September 11 – October 1
Back to school! My last year at Kellogg is shaping up to be a great one so far. Not only do my classes seem more than manageable (at least as of now), I have huge gaps in my daily schedule which are perfect for writing and reading. While I haven’t written anything noteworthy in the last month, I have been marathoning through my reading list (mostly in preparation for Viable Paradise – two weeks away!)
My last first day of school:
I’ve also officially signed my offer to return to Facebook, and I could not be more excited! I requested a bit of a late start date in order to free up my July / August for Clarion (which I will be applying to in December). My team approved the September start but for a date a little later than I wanted (9/17). When I mentioned this to Ry he suggested we use the few extra weeks to get married (<— yep, that’s how he said it).
So, even though we aren’t officially engaged yet, we’ve already started planning a Labor Day wedding. Honestly, the lack of romance doesn’t bother me – I really like the idea of getting married before starting work. That way we can just enjoy our time with family without me being a total stress pot. So far, wedding planning has been going like this:
Mom: Sydney, what do you think about X
Mom: And what about Y
Is there an opposite of a bridezilla?
Also, looks like the wedding will be in the same venue I had my Bat Mizvah – circle of life?
Last exciting update: Nancy and Kiki got a puppy! Excited to meet Gator over Thanksgiving!
My next post will be after VP – can’t wait to share how the week goes!
