It’s been way too long since the last post. I have to admit that I have been a lazy bum but at the same time I was extremely busy. Contradictory statement? I know but isn’t life all about contradictions? Well without sprinkling some more confusing statements on you let me elucidate what actually happened.
I was in the midst of doing my ‘summer internship’ as a part of my MBA. I had my 2nd sem exams in the month of April and as soon as they ended I had to hit the road for the project. You are right, not a single day of rest in between, straightaway I embarked upon my journey to ‘2nd adulthood’, if one may call it so. I was livid at the mere thought of not been able to enjoy some days of rest after the exams but couldn’t help it as the schedule shaped up to the contrary.
This was two and a half months ago. And now that I have finished my project, made my ppt-presentation, done all the number crunching, battled correlation & weighted average single handedly and finally submitted the project report, I suddenly appreciate how important these last few months have been for me. I have realized that at the end of the day it’s all about managing people. I have realized that bosses value your work more than your grades and that they can (sometimes) be nice too! I have understood the value of team- work. And these are some realizations which hopefully would stay with me for long.
P.S. the word ‘colour’ is mentioned in the title because I did my project from a paint company. And ‘chocobar’ pertains to the fact that I celebrated its completion by feasting on 5 chocobars (it’s a normal practice for me).
