Back to school

I envy envy envy women who enjoy pregnancy, the nausea-free ones. At the very least it seems like every pregnant woman should be able to enjoy eating! Sheesh. I can't wait for the second trimester. My friend was telling me that she vomited every day of her pregnancy, multiple times per day, which made severe daily nausea seem like a blessing in comparison.

In other news, full-time recruiting starts up in full force tomorrow. I'm actually looking forward to it. I feel that I am far more prepared to make recruiting work for me this year rather than feeling like a helpless hostage, desperate and afraid, in the process. I also received a few more heartening recruiting emails from the resume book (which I had assumed no worthwhile employers actually looked at) which made me feel slightly better about myself. It will still be a long road but I'm trying to enjoy it.

Classes start Thursday. I will be taking Financial Statement Analysis (30130), Taxes and Business Strategy (30118) and Financial Instruments (35100). This means I will end up with an Accounting concentration. I'm not entirely sure 30130 will be new news but Abbie Smith is a star and I didn't want to miss the course just in case ... Two accounting classes is a bit much in one quarter for my taste but I've heard reasonably good things about 30118 and, frankly, there were few classes I was very excited about taking this quarter anyway. And 35100 should be largely review. Veronesi declined to waive this prereq for me for his 35131 which I want to take this winter.
