Sort of a grownup

Tuesday, March 18th, 2008

The three people who read this blog have encouraged me to be more expressive about myself and not merely my penchant for writing javascript while listening to retro Britpop. Even if Duran Duran’s newest album is quite good. But I digress.

This fall, I’ll be returning full-time to school to pursue an MBA at NYU Stern. Many things have changed since I entered college eight years ago. I’ve changed. Communication has changed. Blackboard has not.

Two weeks ago, I went to a happy hour organized by a group of my future classmates at The Fat Black Pussycat. The awful choice of venue notwithstanding, it was great to meet so many new, seemingly eager people. People were so excitedly talking about their interests and career goals. Not surprisingly I didn’t meet anyone interested in technology or web-based services, but I loved being surrounded by so much optimism.

By the time I enter b school, I will have been away from college for as long as I attended it, but I’m still not entirely comfortable with the idea that I’m sort of a grownup now. And while I’m also not entirely comfortable sharing real thoughts on a blog (it’s just so laughably emo to me), I’m embracing what’s ahead. Even if that means my friends probably aren’t hanging out with high school girls anymore.
