Seattle, Banking, and a whole life still left to go...

The return to the bay after a week in Seattle has been relaxing, but it's excrutitating to be away from my almost hubby. I think I've gotten so used to being around him, and even though being in the bay used to make me so excited because it meant going out, going out, and more going out, my "going out" itch has waned significantly. I think I have quite a bit of a nesting itch.

So I was reading this article yesterday about MBA spending... and it really scared me. During recruiting season, I really felt that particular recruiters put undue financial expectations on full time MBA students. My parents didn't understand why I had to have such good suits (because I'd look awful standing next to someone who was dressed more impeccably than me), why I had to fly to New York when no one had offered me a job (informationals), and why having a drink on Thursday and Friday evenings was so important (how else do you network and socialize!). It is hard to adjust the other way once you have worked and had a good income, but the loan does frighten me. A lot, actually. Whatever happened to being a student? Sure, I want a job, but I don't want to break the bank in the process of trying to get one! Especially when there are no guarantees in life.
