But it's fun. I've learned more finance, both for startups and large corporations in the last three weeks than I have in the past ten years. I've improved my speech giving skills. I've worn a wig. I've done an LBO model. It's been great.
The best part of school, versus work, is just the feeling of freedom. No need to follow a corporate culture. No need to censor my language or stop an inappropriate joke. No need to meet anyone's expectations but my own. I work at my own pace, manage school and activities at my own pace. It's like personal entrepreneurship or self-expression at some level.
I miss NYC sometimes though, and weekends. Every day is a marathon of meetings, classes, preparation, and the like...just to keep up. But the energy is good, everyone is pretty damn friendly, and there's a party every week so I can't complain.
I'm beginning to sound like a damn advertisement.
