A Poem – “The MBA Emotions roller coaster”

Assignments, workshops, classes, Exams
Powerpoint, Dropbox, Project Plans
This is my life now no time to waste
Reading and writing (a cut and a paste)
A reference is needed for Porters 5 forces,
The Harvard standard shows all of my sources
Still typing my assignment, its quarter to three
This last minute panic that’s stupid of me

Cinema, Television Music or Show
The answer each time is sadly No
Friends declined and on the back burner
Apparently I’m considered the studious learner
1 year passes and  5 subjects down
A smile replaces my permanent frown
The timetable appears to spare us some slack
Is this a chance to have some life back?

Timetables clash, Sleep deprivation
How can I cope, I need a vacation
Late nights and weekends stimulant pumped
The Ideas are flowing a thousand words dumped
Final submission, should I be scared?
Last lessons taken, farewells declared
Six weeks to wait it’s finally over
The MBA emotions roller coaster

And now its done, what do I think?
It’s been a delight I say with a wink.
I once had a chip as big as a boulder,
Sitting upon my right and left shoulder,
I wanted the letters available to me,
It was never about increasing my fee,
I needed to know I was capable you see,
Because the greatest reward is being set free,

So there you go my review of the course. Not traditional but in UEA style  “DO DIFFERRENT”.
