Wow! My last post to this blog was on April 15, almost a month ago. During that time, my blog received an avergae of 65 page views per day, and last Wednesday it peaked at 113, the highest number of views I can remember! To me, this indicates that I have a loyal group of readers out there who follow this blog regularly, and who I have let down during the past few weeks. Don’t worry, I haven’t given up on my blog (yet ;-). I will try to post more regularly in the weeks to come.
The past few weeks have been intense: April 17 to 21 was Greek/Roman Week here on campus, which was a big success. I helped out a bit as well (remember, I have Greek roots), and was very happy to see how much the organizing team put in, even though our exams were less than a week away.
The following week saw three exams, and another three the week after. As always, it is difficult to predict how well I did (more so since we get relative, not absolute grades here at INSEAD), but I will find out on Friday when we get our grades for P2 (sorry, I will not be allowed to talk about them on my blog due to INSEAD’s non-disclosure policy on grades). On the weekend in between, I had a nice break as a few of my friends from university visited Paris for Labor Day weekend, and I joined them for an excellent dinner at one of my friend’s home on Saturday night. Christian and Carine, if you ever open your own restaurant (and I do encourage you to!), I would love to be both an investor and your best customer :-)
Immediately after the last exam, I took off to Greece with a few fellow classmates for the break, visiting Athens and Spetses, a tiny island in the Saronic gulf. We also met up with some more Greek classmates, and even joined the participants of a sailing trip from the July promotion for cocktails with local Alumni in Athens. It was nice to see so many familiar faces on this trip.
Back in Fontainebleau, I have just completed my first week of classes of P3, the third of my five two-month periods here at INSEAD. Classes are already in full swing again, half of which are electives, so it promises to be an interesting period.
I will try to post pictures of all these events in the next few days. Stay tuned, and thank you for your continued readership!
