Many things have happened since my last blog post. I’m not sure the fact that so much has happened because I had lots to going on or is simply due to the fact that I don’t blog as often as I should. Regardless, I want to share three and half new things in life.
First, I have a new place in Mt Pleasant/Columbia Heights. Per my previous blog post, my last living situation was not ideal and I choose to move on my own. Unlike with my previous living arrangement, I will not be hosting a house warming party. Sorry to disappoint those of you had had gotten used to the tradition. That being said, feel free to come visit. Mount Pleasant and Columbia Heights are full good bars and eateries that I love check out with some good company.
Second, I’m DONE with school. That’s right. I’m going to add “M.B.A” after my name in my e-mail signature. I kid, I kid. While I didn’t finished with my 4.0 like I intended when I started the program, I’m very happy with my end 3.5 that I ended with. Overall, I thought the program is wonderfully designed so that students were able apply the lessons learned in class in their daily workplace. Another aspect of the program that I really enjoyed is that each class built on previous one. And this class brought together many of the lessons from the previous classes. I was also very pleased with the quality of the professors throughout the program. Though, I may have had qualms with some of their teaching style, it never occurred to me that the professors or teaching assistants were unqualified to discuss the topic that were being brought up in class. I walked away from the with better research skills, better critical thinking skills, better writing skills (don’t use my writing on this blog as evidence) and better presentation skills. During the entire two years, I also had the pleasure to work with an amazing cast that made group work enjoyable. And to them I say, “Thank you”. I had planned to go law school after the finishing this program but as of right now those plans have been pushed back — pending further evaluation.
Lastly, I’ve moved on from DCI Group LLC. I very much enjoyed my time at DCI group. During my time there, I had the opportunity to meeting and work with some nice people on some very interesting projects that provided me unparalleled experience in the world of public affairs and government relations. As f this week, I now employed with Blue State Digital (BSD). My move to BSD will also take me to Boston late this year or early next year. While I love DC and its atmosphere, I’m excited about the prospect of living in another city. Although to be quite honest, It’s freaking cold in Boston. P.s. The move to Boston is the half item that I referred to in the first paragraph.
And that’s all for now folks. I’m looking forward to riding the quiet wave for a bit before getting busy again…. at least outside work.
