The end is near, at least for this stage of the journey. Standing between me and the end of my college experience, part deux, are three classes and a semester-long internship. The internship is the most important item on the schedule in that it may point the way to a career and the return of a predictable revenue stream. The classes are intended to take the knowledge acquired over the last three years and turn theory into practical applications of research, analysis, and financial modeling, which will be the engine of a successful career.
Whatever the future holds, this experience has been worth the time, the effort, and the cost. The friendships developed with my fellow students and professors, the discovery of new knowledge, and the realization that perfection, and its sidekick total understanding, are ideals and not reality have all provided me with an understanding of things that is priceless.
Let’s get this last semester going!
