RING RING RING!! The alarm clock goes off...my worst enemy! It's 8am, which means time to start the race. I have exactly one hour to get to class. I shower, get dressed, get my things and leave in a rush while I am practically washing my teeth and brushing my hair. I stop by Starbucks or DoEat for my morning coffee...the first one of the day. I wonder how many I will have today... Then comes the classes, one class, two and three. By 3 pm I am done with classes for the day, but now I have a conference in an hour, 3 projects for this week and 5 readings for tomorrow. It sounds hectic and, let me tell you, it is! IT IS CRAZY!! It is ridiculously crazy but incredibly fun.
I have come to think that the success of a masters comes from the craziness it brings to its students. It is not a matter of studying, memorizing, doing exams...it's a matter of managing your time! Projects, conferences, master cups, presentations...all in one day! And you still need to have time to eat something! Thank God for the toooonns of vending machines at IE.
I have 49 other people in my class who I spend the entire day with, laughing, studying, drinking... anything goes!! 50 students from all around the globe spend every day together at IE studying and almost every night together around town.
It has been a month at IE, and even though it has been non-stop and stressful as hell, it has also been one of the best month in my life!! As the say at IE...it's my time to "go beyond"!
