Happen to found an old note I took during MBA orientation session back in Ann Arbor like 15 years ago, while cleaning up the shelf.. – This note even has a coffee cup mark 🙂
I don’t even recall what the professor’s name was (because I recall he was mentioning he is moving to Tuck school after the orientation session) but this notes stroke me for a min. especially the first line of “Live a dream”
Making me think maybe the most important thing at business school is already learned at orientation days
이사준비 과정에서 짐정리하는 와중에 발견한 MBA Orientation Session note – 15년전으로 타임머신을 타고 돌아갔다왔다..기억으로는 이건 전체 session이 아니고 개별 section session이었는데 하필 다른 학교로 떠나는 교수님이 마지막 일로 진행하는 session – 지금도 -교수님 성함도 기억안나는게 안타깝긴하지만- 이 수업에 왜인지 모를 울림이 아직도 생생했는데 Dream으로 시작해서 그랬나보다..
결국 나에게는 모든게 고난의 행군 여정이었던 MBA 과정 – 어여 강산이 한번 반이 바뀌었지만, 기억에 남는건 이런거 구나 싶기도 하고 이때 꿈꿨던 모습으로 살고 있는지 궁금하다.
노트 한가운데 떡하니 있는 Coffee Mark에 진한 커피한잔이 땡겨 쭈욱들이키며 다시 읽어보았다..ㅎㅎ
Thought the Eskimo Smile would be bringing me down but found out it was Red Sir Richard Branson 🙂
At the end this happen to be the first time of flying in Virgin America almost after 10 years since last time – believe I took Virgin once when it launched in Seattle, and also believe this might be highly likely the last red flight I might take as they are about to be rebranded as Alaska.. 🙂 Gonna miss the great entertainment system, fun & hipster safety video performance, and purple/blue neon lights in cabin.
엥 Alaska인줄 알고 예약했는데 공항에 와보니 Virgin이네…Virgin이 Seattle에 처음 취항했을 때 타본게 마지막이니 대략 10년만인듯.. 비행기는 이제 많이 낡았지만 훌륭한 -미국 국내선에선 볼수 없는- 훌륭한 엔터테인먼트 시스템, 눈을 뗄수 없는 안전시연 비디오, 화려한 형광색 조명도 이제는 역사의 뒤안길로 사라질듯 싶다.
Alaska나 Virgin이나 저가항공은 아니지만 저가항공의 Operation 교과서와 같은 단일 기종 비행사인데.. Alaska는 Boeing 737, Virgin은 전부 Airbus 320. 꿀꺽한 회사의 정책을 따라가는 M&A를 볼때 Virgin의 흔적들은 조만간 다 사라질듯… 아 MBA 전략 수업시간에 배운 Southwest case는 첫수업이어서 아직도 생생하다.. 🙂
해지는 광경을 보며 운전하는 순간 예전 MBA시절 인턴하러 갈때 지나갔던 길의 추억이 떠올라 감정이 정말 울컥해졌다. 무식해서 용감하고, 용감해서 잃을것 없고, 잃을 것 없어 지른다고, 남들 다 말리는 쉽지 않은 – 인생에 어마어마한 영향을 미친 – 결정을 내리고 인턴 한답시고 가방 2개 짊어지고 떠나던 길에 지났던 경치가 거의 만 9년만에 눈앞에 펼쳐졌다.
시간은 흘러 근 10년이 다 되어가고, 그 때 홀로 똥차 검둥이 몰고 가던길을 가족을 대동하고 지나가니 감회가 새롭고, 한 편 겁없던 그때가 떠올랐다. 단, 10년이 지나도 달라진게 별로 없다는건 함정..
While cleaning up the room I end up finding my 5 year old resume…which took me to a short jouney of memories of business school years.
Yes everything happened there was beautiful and I had a big dream…don’t know exactly where I am sitting now vs. that dream. However, one sure things is the fact I became a little more grown up since then!I still miss my life in Ann Arbor!

Everything has arrived in Seattle in perfect manner exact shape except one stuff Missed In Action. That one stuff being our mattress.. -_-;;
After endless calls to here and there, talking to these and those people, we found out…..
1) The mattress did not have a tracking sticker! (Dope!!!!)
2) However, was shipped to Seattle, but not included in final delivery because of not having tracking number.
Then, we found out that poor mattress traveled back around the US and finally is located at Orlando!! The other side of this country!! Ah!!
So this is the picture I got to confirm whether this is mine or not, and finally I said Yes with tears (^^)
Looks like it will take 2 weeks again to have it but welcome back to home my lovely mattress..
