One of those weeks…

I don’t know why anyone ever bothers to ask me what my plans for the weekend are. For a little while longer the answer will probably be:

-School
-Homework
-Work
-Family
-Some combination of the above

Unfortunately, the answer will probably usually be one of the first three, but in reality, “family” is the most important one. For the time being, I just have to get through school and all the corresponding reading, research, and team meetings involved in finishing my MBA.

This past week has been a busy one. Work has been crazy busy, school is starting to really pile on as we start heading in towards projects, reports, and presentations being due. I also decided I was going to try and enjoy myself a little bit more. I’ve been cutting myself off from social events because it takes away from my study time. However, I miss spending time with my friends and sometimes I don’t know what’s going on with them.

This was a busy week because after work every day, I had something going on:

Monday night: IS class
Tuesday night: LA Geek Dinner
Wednesday night: Marketing Consulting class
Thursday night: Dinner and ice cream with Yoshi and DM
Friday night: Late lunch with EB; drive to IKEA Carson (far!); dinner in Torrance with Yoshi and a group of folk related to Yoshi

The only thing that sucks about going out like this is that I still have work and reading to do after I get home… and sometimes it doesn’t get done a timely manner.

I was so tired after my adventures last night, I basically didn’t wake up in time to get to school in Encino so I could meet with my group for an “Integration” class that I’m in. Luckily, I was only 15 minutes late, but I still felt bad.

I can’t wait to be done with school, but the sooner I get to graduation, the more I realize I need to do something about my job/career. What I’m doing is fine for the time being, but what better time to restart my efforts in moving on in my career than when I’m wrapping up my MBA program? I’ve been thinking a lot about what I wanted to get out of this program and if there’s anything I should try to take advantage of while I’m still here. I’m not sure what I’ve come up with, but I do know that there is quite a bit of soul-searching going on these days. Wish me luck.
