Thanks to Grant we have a few pictures of the ‘blizzard’ that hit London earlier this week. The most notable thing about this picture isn’t the dusting of snow. It’s that there’s no scaffolding on the front of the building. Very nice.
The weather in New York went from decent to damn cold this week. Looking at the weather, it’s 25 degrees F (negative something in Celsius) with temperatures increasing today and next week.
The first week of classes at NYU went fairly well, but things have yet to start really heating (dare I say
hotting) up until February since 60% of my classes are at night. I’ve never liked night classes but most of the classes that seemed interesting (Competitive Strategy, Managerial Skills and Pricing Strategy) were all after dark.
One of the things that I do like about NYU Stern is the ability to add and subsequently drop classes during the first couple weeks. This feature, accept for an act of the Queen unavailable at LBS, allows students to see if they like the class and if the professor is good. The game is played differently with this feature because one signs up for 5 classes, then picks the best 4 rather than just finding and hoping the 4 they’ve chosen works out for the best.
I don’t feel required to have a real end to this riff since I’ll probably post more than once today. Until then, happy skiing or shivering.
