On the left a pic of the view from our living room, which I took today. My housemates and I are lucky enough to live on the 9th floor of a building, facing west, south and east, and we can see all of London, all the way up to Canary Wharf (although that doesn’t show from this pic)(but if you look closely, you can see some of the skyscrapers in the City). That must be the best thing of this place: the view. Although I must admit, the kitchen, living room, my bed and my housemates ain’t bad either
One of the things I love about being a graduate student is that it’s so much easier to do things during the day, instead of being bound to the evenings as I was before (and then I was mostly too tired to really do anything). I’ve decided to start volunteering this year, and Young Enterprise came on my path. They run a Company Programme at a secondary school close by, in which secondary school students set up and run their own business for one academic year. I function as an advisor and mentor, and I *love* doing it. ‘My’ kids are great, they’re enthusiastic, feisty and spunky and run their own events-organising business, and pretty succesful too.
Another London Business School 2008 blogger has reported for duty: welcome Patxi! It’s getting busy on the blogger-block, the more the merrier
