Start of my day; I overslept a little.
Sun is out in Greenlake where I live. That will change!
I never leave home without this.
Parking at school is expensive if you don’t carpool. King County Metro is my limo.
First class of the day is Marketing. Very “interesting” topics we covered today.
In-between classes, took a quick look for a table to hang out at and it looks like they are already all taken.
Found a chair and a table to do some reading. Weather has turned a bit.
15 minutes later.
Reading spot got a little loud so I hit the Business Library. I find I move spots a lot during the day.
One of the group meeting rooms in Paccar Hall. I was the first of my group to get there.
The results of our brainstorm session for a Marketing deliverable.
Quick break so I grabbed a chair to get some more reading in.
Despite the days getting shorter, I managed to leave campus with a little daylight left.
Working into the late night on a Finance case. These are challenging but fun.
