Right now and for the next two weeks I'm wrapping up my business, visiting with my friends around SF and LA and taking my dogs to the dog park as much as possible.

Right around 5 weeks from now I should be completing my drive to Charlottesville, getting set up in my apartment, and attending the start of orientation.

10 weeks, I guess I'll be knee deep in analyzing cases, starting to meet with recruiters, drinking beer and watching football.

It's so close I can feel it.

It's weird. Not too long ago, all of you guys/gals were freaking about acceptances and dings. In a few weeks, you guys will be well oiled bschool student-machines schmoozing with the big wigs for summer internships.

In a few weeks, I'll be starting (more specifically, delving deeply into apps) my bschool apps and will be going nuts waiting on decisions. I always thought all of you class of 09 were silly with the entire waiting process. But thinking ahead, I can feel my heart racing just imagining the waiting process.

Playing golf everyday, watching movies on HD and generally avoiding anything that makes me work. I am already settled in Durham. Enjoying the last few weeks before things go crazy again. Duke has sent us a ton of pre-term stuff to do. But for now, it is gathering dust. I interviewed with a top CPG company to attend their marketing summer camp and got selected. I will be spending a week at their headquarters at the end of this month.

I have shin splints and spent today queuing up for five hours on the pavement outside an embassy.

Preparing for selling our house - mostly on target.

Getting ready for a huge party at my place on Saturday -- you're all invited!

Busting my butt to get my work stuff squared away. I am a one-woman show, so I have to write out EVERYTHING I do, as they have yet to even open the search for my replacement. Hosers.

Squaring away our mortage - closing on a new place in Durham on July 25.

Avoiding the giant pile of to-do's that Duke sent me....maybe it will go away.

Funny thing. I planned on reviewing acctg/stats/econ so I would be well prepared for the core classes. I have done NOTHING! I am pretty much livin it up right now. In 2 weeks I will be done with work and moving into my apt in south bend, IN. 4 weeks (Aug 13th), orientation begins.

Now- working, packing, cancelling contracts and accounts.

In two weeks I'll still be working and canceling more contracts.

In five weeks I'll be resettling in the PacNW and throwing the pigskin at a few local BBQs with friends and classmates while sipping a few frosties before all hell breaks loose.

In ten weeks I'll be a full time MBA student. Honestly, it's a weird feeling; mainly excitement mixed with subtle flashes of intimidation.

First, 1 week at a Spa to relax and catch up with summer reading and prep. Then 1 week skiing. During that time I need to figure out how to sell some stuff, return my apartment and some other things.

Knee-deep in case reading and all sorts of MBA activities.

Right now, tackling all this pre-term crap Rice has sent me, bar tending and drinking (mostly at the same time!)

Off to Vegas in two weeks for a week, get back and immediately move to Houston.

5 Weeks, Pre-term starts! Seems like yesterday I was drafting my essays for application season
