Sorry I haven't posted these last few weeks....like, at all.....
Things have been kind of crazy. We had mandatory vacation in December in lieu of layoffs which is definitely a plus, but which also meant that I had piles of work waiting for me when I got back, as did everyone else.
MBA applications proceeded to devour the rest of my time. I was in DC with Matt from 12/30 - 1/4, so I didn't have much time to do anything and when I got back I had 3 apps due right in a row. I'd almost finished the first one before I left so that was no problem, but the second two needed a lot of work and were only due a week and a half later, one day apart from each other. Obviously I wanted to put a lot of time and effort into all three of them, the result being:
a) I completely stopped going to the gym.
b) I hardly slept
c) I didn't have time to go to the store so I survived mainly off of toast, yogurt and cereal.
On the other side of the madness, 4 out of 5 apps are in! The 5th is almost done I just need to put in 1 more day of solid work on it. I see the light at the end of the tunnel finally :) I also had an interview already with the first school I applied to, and scheduled another with a different program next Wednesday.
