Happy Birthday to me
WOW - almost a year since I last posted. Might have to revive this thing in Nicole's honor. Stay tuned...

Spring is Here
I love this time of year. I love being able to step outside without a jacket and the feeling of the sun rays on my skin as I walk to class. Life is pretty great these days. School is going well, though it is extremely hard to stay motivated as far as studying and assignments. I cannot believe there are only four weeks of class left before the end of my first year. Time flies when you're having fun.
Last night we had a year-end Cluster E awards ceremony and fantastic prizes and awards were handed out. I left the event a double winner, taking with me titles for Best Dance Moves as well as Most Likely to have a Stripper Pole in her Bedroom. My parents would be so proud.
Don't think I mentioned anything about my internship yet - but I do have one and I will be staying in New York for it this summer. The job is in Corporate Finance, leading into a Finance Leadership Development Rotational Program for full time, with a major pharma company (I am sure you can guess which one). Don't know yet which department I will be assigned to but I am excited to experience NYC in the summer.
Over the last few weeks we have had a lot of elections taking place for next year's club leadership positions. I decided to get involved in several clubs and will be assuming duties as the VP of Finance for HCIA (Healthcare Industry Association) as well as the President of the West Coast Society. I also interviewed for a board position in Hermes and should hear back about that this coming week.
Speaking of Hermes, Open House is coming up VERY soon and I've been working hard to make sure the class of 2009 admits have as much fun as we did last year at all the events. It will be great to meet the incoming class and I hope everything runs smoothly!

Year One, Term Two
Back to school. The J-Termers are here and the class of 2008 is officially complete. Happy hour was packed and every girl was checking out the new boys on the block. It appears that the J-term clusters are about 85% male so all the single girls are on the prowl!
So far I like my classes much better this semester; I am taking mostly core courses but did manage to squeeze in two electives. Here is what my schedule looks like:
Decision Models (1/2 term) - so far my least favorite class (partially due to its 9am occurrence)
Managerial Accounting (1/2 term) - will take second term
Capital Markets and Investments (elective) - this class is going to kick my butt and I am possibly already lost. The prof seems great through and it will be nice to learn something brand new. Additionally, I finally have a class with AxeChick!!!
Managing Marketing Programs (1/2 term) - I really enjoyed last semester's marketing strategy class and looking forward to this one.
Leadership (1/2 term) - second term
Operations Management - the old vice dean is teaching the course and it promises to be the best class of the semester.
Healthcare marketing: from start-up to multinationals (elective) - this class is really small (I think only 15 students) and I am very excited to get to know the prof and my classmates. Our first case study is on Cialis, Viagra, and Levitra :)
Not too many news on the internship front. Two interviews down, four more scheduled so far in the coming weeks, still one known offer.
