Back to the (blog)board!

I love to write.  I've always loved to write.  I've loved writing even before I knew what letters and words meant; ask my Mom, and she'll hold up my scribbles in her notebooks as proof!  I've loved writing when I would read works of literary genius, and dreamt of one day holding my own published work in my hands.  I've loved writing even more after I discovered a passion for poetry at age 8, and fell in love with the art of creative, poetic expression.

The only times I didn't like writing was for tests & examinations.  Why waste the beautiful act of putting pen to paper on proving that you memorized a textbook?!  Perhaps that's why I loved writing this blog during my time at Rotman...  It provided a welcome release from the exhausting intensity of business school, and allowed me to reflect on how I felt.  I viewed Rotman as an adventure even before it started (hence the title of this blog - MBA: Must Bring Adventure!), and what an exhilarating adventure it was!  I got to go to Canada's top business school, learn from some of the finest professors, associate with a fantastic group of peers, and meet some of the most amazing people that I am now blessed to call my friends. :)

Writing became an intrinsic part of my being, and I naturally assumed it would continue even after Rotman... After all, isn't life the biggest adventure of them all? ;)  However, transitioning from business school to business world made me realize that continuing my writing might be tricky with all the confidentiality clauses and non-disclosure agreements.  Whether for an organization or a client, more often than not, you are working on sensitive information, and you owe it to them to protect the privacy of their intellectual property (look at all that alliteration - I must have really missed writing!).  Hence, this blog's been quiet for a little while.  

However, my friends & readers have been encouraging me to get back to writing, and I have been itching to get typing my thoughts!  So, as long as I steer clear of work specifics, I think I'm okay to write about lessons learnt, tidbits discovered, and reflections on really cool stuff (or maybe just stuff I find cool!).  Caveat: just like a car takes a little while to warm up after being out in the cold, my writing may take a little time to stop sputtering and begin purring, but I'm an eager beaver!  So, I endeavor to write about all the awesomeness I come across along this continuing adventure, and I hope you'll join me for the ride! :)

P.S.  Yes, I realize that the title is extremely cheesy, so if you've got any good ideas, comment, email or tweet them across, and I'll credit a title change to you!
