Hasta La Bye Bye, Windy City

In the past couple of days, as a take-my-mind-off-packing-er, I've been reading Dan Brown. So, I guess that's why I'm looking for signs and their meanings. Last night, it rained. Pretty heavily. And, I was thinking back to last year, a taxi ride to Ezeiza airport in BsAs. As my friend and I left our hostel, what seemed like a clear-ish sky darkened, and then opened up. I was told then that it was a very good thing - it means that the heavens are sad to see you go and these are their tears. I'd like to think they were crying for me pretty hard last night. In any case, they did manage to postpone my cleaning up, whereupon I find myself today still here, having lunch at my favorite coffee shop, a few minutes away from leaving this fantastic city. I'm all packed and house keys have been handed over.

Officially, Homeless.

I'm not one for long goodbyes, but while Chicago will always be here, it won't ever be the same city for me when I return. My time in Chicago has been so intricately associated with my GSB experience. I will miss Chicago - it is a truly magnificent city - but I will miss so much more the people I got to get to know this city with.

OK, shut up and drive time. Next stop: Boston. 1000 miles.

Look forward to seeing you when you visit CA in a few months.

I feel that way everytime I drive out of Chicago. It took Sinatra two attempts to do justice to the name of the city..go figure!!!
Boston ain't that bad either

Over time I developed a theory: do something for two years, then move on and do something else.

I use this theory to describe how college and high school became a drag, and how GSB MBA was well timed.

Here's to changes :-).

Hey Poweryogi,

Would like to get in touch with you. I was the person who won the 3rd prize at the NVC in 06. Just recently came across that posting on your blog and since then have been meaning to know who you are.

Perhaps if you could send me an email at with your full name, I can look you up on the alumni directory.
