The Last Two Weeks!
It's the final two weeks of summer session two. The last two weeks of the quarter always seems to drag out. When you think you are almost done and can breathe a sigh of relief, you realize you actually still have one more week left of classes.
The I-Center Entrepreneur Incubator class has only reinforced my appreciation of attending Robert Morris University for offering a great class.
The Entrepreneur incubator class was one I really wanted to take when I first learned of its offering. I thought this would be a really cool class to take and learn if I have what it takes to pursue entrepreneurial opportunities later down the road. I think most people dream of being their own bosses and running their own companies but many don’t flourish. I figured this class would help gage if I am capable of pursing something on my own.
From this class, I can honestly say that I have learned a lot about myself and about trying to see an idea come to fruition. As my instructor has emphasized "You" are your greatest asset and when you have a sense of who you are and how you work best, only then can you utilize both your skills and weaknesses to pursue a problem and its solution.
The I-Center Entrepreneur Incubator class took me outside of my comfort zone and really challenged me as a student. This class also taught me about myself, my strengths and weaknesses, and how to use them to my advantage.
The instructor Jacob Elster, also challenged students and pushed them to want to do their best. He is also admirable and an example of what a true entrepreneur is through all his accomplishments. He provides an example of what one can accomplish if you, you use your potential and pursue your ambitions.
What I learned from this class, is that if I have a passion for something, then I need to fight for it to come to fruition and try not to get discouraged by the adversity that presents itself.
I think this is a good class and I recommend it to other students who want to explore entrepreneurship and yourself.
On a less reflective note:
On Saturday, September 17, 2011, I attended the Chicago Blackhawks Training Camp at the United Center. It was a sold out event with thousands of other excited fans about this upcoming season. The Blackhawks acquired a few enforcers which the team lacked last year. Lot of analyst predicts that the Blackhawks look like Stanley Cup contenders this year. They looked good from their scrimmages on Saturday and I’m looking forward to the start of the season. Pre-season games start September 20, 2011.

So it’s week four of the fall quarter and time is flying. I have two classes this quarter; Accounting 510 (more math) and MGT 598 which is Consumer Marketing. There is a lot of work for both classes but I am finding each class interesting.
This week is also registration for next quarter classes. I found out that my expected graduation date is July 2012, which seems a long way off but actually isn’t. So the list of classes I need to take is narrowing down. I saved all the hard classes for the last part of my program.
I also have to start looking at the future fast and figure out what is my next game plan. Should I pursue another master’s degree or pursue a PHD? I enjoy school but I’m not sure if I can afford to spend more time and money on more degrees. The current economy also doesn’t help with trying to plan with the future.
Other than that, I am looking forward to the International Film Festival and Halloween in the next coming weeks.

On Saturday, October 1, 2011, I rode the Orange Line into the City to participate in the first annual “Open Streets” hosted by the Chicago Loop Alliance. The idea behind “Open Streets” is for the community to gather in an open and safe area and participate in outdoor activities. Such activities included, skate boarding and roller derby demonstrations, break dancing lessons, relay races, and yoga sessions. State Street was closed from Van Buren to Lake so that bike riders, skate boarders, and roller skaters could have free reign of the street.
