Staying the course

After the MBA, you start to get back into the "real" world. What does that really mean? It really means that our convictions will constantly be tested and we will face the temptation to go back to our old self before the IMD experience. But hopefully with the training of being more self aware, we can deflect un-inspiring encounters and detect our natural inclination to avoid discomfort.

Stay the course, fellow MBAs and know that we must change the world, inspire the people we come in contact with and have as much fun as we can.

I have been working for Philips in the Netherlands for 3 weeks.
We live on the 3rd floor in an apartment in the center of Eindhoven.
In 3 days, we finally get our brand new bicycles!
It is probably going to take 3 weeks for us to receive our things that are still waiting for our city registration.
3 days ago, we were at the Eindhoven city hall registering as a resident.

We are still in a state of transition, although things are getting better by the day. Hopefully this week will be a productive one in terms of getting settled, but it will still take a few before we finally get our things and have simple pleasures such as a couch! I am actually really looking forward to getting our kitchen ware and cooking again. It has been tough eating out and cooking with our one pan and one pot. I promise I will update with pictures and videos soon!

In the mean time, check out 3 silly tilt shift pictures of our past adventures.
