Career Forum Day 1

Here's my schedule for today:

8:30 - turn in rabbit skin case report
8:45-9:45 - Presentation by CitiGroup
10:00-11:00 - Presentation by Google
11:15-12:15 - Presentation by Merck
12:30-1:30 - Presentation by Airbus (but I went to eat lunch instead)
1:30- 2:30 - Presenation by Europraxis (had no idea what this company was until I arrived at the presentation)

Two of the presentations were in Spanish - Marck and Europraxis - which I actually preferred because I could practice my Spanish comprehension. CitiGroup had a cool video and I appreciated the production value. Google was Google... could be an ok place to work, if I have to work for someone else.

Anyway, after the presentations I came home and sat on the roof reading cases for a little while and fell asleep reading about marketing canned mushrooms. (No really, it was very exciting... really.) Tried to do an accounting case and failed miserably... though I also must consider it a victory because for once I didn't immediately burst into tears of frustration. Met mom and dad for dinner in El Born, and now it's midnight and I'm going to bed.

Tomorrow we have another career day and unfortunately I won't be finished by 2:30 this time. There's a big gap in the afternoon so I'll have to be at school from 10 till about 7. Then I'm having dinner with mom and dad and the cool dermatology couple who took me out to dinner with Casey several weeks back. Wednesday we go back to classes as normal, which will be great because I won't have to wear suits anymore or pretend to be interested in things I don't care about! Nice!

How do you bring yourself to write so regularly?

I write for a few reasons:
1) I love to write.
2) It keeps me sane.
3) It actually SAVES me time... because otherwise I'd be writing at least a dozen emails per day with all of this information.
4) I'm sure I'll look back on it and laugh. In fact, I already do!

And i am thankful that you blog regularly. As someone who is more of a reader than a writer and one who wish to jump to the other side but not being able to do so due to laziness (or whatever), I am amazed.
