My macroeconomics course is a lot of work. Between reading the textbook, reading supplementary notes, reading more notes online for the powerpoints, doing individual and group homework assignments, the occasional short-notice quiz, combing through the Wall Street Journal, and keeping up with modern economic news, I’m pretty much swamped. It doesn’t help that the course has a quasi-historical spin on it (because it is macro after all) considering that history has never been my forte. Also, for better or for worse I adore my entertaining Turkish professor and refuse to let him down/show any signs of weakness. I told my parents that I wanted to push myself this term, but I guess you really do have to be careful what you wish for!
I am a senior in college who will be off in the wonderful world of finance come July. While my resume passions include scrupulously watching economic indicators and reading the Wall Street Journal, I could just as happily spend all day reading blogs and sharing my passion for food, fashion, and fun. I chew too much gum and probably write too many lists. I know I don't know everything just yet, but TheGarnetLetter is the beginning of my little thank you note to the wonderful world!
