|9 hours 29 min ago||I just started working here||
I just started working here and I have to say... I'm passionate about what i'm doing... there are people in my division that are passionate about what they're doing. That said we aren't on the consumer side... but i am in a really cool new area of the business that's very promising. I think MSFT faces a big perception problem... especially on the consumer side.
I think people do leave early but that varies by group. Think about it though, if you're working in Office vs. bing vs xbox etc. your mentality coming to work is very different.
I haven't been here outside of summer, but folks that i know that leave early still log on later in the evening, they just need to enjoy the precious few weeks of summer.

My buddy who went to Miami is pumped about this Adidas deal and likes the jerseys...
I told him to just wait.

Actually I think Uber would prefer to get rid of drivers. Wouldn't you? I believe they're already investing time into driverless tech , if I recall correctly. Didnt they jack scientists from Carnegie melons self driving research lab?

Jim Harbaugh took the value with him when he left the niners.

Kinda funny but also an example of why so many schools side with Michigan in this rivalry.

I converted just so I could be offended.

And who is their Notre Dame? Haha
|3 weeks 3 days ago||Don't remind me about the||
Don't remind me about the weather. I've yet to endure the rainy season. I've only spent last summer and have moved here now.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||I just moved to Seattle and||
I just moved to Seattle and the descriptions above are pretty accurate so far. I've also been hearing that Washington fans have a sick Sail-gating scene... I'm definitely planning to scope that out this fall.

|5 weeks 4 days ago||Well, didnt the OP just say||
Well, didnt the OP just say this was in response to a tweet from Brian? Who by the way, posted it at 12:09AM:
"Hoke era basically "army of PCP-crazed dingoes trying to fuck a space wallaby" y/n
Which, I have no idea what any of that means but it sounds provocative to me. I guess he's taking a re-take on his DB Obit.. but if you're going to judge this guy for his tweet, at least paint the full picture. Twitter is hard enough to follow (when there's back and forth convo).
Don't just give half the information.
|5 weeks 4 days ago||I'm sorry if this is||
I'm sorry if this is unpopular but...what's the big deal with his tweet? I mean I guess he didn't need to make it personal at the end, but he stated an opinion... in the country I live in, I'd like to think that's okay. Brian is a big boy, I think he can handle it...no?

so did you see Urbz there?
|7 weeks 6 days ago||I couldn't have said it||
I couldn't have said it better myself. My sentiments exactly.

Kind of bullshit if you ask me. It was aborderline strike... i don't really get it.
|8 weeks 1 day ago||Congrats! I just graduated||
Congrats! I just graduated from Columbia Business School this year- it will be an amazing two years! Have fun

Except Alabama... that's 'ridiculous'.

I wonderful if Kansas fans would put this up there:

Ha, i have to say you're spot on. I never ran so much in my life.

No, but i am heading to the Duke MBA Rugby tournament and look forward to our inevitable match against Wharton.
|18 weeks 2 days ago||Just amazing... back in NYC||
Just amazing... back in NYC in my day, drinking in public underage would get you a summons in court, and a $15 fine... no record. Not that this happened to me or anything.
|20 weeks 6 days ago||I mean, with new coaches (a||
I mean, with new coaches (a few of whom are NFL caliber), if I were Gardner, in prep for any future workouts, i'd be working with them to enhance my craft (as a WR.)
A few coaches put in some good words, and if not drafted, then at least he'd get a serious look and opportunity.
I'd also be curious to learn as much as possible from harbaugh and staff... who knows what connections they have (in football and in life.)
|23 weeks 3 days ago||Amen, spread the word. I did||
Amen, spread the word. I did my best to spread the word to those applying. Full disclosure i am puerto rican, but you don't have to be a minority! I asked that question specifically to the Consortium folks.
|23 weeks 3 days ago||One guy from my rival IM flag||
One guy from my rival IM flag football team. Totally tackled me BEFORE and intefered with the pass.... NO FLAG!!!1111
|23 weeks 3 days ago||You actually don't have to be||
You actually don't have to be a minority to earn a fellowship via the consortium. You just need to demonstrate commitment to diversity. The race thing is often misunderstood, so I figured i'd correct that. So if you were a TFA teacher or a "big brother" you can make a great case.
Also a note: the disadvantage of applying this way is that you have to reveal a ranking of the consortium schools you're aplying to. I put Ross first over Tuck/Darden which certainly helped with Ross, but didn't help with Tuck/Darden.
|23 weeks 3 days ago||1. What was your||
1. What was your admissions process/experience like at Ross or other MBA programs?
2. What were some other schools you considered, or think I might want to look at?
I applied to 7 schools: Columbia, Kellogg, Tuck, Darden, Cornell, Ross, Emory (Goizueta). Got into all but Kellogg.
You may want to also consider: Texas McCombs, Goizueta (Emory), Notre Dame Mendoza (network is quite strong) and Kelley (Indiana) if you're into B1G schools.
3. What's some advice you have in choosing programs, getting admitted, making the most out of B-school, etc. Take the trips with classmates... the MBA is at least 75% about the network (IMO). Join crazy/unrelated groups... I play rugby (for the first time) with my school- love it!
I'm in class (whoops) so I can elaborate more if you have more Q's.
|24 weeks 1 day ago||Gerald Ford and the GaTech||
Gerald Ford and the GaTech game.
Not that this merits a full 30/30 but a few years ago I watched a YouTube clip of post Ohio state... John Navarre leads us to a rose bowl. he was asked on camera about how sweet it must be to silence the critics. He downplayed it but got pretty emotional. Sobering moment for me as a fan.
Jim Abbott is a perfect call though. Thats #1, bando killed it before the thread got warmed up!
|24 weeks 1 day ago||I think Brian went a little||
I think Brian went a little far... got the joke but it's a bit far (for me.)
That said, this "kid" or "19 year old man" has a really really bad idea... also my opinion.
Honestly, i just wonder what would have happened if he hadn't taken down his own twitter page.
Finally, i just realize i post in note form. I should work on that.
