Well – the final countdown is going on for the Class of 2010 – we’re almost there, walking across the stage to receive our degrees. Still hard to believe. My regalia got delivered yesterday – graduation is becoming more real as I look at the black fabric. Final papers are being turned in, exams feverishly studied for, and party plans are being made. I’m looking forward to spending time with my classmates celebrating at the graduation party in San Francisco the day after the ceremony, and at the class trip to Vegas the following weekend. My parents are also flying over from Australia to be there, and I have a celebratory dinner planned with colleagues/friends who have supported me along the way towards completing my MBA. I know many other families are planning various celebrations – its definitely a time of reflecting on all that we’ve achieved, learnt and got out of the program, and being there with friends from along the way.
