Happy New Year

The first time I’m writing a blog on a new year’s day. Well wish you and me a Happy New Year. I don’t know if I have any plans but in case I do I will keep you posted. This seems too out of ordinary because everyone is doing something to be celebrating the new year. I’m anxious about it. I’m sure a lot of other people are too but everyone’s celebrating. Maybe this is what it means to look at the bright side of things… Celebrate when you know not where you are headed. Celebrate in a 24 hr/ 365 days/ 100 years simulation. Revel in the obnoxiousness of knowing nothing. Oh! this reeks of pessimism…

What can Under Armour do to change its misfortune?

So much for following earnings calls and a steady habit to post on my blog! I couldn’t convince and keep up to keep writing. I’m somewhere in the middle of my winter break. Hello again world! How is it going? I’ve grown up now. I listen to audio books, I talk about sustained competitive advantages and I try to create niches in the market by evaluating industry opportunities. No. I was just messing with you. I have learnt a lot in the past few weeks though. I had good experiences and I’m losing my skills because I’m not practicing enough.

Just writing one paragraph makes me feel this is good practice. Is it interesting to read haphazard thoughts? I don’t know. Tell me? Everything I read, more watch, these days has so much structure. Everything is carefully organized and curated to garner more followers. I remember when I was younger if ever I came across interesting content it would stay with me. When I started reading the first few pages of Infinite Jest it stayed with me. I was daunted by the size of the book but it stayed with me. Now, not so much. Every time I come across some (read any) content I am not stimulated. I’m not sure because I’m now numbed down or because everything is shiny and bright (read curated).

If you’re still wondering why I have that title you’re in the right place. It’s just that my thoughts veer between things and I had many other things to say before talking about a company I admire. Now I want to talk about that company but I also want to stay honest and stay true to what I’ve said above. These thoughts are haphazard.

Idea for the day: It would be better if WordPress organized and pushed out updates. Maybe it already does. This is modern soliloquy.

Back Up?

This blog like everything else I have done in life is quite intermittent. I would like to restart. Yes, hello world!

MBA school is going fine. Hectic? Yes! One week to go with the first semester. Have I learnt stuff? Absolutely! Would I recommend an MBA? Depends! What does my day look like today? Almost like a very typical MBA day: I’m visiting an employer for a “site visit”. Have to get some homework done. Have to prepare for my finals next week. Am I slacking? Yes. Do I have to keep my spirits up and keep pounding? YES!
