...and I'm back! Phew! The Atlanta skyline never looked so beautiful as it did last night. It's nice to be home.
So for my final day in the Tour de Florida, I drove from Tallahassee (FSU) to Gainesville (UF) then back to Atlanta (GT). UF has plenty of student parking on campus. You can park in place all over campus so you can actually drive from place to place which is how it should be. Here at Tech, you can only park in your designated area and then you have to walk everywhere so you really only drive when you're leaving campus which is kinda silly. It would be so useful if we could drive to class! Anyways, I went and got more info about the MBA program and whatnot. It turns out they require 2 years of professional work experience, which I don't have yet since I'm still in school. I went and talked to some financial and management professors anyways and got some info about their programs, specifically the masters in finance, which doesn't seem like a fit for me, which is okay. I went to go talk to some ECE profs who did some stuff I was somewhat interested in, but they were gone.
Once I finally headed out, I had this sickening knot in my stomach for a good hour or two. I'm no longer clear on what I'm going to do after graduation so it's time to figure that out ... again.
I don't want to be too long-winded about the trip, but I'm really happy with the way the trip turned out. I consistently found ways to save money without sacrificing anything (ie. finding low gas prices, hotel coupons, and talking to the ppl at the hotel and getting a discount). Though the main things (grad schools) didn't work out at all how I planned, all the little things worked out amazingly well including directions, finding people, and perhaps most of all, my ability to sit down and drive for long distances. I'm very proud of myself for being able to do this because I really wanted to prove to myself that I could do it. Speaking of which, I'm very grateful to have such a reliable and great car to drive around in. My white Camry is excellent.
When I got back after driving a good 1500 miles or so, I basically just passed out for 12 hours. Sleep is awesome.
and last but not least, Happy 20th Birthday Glenn!!!
