me.  I feel stuck.  I don’t like feeling stuck.. I want to move.  I want the freedom to go where ever without having to worry about homework or deadlines and due dates.

I keep thinking to myself that this is the home stretch.. it’s pretty much all downhill from here.. it’s a countdown to the number of classes I have left.. I’ve gotten over the hump.. and it’s just a downward slide to the degree..

Then.. my life can begin.. and I can make those life altering changes comfortably.. even though I’m not sure how I’d fare financially..

Let’s just not think about it too much right now..

We interupt today’s first day of school to add a blog entry.

This class is called Enterprise Risk.  Looking at the syllabus, it seems like it has a lot to do with law..

Coming from a completely scientific background.. I’m a little nervous about this class.  I’m always nervous about starting these classes because they are always out of my comfort zone.  I avoided business classes during my undergraduate days.  I never expected that I would be going for my MBA.. but here I am..

I think I need to get back to my class though..

I’m busy for these next two weeks.. I want to get the stuff done sooner than later because these next weekends are going to be busy.. and maybe if I get ahead.. I might be able to stay ahead..I don’t wanna stress with my classes this year..

Wish me luck!
