The screening of study prospects has commenced
Two hundred fellow students and ten introduction days to sort them through in order to find a few, select potential study buddies. That became apparent to be the mission, as I chose to accept it, turning up for the first day of the first semester at the Copenhagen Business School this morning. A tough job for sure.
In a perfect world you would get to learn all the intricate details about all of them. In the real world I get ten days, before two hundred becomes fourty (as we're seperated in to study teams), to evaluate who I want to spend my time and energy on getting to know better.
This has already cast me into a rigorous screening process with little patience for the nonentities. Why so harsh? I value my time, and I honestly can't be bothered with wasting on it on people I don't find interesting. I think I have something to offer, so I expect a lot in return as well.
That attitude probably already dramaticly cut down on the number of people who're even interested in sharing a learning experience with me - and that's OK. It'll only make my task easier.
Roll on day two!
