Just a quick relfection on my new year so far and what my plans are.
I got my UPF exam results two days ago and quite pleased. Investigacion de Mercados was my best subject overall, and Juegos de Empresa was also great as my team came first place in the business game, which boosted our grades. For Direccion Commercial, which was probably my favourite subject content-wise, I think looking back I should have spoken-up more in seminars as this let my grade down slightly. However, I am soon starting at ESADE, where my timetable is looking pretty horrific compared to Warwick, with 18 hours of uni crammed into 4 days a week, not including my volunteering!
Unfortunately I'm going to have to miss my very first ESADE lecture as I have an assessment centre with IBM that day, back in England. I think my lecturer won't mind though as he might even be an ex-employee given the module he teaches. I have never done a selection day before so I am nervous but equally looking forward to taking away some important lessons from the experience.
Before I embark upon my ESADE adventure I still have a jam-packed Euro-trip to get through! Me and a friend are going to cover Berlin, Budapest and Paris within a week, which means along with the Year Abroad Seminar, I'll have been in 6 countries in 2013!
But I'm not the only one jumping on a plane in March. Whilst I'm going to Italy for weekend with Warwick Business School, my mum is setting off for Peru to visit my poorly granddad. Neither of us has visited Peru in over 3 years so it is about time she finds out what is going on there - I'm quite jealous I won't be able to join her.
Other family news is that on Christmas Day my half-sister got engaged to her boyfriend of over 10 years, and my uncle/godfather to his girlfriend Harmeet. This means I will definitely get to go to a wedding in the near future as I've never been to one in my life! I would also love it if Dave and Harmeet could have an Indian style wedding (including an elephant) - do they have bridesmaids?
I'm flying to Barcelona tomorrow, so I must dash, as you can tell I'm a very busy bee at the moment!
30/01/2013 UPDATE: It appears the UPF marks have been moderated since I last looked at them and this has made my marks even better so I am super happy now!
