A couple of my Instagram contacts participate in a monthly photo-a-day challenge quite regularly and every time I see their photos (once the month is well under way) I think – oh I should do that some day! Let’s be honest most of the time I’m more operating under the motto “Ain’t no body got time for that!” when it comes to self-imposed online chores (I will never be a level 100 FarmVille farmer…) but this is 31 days. I can do that! A fun project hopefully more than a chore! If you want to participate, Chantelle over here came up with the plan!
Today’s photo theme is “I BOUGHT THIS!”. Not having bought anything today made this one a bit challenging so I thought about what I had spent money on in the past that is still very significant for me…. My Coach purse that I got on super clearance (SCOOORE!) or my cute little German car that takes me to work every day came to mind. Even my sweet dog that I bought from a farmers couple. But in hind sight, some of the best dollars spent were on my MBA degree that brought me to North Carolina nine years ago.
My grad school experience has made me meet some of my dearest friends, introduced me to the wonderful city of Charlotte that I wouldn’t mind calling my forever home, given me tools to succeed in business, and last but not least has made getting my friggin‘ visas and hopefully eventual green card so much easier.
So yes, of course I would have preferred a free masters degree, but in hind sight, that was money well spent and in comparison to some other US grad school programs, that was actually pretty awesome deal. 🙂 Go Falcons!
