Yesterday was a bittersweet day in the life of Karen with a K. This semester I'm in a business plan class, namely engineering entrepreneurship 2 (I'm minoring in entrepreneurship by the way). We began the course by pitching ideas, 6 were chosen, and we formed teams of 5 people to begin developing them into a viable business. This class is known for being the class with the highest work load of the engineering school. Our teacher even made us sign a contract that we realized that and promising that we would not withdrawal after the first class.
Viva la StimuLITE!
So, I spent a lot of time with my group. And I've never had a group that I've enjoyed working with as much as I have been. Everyone does what needs to be done for the most part. No one is nagging me to do stuff or over-reminding me about everything like other groups who will not be named. Our personalities mesh, it has been a good time. I could see us making a good team in a real company setting down the road. I have never had an entirely good group before in a group project and I think I finally found one.
Moreover, I spent a lot of time with other groups, watching them present their ideas every week – seeing things take shape (Developing crushes on nameless nerdy engineers).
Yesterday was the culmination of the semester. We all presented our plans in front of a team of investors. And we were all so good. Every group was spot on – giving the best performance that they have all year. I was proud of us all. Despite how hot with nervousness I was taking on the panel's questions (they really grilled MY team….), I'm really going to miss that class (especially the free Hawaiian pizza).
Now all that is left is the shouting – aka a huge amount of writing. But don't worry, there's an after party a week from today. Just got to make it to then!
