Stressed, but also now registered for summer school.

Well that was fun. At around 10:20am I realized that I did not get up at 5am to register for summer school. The great news though is that I managed to get both of the classes I wanted, filled out all of the proper forms, and registered for student housing. I will be taking two classes this summer (one class in the first half of the summer and another class in the second half). They are:

Financial Management of Nonprofit Organizations
International Business and Global Economic Systems

Both give me full graduate level credit and apply towards my degree, but just as important, neither have class on Friday! I would actually like to sign up for more classes as I believe I can handle more than one per session, but they limit you to only one class per half-summer. Unfortunately, in the ensuing panic of trying to register, I accidentally put the entire cost of the summer semester plus housing on my credit card all at once even though full payment is not due until June 1. Not really a problem other than I just missed out on four more months of putting that money to work for me, which is too bad, but nothing I can do about it now.

I'm dreaming of Boston summers now. It should be interesting because I think they try to pair up people from different parts of the world who don't know each other before hand and don't speak the same native language, so I am likely to have a roommate from another country, which will be pretty cool. I will really be exposed to many different cultures this year. I'm already getting a little taste of it in my current classes. You can go down a row of six kids in my marketing class and four of them will be from a different non-English speaking country. It makes the normally routine class dialog much more interesting as they share different perspectives.

Okay, back to chores. I have the day off from work today, so I am frantically trying to finish up the paperwork to get fully registered as an investment adviser (couple of loose ends to tie up), and I'm trying to build the website for Citadel while I listen to my lecture.
