Term 7, for all practical purposes, starts today. My association with a Fin subject lasted all of one class (that I missed by the way because of the EDS thing). Dropped the business valuation course and took BIDM (Business Intelligence and Data Mining) instead. Submitted an assignment for it already, so am well and truly in. my subjects therefore are: Advertising, IT and Business Strategy, BIDM and Branding.
Preplacement talks…assignments…resume building…interview prep…the last 2 only exist on the POA thus far.
Feels like I’m hurtling along on an interstate at 3am with no lights..peering into the distance trying to figure out if that shortlived glint 300 yards ahead and closing fast were the eyes of a deer scurrying past or the back of a stranded 18-wheeler. The tarmac is pitch black too…maybe it rained a while ago…doesn’t explain the absence of the reassuring dashed white lane markings though. No exit signs…no billboards offering choices of greasy, unwholesome, yet oh-so-good cheesburgers. Just have my eyes riveted on the bleak expanse of nothing as it flashes by...trying to make some sense out of apocryphal questions: where am i going…where do I want to go…why cant I see a damn thing. Is it going to be light soon?
