Sometimes it’s good to just sit back for a minute, look back, and just be thankful that whatever it is that you’re reflecting on is behind you. That’s what I’m doing tonight. I can finally relax. Two of the biggest hurdles I had before the Hood to Coast race have finally passed.
MBA Semester Ended: I am finally recovering from a very stressful week last week. It was, by far, the most challenging week I’ve had since starting this MBA program. In a week, I had to finish a take home exam all about setting up Linear Programming models. Sounds fun right? I swear to you, every night, I’d come home from work (which was also especially challenging), S would take E to the gym and I would study from 6:30 to 1:00. I would find myself staring at the screen of excel just praying that the Linear Programming Gods would have mercy on me and help me see the answer. That went on every night. Then FINALLY on Thursday night at 1:30, it clicked! It did. I actually figured it out. How, I don’t know but I’m grateful. It allowed me to not have to turn in a blank final. AND..it turns out I got an A in the class so now I can relax till September 13th. We’re on a much needed break.
