Fast Forward to Fall

Well, this has been another whirlwind of a semester. Still, I am allegedly going to finish this part-time MBA project I started ages ago. Allegedly, because I have to pass an exit exam and defend a Capstone project for a new business, that – shhhhh – I have zero interest in starting. For someone who comes from a family of entrepreneurs, I am oddly conservative when it comes to employment. I want my paychecks to come at regular internals in the expected amounts. Is that so wrong? However, I have a whole new level of respect for people who are going it on their own. Man, it’s a lot of work.

I’ve been really luck this semester. I have eight classes: five face-to-face and three online. I’m only bouncing between two schools. All my students are great, and I haven’t had any major issues thus far. However, Midterm Exams are looming. There’s still plenty of time for things to fall apart. 🙂

I took the semester off from French so that I could finish the MBA degree in peace. Next term, I’ll tie up the 2nd BA in French. And then – no more degrees! This has been a fun experiment, but I’m done. I should be starting my job search this month, and I know it won’t happen overnight. Several of my colleagues were looking for years. Still, it’s worth it when you finally find a place that feels like home.

So far September has been a great start to the school year. We’ve had two Jewish holidays, plus Labor Day off. I reconnected with some friends at the French Alliance, and I had a visit from my baby brother James who is ALL-GROWN-UP! When did that happen??? I checked out the Madeline exhibit at the New York Historical Society – love this books – and the Sesame Street exhibit at the New York Performing Arts Library. It was pretty much a month to tap into my inner child, complete with a ride on the Toys’R Us ferris wheel with James. Back to school, eh? Looking forward to October.
