I am in the HEAT of MBA applications…
It has been a very big undertaking and I know that if I get into the university of my choice, my future will take on a whole new shape.
However — Round 2 application deadlines are also in the heat of family time, and I am a huge family guy, but that is a post for another day. There is my father’s birthday, Thanksgiving, Noche Buena (the night before Christmas), Christmas, New Years, and last but definitely not least my girlfriend Gesy’s birthday. Of all ages to be turning… she was about to hit the big 3-0.
I didn’t have much time to spare as I had been focusing on everything else in life, but I knew I had to make something special for her as she has done SO much for me through the years.
This is where the fun begins… I played the card of being fully committed to my work, and I told her that I wouldn’t be able to do much more than a dinner. Believe it or not, she was in complete agreement, and she let me tend to my work because she knew the gravity of the situation. Little did she know… I had a few tricks up my sleeve.
I planned a surprise dinner party for her, brought her into a restaurant full of people while blindfolded, and sat her down at a table of 17 of her friends. She was completely shocked and we had a very memorable dinner — not to mention the surprise video I also made for her!
Disclaimer: It is a pretty long video, but don’t be deterred from the boring intro — make it to at least minute 3 🙂
