So, are you ready for a recap of the great moments of October - December 2011? Here we go!
An exciting week of October was when I was thrown into the Scottish country side for a three day, team building, mentally challenging experience. Now, I have been to such events before but those events were usually in the heat of a Texas summer. I thought I was prepared for team building and challenging activities. Well, when you take postgraduate, international marketing students and throw in some Scottish rain and cold, things get ugly. Luckily we made it through a day of ropes courses, holding on to each others' lifelines, as teammates climbed ladders, scaled trees, and trusted each other with our lives. We even went through a day of puzzles and activities which further tested our ability to work as a team. It ended up being a great way to start thinking about future challenges of working as groups for class activities and assignments.

After the week of outdoor activities, we had an excuse to celebrate with two birthdays. Johana has become a great friend to me through this year and I'm so glad our birthdays fall just a day apart. After being at BlueSky, we had a class birthday party! It was a great evening and a wonderful birthday. A group of international students sure know how to make a birthday, even away from home, a memorable one.
