Operation Ivy.

Thursday, March 31st, 2011

One would seriously have to question the specific line of logic used by Harvard to grant me admission, but I’m pretty glad they reached the outcome they did. Doing a stint at HBS is quite surreal. Tyra Banks is here a the moment, as is the Crown Princess of Norway, which is.. um.. nice?

The campus here is perfect… maybe a bit too perfect, the faculty are mind-blowingly good, and the program itself is without a doubt the best education I have ever undertaken. I believe that my time here will be a complementary fit with my MBA studies back in the UK. Beyond that, I would be more than happy to pass through here once every 18-24 months for the rest of my life. The wealth of knowledge in these walls is quite difficult to convey, but tapping into this school for only a brief period of time really does feel like jumping your brain with a 20,000 volt academic powerline!

In summary, I’m substantially broker for this experience, but deep down inside, I think they have just secured a repeat customer.

A BIG Thank-You to the guy at Goorin Bros Hat Shop for hooking me up on the doorlist for tonight’s Sold-Out Glassjaw gig. A perfect way to end my first night in Boston on 39 hours with no sleep. xx

Where is my mind?

Friday, March 18th, 2011

I have successfully managed to neglect this blog (& many more important things in my life) during my ongoing MBA studies. I am off O/S in the coming week, so I should have something resembling an interesting entry soon… but for the immediate future, this neglection shall continue.

As a side note, my headspace is somewhere between these two clips…

[Macroeconomics is much more fun if you read the textbook with Yo-Landi's voice in your mind... Try it with the word "Stagflation". See what I mean?]
