New Found Love

I wish I was smarter, and limericks would come more naturally to me. As with all new found loves, these days I am obsessing over how awesome they are - scanning webpages for the cool ones, scratching brain cells for the inspiration to strike.

For starters,

There was a young lady named Bright
who traveled much faster than light.
She set out one day
in a relative way,
and came back the previous night.

Hawking’s "Brief History of Time"
is such a relief! How sublime
that time, in reverse,
may un-write this verse
and un-spend my last thin dime!

Okay, if you're not relatively curious:

To his friend, Ned said, rather blue,
"My wife Edith just told me we're through,
For she says I'm too fat."
And his friend told him that,
"You can't have your cake and then, have Edith, too."

C'mon writer's block, you can't do that to me all the time.

A wonderful summer at Mylan!

It took me a while to get myself to write, but here's my authentic thank you for an amazing summer. I enjoyed every bit of it. Cheers to a good summer internship, an awesome team, and overall, a great learning experience. 

Dedicated to the North America Strategy Team, Mylan: Jeff May, James Wu, Alejandro Sola, Doug Donaldson, Andy Fang, Chris Hartley, Heather Martin, Andrew Maston, Dan Spice, Greg Schaap and my fellow intern, Alice Toy :)

And I thought... "Yay, Week 1"
A wonderful summer has just begun
Let's knock down this case study's core,
And soon we'll get to Phase II and more!

And I thought... "Alright Week 3"
Now we're thinking and this is fun,
Weaving a story and telling it through,
Wasn't something that I had done

And I thought... "Welcome Week 5"
Phase I is now almost done
Just gotta make this slide look nice,
Lets add sugar, we've got spice!*

And I thought.. the weeks flew by,
The last few slides did come undone
With frameworks, trail-runs, beer and NALT**
My days at Mylan were coming to a halt

And I thought.. I owe you one,
For all the good times,
and all the good thought,
'cz turn up we may, but turn down for what. 

* pun intended

Say Something

I'm giving up on you:

I'm giving up on writing. I haven't been saying anything for a while. I don't know if this is just a me-thing but I need little interstices of free time (in between chunks of not a minute to waste stuff to do) to be able to appreciate time.. think, write and publish. I've been trying 5 minute poetry (think 2-minute noodles), but clearly its not happening (though I must say that I am getting better. That makes me feel good, I like productivity!)

Anyway, school never allowed time to ponder - and I've also been kind of surprised by the sheer volume and nature of change over the past few months. Not only has business school brought about a change in routine, but people have also brought about a change in perspective. Just like coal turns to diamond under pressure - people have changed color, texture and substance under pressure, not always in a good way. Basically I think, we're all stoned (pun-intended).

A few Minis Ago..

Situation: Social gathering and Mini 1 - I'm feeling good about the whole "prioritization is the key" aspect of MBA. So far, so good.

Task: Good conversations


"Many-a-beers down, they smiled
It's only just begun
Wait and watch what happens,
When M3 interviews come."

Result: Reminiscences.
