It has been a rough ride, but the ride ended today. I won't mention that I was THROWN from the vehicle, I had my face driven over, and the vehicle backed up and went forward again and again just driving me into the ground. Whatever. It's all done.
I don't remember exams in college ever being this hard or this intense. I felt like we didn't have enough time to study, and somehow, at the same time, the exams went on forever! Six classes is a LOT!
After not studying that effectively this morning (and not studying at all last night...), I took my last exam - Operations. It was hard. I have never really left an exam early. I feel like I can always go back and check calculations, review answers, improve...something. Today, though, at twenty to four, when I still had twenty minutes left, I had to leave. I couldn't go through any more answers, and I left...
And then I started to drink. We had an ice sculpture that said INSEAD and something else, and it was a vodka luge. It was like a bar mitzva. Our dean did a shot on the ice luge. That was a personal highlight. Our very own class band played, and we drank. And drank, and it felt so good. I couldn't stop smiling.
After that, and a quick visit to a party, my group went to dinner - the last time we were together as a group. We went to Korean barbecue. I ate a lot of pork. The pork was so good. So tasty. All the little dishes were superb as well. It was really nice to hang out with them, and in the end, we were so good together. I will see them all again, but I'll miss our dynamic and all of our times together. For P3 Brian will be in Fonty, for P4 I will be in Wharton (unless I have to retake any of my P2 classes!), and P5 Luis will be in Fonty.
After that we went to the INSEAD party, and though I really don't usually like these, it was so much fun. I loved dancing to Vanilla Ice and "Push It" and just feeling so happy.
THEN - the weirdest thing happened. It was about 12:30, and I was walking by the pool to our door, and there was this couple sitting having a beer. It turns out that the guy is starting at INSEAD in January! So random.
