An earth-shattering life change: I’m going to do an MBA.
It’s now two months since the first dark thought of switching off the Work light for a while appeared. I’ve attended half a dozen Open Days up and down the country, made several applications and had several interviews, written countless essays, and studied/sat the pre-entrance GMAT exam. I’ve endured eye-popping incredulity from academics who couldn’t quite comprehend that someone who dropped out of school at 16 might actually be capable of learning. I’ve enjoyed gut-busting laughter with mad bastards willing to take a chance.
I now have two offers with another interview still to go, so it’s now very likely I’ll be taking a year out for a degree starting Oct or so. Finally, my old Mum will get to attend a graduation ceremony, 15 years late. Chris the High School dropout is going to business school.
Forecast for later: airborne porcines and a dramatic temperature drop in a fictional afterlife for non-good people.
