Notice the haircut? I will never forget the time [...]

Oh! The in betweens!

This is something Simon, commented on to me previous post. I felt it deserve a post for its length (sorry, Simon! you do go on for long!) and relevance (that’s why its here)
Everything does have its phases. I used to think I would eventually reach a kind of plateau in life where everything would be [...]

Not sleepy

Then and Now….Evolution of an MBA

Another semester draws to a close. It would be too clichéd to say ; ‘Time Flies’. One year and life has totally changed. There is nothing common between what was then and what is now. it’s a good exercise to try and figure out how things have changed.
My waist was 31, now its 34!
I was [...]
