Out West

This weekend was a whirlwind of Haas activities at Cal. I am still
struggling with the sum of money that I turned down at the very good
MBA school darden. But this weekend helped me realize that if there
is a place where I belong, its probably at Berkeley. I never thought
I would really say that, but it is true. There are just a bunch of
really cool people who lack the arrogance that I have detected from
other MBA programs.

This being a transitory journey, naturally I consider my life's
travels. And the travelling lately has been rough. An email from dan
(chappy) says that his insurance company is not going to pay my helo
bill. Couple the aweful travelling in Europe with my flight here
(delayed and lost luggage), I would be lying if I said I were not a
little concerned. I jump forward anyway.

Haas has a ton of connections on the west coast and boast a very
strong real estate program and prob the strongest embracing of
innovation and entrepreneurship in the world. So, just like my
decision to Annapolis, I know this one will turn out fine too.

Funny, my flight out of ca is delayed (I am tapping this blog posting
out from my phone in the airport).

So I am very excited about suffering in some hard core racing this
summer. Then, I'll need to concentrate on findng some roomates and
house near Berkeley where I can relax yet still ride a bike to school.

I need to find $120k somewhere too. So if any of you know someone
really rich, let me know.

I have always found great satisfaction in solving problems and I am
trying to equate this process to one big challenge with lots of
opportunity. It is. And I plan to have a lot of fun on the way.
Just like this pic below.
