What Happens to Your Weekend When You Are in Grad School Part-Time

This happens:

This weekend has been completely consumed by a 10-page strategy case paper plus a presentation. I think I’ve been working on this thing for the better part of the last 48 hours. Which means my food intake suffers: I had a salad from a local cafe for dinner last night, and for tonight, I’m eating the leftover salad bulked up with (dying) lettuce and grape tomatoes from the fridge.

It’s delicious and refreshing on a hot summer evening, yes, but it’s just not an ideal Sunday dinner. o_O

The redeeming feature is the beer, a fantastic farmhouse rye ESB from Long Trail. (I think this beer, and the style in general, is thoroughly underappreciated in the US!) Doing homework while drinking is one benefit of being an adult student. 😛

If all this sounds like I’m whining, I am, kind of, but I want to make it clear: I’m totally enjoying this, despite the sacrifices. The case is an interesting one, and I’m having a lot of fun slicing and dicing the information and synthesizing what we’ve learned in class and from all the readings to come up with a bullet proof strategy (well, at least that’s the idea). It’s a blast. Now back to work!
