MBA Candidate!

I couldn’t sleep that night. I just kept tossing and turning. It was as if I was waiting for something to happen. Then something did.

My phone buzzed.

Any other night, I would just ignore it and force myself to sleep. But that night I picked it up and I’m glad I did! It was a nicely written email from the SFU MBA Admissions team letting me know that I have been accepted to their program!

I jumped out of bed right away and called my mom (she was in Vancouver, so it was her morning). I then texted EP and a few of my other friends. We were all celebrating the fact that I will be coming home to Vancouver, not as much the fact I got accepted to MBA. Haha! The responses I got from Facebook was immense though. I don’t want to sound cocky or anything but I am so very thankful to have such supportive group of friends that want me to be successful.

It truly is an incredible feeling to have that much support from others. But.. yes, there’s a but.

I am a little sad and concerned that I would have to leave the hotel for 1.5 years. Life is so funny isn’t it? Just a few months ago, I wanted to have a way out. Now that I have my “way out”, I don’t really want to leave. I am getting used to the hotel life and to the work that I’m scared that if I leave, I would have to start from the beginning again when I come back. Maybe I am just chickening out thinking about the amount of homework I would have to do. I was never a good student. I procrastinated often when I was in school. But I know this time it would be different.

I know I would come out from the MBA program a better, a more skilled leader. I look forward to enhancing my business and analytical skills. I want to make better decisions. I want to lead my staff with empathy and wisdom.

Yours sincerely,

MBA Candidate (Can I call myself that already? Is it too early? It just sounds so cool!)
