It’s a Thursday night, and I’m in my hotel room on a business trip. I’m trying to finish a take-home test for my Global Macroeconomics class, but I can’t focus because my phone keeps sending me notifications from the Goizueta Class of 2019 Facebook group.

Congratulations! You’ve been accepted and like most of us you’re thinking “now what?” Fret not, this feeling is mutual.

But while I’m not truly sure what I’m getting myself into, these are the things that I plan on doing for the next couple of months until I start school and once I’m in my first term. Enjoy the free time: that blissful time...
