Last week I started classes for Winter quarter. I'm taking Global Management, Global Strategy, and Multinational Finance. I'm glad to finally be taking internationally-focused classes, but part of me just wants school to be over already. Only six more months.
Wedding plans are going quickly too. Erin and I already have a place and date for the wedding, a color theme (sunflowers set against a vibrant blue), a website which will have more information to come (http://www.ewedding.com/sites/ErinAndMyron), and a photographer picked out. Our current joke is since we first met while speed dating we figured we should take a similar approach to wedding planning.
One of the best parts of this week was that I got a chance to see the Mexican Rodeo Extravaganza out at the National Western Association's annual stock show. Each year the World Trade Center gets sponsors to support a dinner reception before the rodeo and this year I was able to score a ticket. Along with the good networking experience with local business leaders, the rodeo was an exciting spectacle.
You can see pictures of the event here. There were Mexican dancers, a mariachi band, bucking broncos, rodeo clowns, bull riding, sheep riding for the kids (hilarious), bull riding (one even went over a fence), rope/lasso art, and just when I thought there couldn't be more they had a pair of matadors face off against a bull (without hurting it). All in all it was a really fun event.
