Well, friends, the day is finally here…
…I’m writing a blog. Some may not believe it after my many gripes of essay writing in undergrad, application writing for MBA programs, and executive summary writing at work. However, since I will be in a different time zone than most of my family and friends, I am choosing a medium to share my adventures and misadventures over the next year. I’m committing to at least 2 blog posts per month from now until I graduate with an Oxford Saïd MBA…so I’m trusting many of you will hold me to this! I don’t promise fantastic prose or grammar, but I do promise brief updates, lessons learned, and lots of pictures.
[Insert comparable phrase that many who know me may not believe]
…I’m taking three months for myself and traveling. Okay, okay, maybe this one is not so hard to believe. My car is packed up and I’m driving down to Florida, dropping my things off at my dad’s, and jumping on a plane to SouthEast Asia for a month! But before Florida, I’m making pit stops in Winston-Salem, Atlanta, and Gainesville to visit with friends and family.
[To close out my Oxford Comma series with likely the most unbelievable of all]
…I’m leaving Capital One. After six years of incredible personal and professional growth, I’ve made the bittersweet choice to quit my job, pursue an MBA full-time, and enter a state of funemployment1. I cannot and will not forget those of you that made an indelible impression on me and helped mold me into the person I am today. Check-out my next blog later this week dedicated to my lessons learned across the years.
