Oxford MBA

🤩 My 50th post! 🤩 The end of Hell-ary is in sight…sleepless nights and making it onto the Dean’s list…

04:35 seems like the best time to finish this book 😂

Half-way through assessments fortnight and we have handed in our GOTO report and presentation slides ahead of the actual presentation tomorrow; completed our “Capitalism in Debate” debate on whether the Alliance for Automobile Innovation should be allowed to lobby the US government; and I built a financial model for our Entrepreneurial Project. So all in all, a successful week.

Having said that, it was all done on minimal sleep and maximum caffeine intake! As you can see, Monday morning at 04:35 I started reading my book and once I had it finished (finally!) I just carried on about my day. It’s amazing how much you can get done at that time in the morning when no one else is around.

It’s been a full on week, as alongside all of those activities I’ve had to think about the Business Finance exam (which I only really started prepping for this weekend); the presentation we have to give tomorrow afternoon and the 3,000 report that is due at the end of the week.

In other news (and very positive in both cases), the MBA team released the “Dean’s List” on Monday. This is a list of the top 15% in the class (out of 311 people), based on our performance from last term. I think there were only 11 or 12 women who made it on to the list, and I was (amazingly!) one of them. So that was a nice piece of news to get on Monday evening.

Then on Wednesday morning I made a trip to the hospital to get my ankle x-rayed. I’d like to thank Covid-19 for the short wait time at the radiology department; I was in and out in less than 30 minutes, which pre-Covid times would be unheard of. And the great news is that there are no stress fractures or hairline fractures on my ankle bone. The bad news is I don’t know what is actually causing the pain, but with more rest this week (and lots of biking) it does seem to be getting better (touch wood – I don’t want to jinx it!!) Fingers crossed for my running return this week…

I’ve had some long days in the Business School this week, but I’m not complaining as it’s so nice that we are allowed to go back and work there. This week I’ll just be at home, as I find it easier to revise here and I don’t get distracted by seeing people! However once this week is over, I’m looking forward to six-person picnics in the park and a nice, long, relaxing Easter holiday!

Bring. It. On.

P.S. I also made it as a Silent Hero again this week 🙌🏻 thank you Mr or Mrs Anonymous ☺️
