About Me

July 21, 2009


*As previously Twittered, I am now officially weak sauce. I was incapable of lifting my carryon suitcase into the overhead bin. As in, I hoisted it halfway and failed miserably to complete the task. That Is Embarrassing. Yes, my friend called me the 80 pound girl with arthritis, but for heaven’s sake! It’s a joke! One, I weigh more than that and two, was almost always able to heave that ‘case ho (except that one time I way overpacked for winter in Italy and we were staying in a five story walk-up). I think that travelin’ friend has forgiven me for that ordeal.

* I get really easily bored on planes now. The flight attendants came through the cabin at least an hour before ETA offering “one more drink before we land?” and I bounced up out of my seat with an, “ooh! We’re landing??” Again: Embarrassing.

* Someone rationalized my talking to myself [out loud (in public)]: “Well, the rest of us have the pleasure of your conversation, I don’t see why you ought to deprive yourself. “ That’s sweet, but let’s be honest. After reading the above? How many of you would prefer not to be seen with me in public? It’s ok to be honest, I’d understand.

* There’s only so much socializing I can take. “But you’re in NEWYORK-you-can’t-stay-home!!” only works on me a few nights out of the week. I need quiet, productive time! I don’t know how those business students “network” [yes, no, that means party and drink] practically every night of the week. Columbia Business School is off my list of prospective schools.

* All about independence and tackling the challenges head on, but museums when you’re alone? Boring. Sorry. Just boring. Perhaps I need to perfect my talking-to-strangers skill?

* Food is always good.

    Bad news. All of B-school, no matter where you go is about drinking with your cohort. That is the entire point of B-School, drinking buddies that get you jobs.

    Take care of your liver!

    Lol at the second and third point!

    LOL! You actually sound hilarious to sit next to on a plane. I bet it would be highly entertaining. 😛

    I guess you are introverted. I’m at about the halfway point on the introvert-extrovert scale.

  5. Speaking from personal experience, I’m delighted to be seen with you in public…and not just because you make me feel tall!

    Thanks for the laugh – I’ve always thought business school was about the contacts (so the drinking is a requirement at least to some degree).

    You’d be fun to travel with – plane rides can be super boring.

    I work at a business school and like to read the student paper during the school year to see what the students are up to, and quite often they post photos of themselves getting plastered at parties. It’s very entertaining.
