Old Note from Orientation Day at Business School


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 ๐Ÿ™‚

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

AS1788 Seattle to Los Angeles


Thought the Eskimo Smile would be bringing me down but found out it was Red Sir Richard Branson ๐Ÿ™‚

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.. ๐Ÿ™‚ Gonna miss the great entertainment system, fun & hipster safety video performance, and purple/blue neon lights in cabin.

5 Year Old MBA Resume

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!


Bye Atrica…. Another one in my past gets a new name… :)

Good or bad, I need to update my resume…

Maybe due to less ‘connection’ to New York, have never used Newark Airport but finally had a chance to land at there as the job interview location was in near the Newark airport in New Jersey.

Location was simply a river-across from Manhattan but never had a time to hop into NYC… so as it has always been, but next time.. ๐Ÿ™‚


Atrica. Inc.

Yes it is the company I interned during this summer.

I believe I had a great time here, first of all, learned valuable lessons during my MBA course.. and also the great opportunity to learn about technology company (both good and bad)

The most impressive thing I am taking in my heart is the fact this experience shed light on both what I really want to do and what I can really do. Thank you all for great experience, and I will do surely miss this place. (and the dynamic environment of Valley and beautiful weather)

Also, I wish this company will be successful in its future whereever it lands! ๐Ÿ™‚

As the great coach Hiddink said… So Long, and not good bye!
