Yo yo yo yo! Im supertired! Life in Davis is really so intense! Been going out, doing sports and homework constantly the last week! It sounds like im complaining, but im not! I LOVE being here! It is such a great atmosphere, everyday when i bike to school there are thousands of happy bikers all over the campus! The people at my school are all super awesome! Yesterday I was at a birthday party and now I just came home from another birthday party! It is great to see 30people showing up to celebrate! I hope i will be able to host a Swedish birthday party in about 3 weeks :) IKEA is only a 30min drive away so i hope i can get some meatballs and swedish candy!
Last week i won a beerpong tournament together with Brandon(classmate)! It was pretty cool! It was between 40 and 50 teams in the tournament and before the tournament i never won a single game before so it was very exciting to play :P
The classes im taking are
* Marketing Strategies
* Customer Relationship Manager
* Business, Government and the International Economy
In this post i will shortly describe my Leadership course. Our professor name is Robert Lorber, author of at least 3 books that we will read this quarter! Then we will have 5 guestspeakers from sucessful leaders! Here is the list:
Dale Carlsen, CEO of The Sleep Train
Bob Eckert, Chairman and CEO of Mattel
Rosa Zeegers Senior Vice President Marketing and Licensing, Mattel
Steve Buster, CEO of Mechanics Bank
Joan Miszak, Senior Vice President, Organizational Effectiveness of Raley
We will write three individual papers on our professors books and then we also do one groupwork. I really like the professor and the class even though it is about soft skills. I like the professors life philosophy of always being honest to other and yourself and his strong focus to find everyones passion. On monday we will have our first guestspeaker and im really looking forward to hear for that.
Oohh, and people already started to decorate their houses for Halloween and they ask me what I will be, VIKING?! Hmm, actually I have no idea of what to be, but it feels like Halloween is a pretty big deal here :)
On Friday we will go to something called Corn Maze, it is supposed to be the biggest corn field in US? where they cut the field in a special way to make a huuuge labyrinth. We will go their when it is dark, get a map of the field/labyrinth and then we all try to get through. They say it take about one and a half hour, i better bring some food :)
Finally, I would like to give two recommendations
1. TV-show “Eastbound and down” – Not for sensitive ears.
2. Book “The Developing World” – by Fredrik Hären.
Ok, time to say hello to the pillow, class tomorrow! Adios amigos!
