Until one is committed, there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back, always ineffectiveness. Concerning all acts of initiative (and creation) there is one elementary truth, the ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans: that the moment one definitely commits oneself, then Providence moves too. All sorts of things occur to help one that would never otherwise have occurred. A whole stream of events issues from the decision, raising in one’s favor all manner of unforeseen incidents and meetings and material assistance, which no man could have dreamed would have come his way.
Thats a very nice idea. I hope its true and many ways I do believe it to be true.
Oooooooooh man…..I can’t believe that just happend in Heroes!!!!!! woah……that was crazy!!!!!!!
Sorry, got distracted for a second.
Ooh oh oh Mna, that was so nice! I called that too! I LOVE THIS SHOW!
haha ok, its over now so no more distractions. Unfortunately if the show is over my break time is over too so I need to get back to work 😦 Lets see if I can do this quickly.
The above quote speaks of about committing to a decision. My last post was about making a decision. This is kind of inbetween. Well maybe not. I have decided yeah, consulting not for me. It would just mean I sacrifice too much for too little. The tradeoff is too much. Theres been a lot of trade-offs lately.
I really wanted to do an exchange term. Go study somewhere else overseas. Singapore, England, or maybe Spain. But I’d miss out on too much of the full time recruiting events in 2nd year. And getting a job is much more important than simply trying for fun. Yes it would be a great life experience, but now that I’m doing internal consulting or general management international experience brings less value as well. Particularly when I already have a decent amount of such experience.
There seems to be a lot of tradeoffs lately. And I guess its just the nature of the program. Everything else falls by the wayside and its all about school and case competitions, strategy challenges, innovation contests or what have you. Having to study instead of going out with friends. Somewhat ironic that I feel this way this week when last week I was like I wonder why everyone is so stressed, things aren’t that busy. Just got to go with the flow…..then came this weekend. After spending almost the entire weekend in group meetings and organizing stuff in my calendar…..I don’t think i’m free for anything till next year! 😦
(this post is so amazingly unorganized compared to what I was thinking of writing earlier…oh well don’t have time to fix it).
I can’t wait to for this winter break! Why? Well because I’m going to CHINA!!!!!!!!!!!!
My cousin is teacher over in Beijing this semester so I’m going to fly out there and then we’re going to go backpack around for 2 weeks! Beijing, Hong Kong, Shanghai, Xian, and maybe 1 more place…I’m not sure yet. We’ll see how it goes. But yeah, I’m really excited about that! Woohoo China!!!!!
Anyhow, I’ll try to write something that seems a bit more coherent later on. Lets move on to pics, I have down that in awhile. And well i still wont’. Wont post them that is. But I will link to them. Cause thats just sooo much faster right now.
I went indoor rock climbing last week. It was fun! I say that Sauga bloggers should all get together and go do it! um……next year though.
