I worked a bit in reservations for a company that did shuttles back and forth between my town and the Salt Lake City airport. That was a seasonal job that ended in March, and then I switched over to Ralph Lauren, where I've been for the majority of the past 12 months. It's an interesting feeling to realize that it's been almost a full year since I met most of these people and that we're coming almost to the point where we can say, "Remember this time last year, when..."
Sometime in the next few months to a year, I'm going to transition to a new job, the firstfruits of all the hard work and effort I've put in over the past year to get to this point. That's something that will play its course; I need not rush it. For now, I am just so proud of myself for all the progress I've made in the past twelve months. Going to Georgetown and paying for Georgetown were mature decisions that required a lot of discipline, courage, and sacrifices.
One year later, I'm still feeling confident that I made the right choice, selecting this program over other schools. I looked very closely at the Master of Science in Finance programs at Hopkins, Utah, Vanderbilt, MIT, and Princeton. There were parts of each program that were a good fit for me, but this is the program that was, overall, most appropriate for me at the time. The people, in particular, are one of Georgetown's greatest strengths. I appreciate both the classmates and the professors and staff that I have met.
What I hope I can know and appreciate is that I have so much to be proud of in terms of how I have grown and developed over the past year. I'm well on track toward those goals I have set about getting my life together and being a Wall Street banker in New York by age 30. I hope to keep up the good work.
