Sunny Day

Its a beautiful sunny day outside. The temperature is probably in the mid fifties, and some of the hibernating squirrels have started scurrying around campus. Spring is heading this way, and that is awesome as I hate winter more than I fear fear.

Days like today are the ones that convince crazy people to go be hermits and live in the wild, scavenging berries and hunting deer and raccoons. I desperately wish I was outside enjoying the respite from bleary gray skies and cold wind, but I'm not. I'm stuck staring at this stupid computer for another five hours today.

Anyhow, if you can't tell, the stress of life is catching up a bit and I'm stuck without a day off this weekend.

The accounting exam I took last Thursday ended up being screwed up, like I thought. The professor explained that he will grade each exam and that he will be lenient because of the switchup in dates. I am hoping this rescues my grade into something workable, but I still think he ought to just give the exam again.

This past week was fairly uneventful. I didn't get a project all the way done on Monday, and I'm hoping I haven't torpedoed auditing for the semester. Our team paper we turned in on Tuesday should be better than the first one from Managerial, but we'll see.

Otherwise, there are no exams, papers, projects, or presentations this week, but a couple next week... so I have some group meetings to attend.

I have interviews coming up next week with Ingersoll Rand, S.C. Johnson, and MassMutual. I am really hopeful on the SC Johnson interview, although Racine wouldn't be ideal, its still essentially Chicago. My problem is I want San Diego weather and Chicago location... I doubt thats gonna happen.

Anyhow, with my wish to be enjoying nature, I looked up this verse:

Isaiah 55
8 "For my thoughts are not your thoughts,
neither are your ways my ways,"
declares the Lord.

9 "As the heavens are higher than the earth,
so are my ways higher than your ways
and my thoughts than your thoughts.

10 As the rain and the snow
come down from heaven,
and do not return to it
without watering the earth
and making it bud and flourish,
so that it yields seed for the sower and bread for the eater,

11 so is my word that goes out from my mouth:
It will not return to me empty,
but will accomplish what I desire
and achieve the purpose for which I sent it.

12 You will go out in joy
and be led forth in peace;
the mountains and hills
will burst into song before you,
and all the trees of the field
will clap their hands.

13 Instead of the thornbush will grow the pine tree,
and instead of briers the myrtle will grow.
This will be for the Lord's renown,
for an everlasting sign,
which will not be destroyed."
