You’d think by now I would have this whole “back to school” thing all figured out. Apparently not. When I got the syllabus for my Financial Analysis course on Monday I was overwhelmed by the amount of work that was due for Wednesday: chapters upon chapters of textbook reading, multi-part problem sets, and catching up with all financial current events. Accepting my fate, I hunkered down and tried to get through as much of it as I could. It wasn’t until I took a second look at the syllabus today during class that I realized that half of the work I did is actually due for Friday. Lesson learned: READ THE SYLLABUS. Union professors assign a ton of work, but they’re not that cruel!
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!
