I have fond memories of this time of year in Virginia. As the weather would cool and it would feel more like autumn, I would be consumed by the excitement of heading back to school and . . . the football season! The weekend ritual was wonderful:
Friday night: high school football under the friday night lights!
Saturday morning: drag myself out of bed, tend wounds from the previous night, and watch game films with the rest of the team at school
Saturday afternoon: chores and homework
Saturday night: date or night out with the guys
Sunday: excursion to the orginal Red Hot & Blue BBQ in Roslyn with Mom and Nick, listening to great blues in the car
Those were great times! And, although I’m missing out on the football and BBQ here in Lausanne, the weather is definitely cool and I have Buddy Guy playing in the background as I work on my career search. Life is good!
Yesterday was my interview with Shell, although it was less of an interview and more of an assessment. They’re less gung ho about renewables than I would have hoped, but I think there may still be a fit. I’ll find out this evening whether or not I’ve been invited to the second round, which will be a much more intense group assessment.
Today I’m talking with Google, practicing for Thursday’s case interview with British Telecom, and discussing opportunities in Italy with IMD’s corporate development staff. And probably playing some ping pong too!
