Remember that roommate you had back in college? The one you were going to keep in touch with forever, even after graduation? It's only been a year and you've only seen each other once. What happened?
Maybe that friend signed up for MBA school after graduation. Chances are, she'd love to spend some time with you catching up, learning about your new career, life in Corporate America, and all about the new Romeo in your life.
But MBA school takes up an awful lot of time. She's ready to be done with school and ready to start building a career of her own, too, but, as you always told her, she's such a stickler for doing things according to the book. And in this case, the books in question stack up all the way to the ceiling.
Time in MBA school seems to disappear. If the plan is to write ten more pages, complete an outline, or finish this one last case study before calling it a night, it's not unlikely that the studying will continue until the morning alarm clock rings and the sun starts to rise.
Many students attending MBA school complain of being so deeply immersed in studies they develop a sense of isolation from their friends and family. Think of how nice it would be if you could find some way to continue the friendship in small but very appreciated ways, all the while knowing your friend is undergoing a very intense but very temporary moment in life.
MBA school is expensive as well as time consuming. Many students complain of never getting enough to eat - too much time and money involved. They often lose weight.
Having lunch together or going to some hot spot for dinner is fun but many people in MBA school find these activities can get them off track and it can sometimes be hard to get back in focus. Why not pick up a meal to go from her favorite restaurant, maybe even a bottle of wine to go with it, and drop it off at her house? This can be fun catch-up time without all the fuss of getting dressed and going somewhere.
Or perhaps you could help your friend in MBA school with the laundry or the cleaning. Chores left undone have a way of draining one's energies for other activities so this might be a truly appreciated way to lift her spirits in several ways.
Get in touch with your friend in MBA school. She'd probably love to hear from you. And maybe you can start planning a really cool vacation to take together once she's graduated and has some time to play.
