What costs you a lot of money for 2 years, changes the way you think, and makes you question whether the risk was worth taking?
First two years of marriage.
Ok that was a silly joke, but I bet you thought the answer was MBA. This is what happens when you eat, live, and breathe MBA, and are so consumed by it that it begins to rule your life. Researching the MBA programs and trolling the forums become not just your favourite hobby but also an obsession. Now that this stage is almost over for me, I’m trying to make the most of the time I have before school begins. However there are a lot of things to be taken care of first, arranging the funds and getting my F1 visa being the priority. I hope I can complete that process and get the visa by early May to be sure of heading for an MBA before I finally put in my papers at work.
My mind will be on a vacation this week and not think about the MBA. I’ve been strict with my blog with every post so far having MBA as the theme, and thats a rule I don’t intend to break. Despite the urge to discuss movies. Cos trust me, its not easy for me to stop once I get started with the movies. So I’ll digress just once and leave you with the following recommendations if you’re interested in movies outside the Hollywood –
– Waltz with Bashir – simply amazing. Have never seen an animated movie before that’s as powerful in its impact, and I’ve seen some. Its a movie about the horrors of war, and the only time the visuals shift from animation to reality will leave you gasping. Rates extremely high on style and narration.
– Children of Heaven – a trademark Majid Majidi movie where the style lies in its simplicity. Not his best but one of them.
– In the mood for love – Wong Kar Wai is one of my favourite directors and I hope he continues to make more such movies. Arty and not for everyone, but if you like this one, we share our movie tastes.
–City of God – I hope you’ve seen this one, and if not, do so now! It doesn’t get better than this and is definitely on my top ten list of all times.
So until next week, when it will resume its preoccupation with all things MBA, wish my mind a happy vacation!
