..is not to take a risk at all.

This is one of my favorite quotes. It makes you trust, hope on something and go for it despite the uncertain outcome. The subject line perhaps describes my state right now. I was at one of the major crossroads of life, wondering what path to take. The decision was perhaps the hardest I had to make. It was a HUGE change for me and everyone that knew me for a quarter century. It was a decision that was parting me and my loved ones – my city, family, people i knew, my hobbies and many more. It was a decision that moved me out of the most comfortable possible comfort zone. The decision that would put me in enormous pressure in many ways – mentally, emotionally, and financially.

The decision was to pursue MBA in the US. Here I am blogging from Los Angeles, California. The orientation program starts tomorrow and I’ll be studying at the Marshall School of Business at the University of Southern California.

There sure would be some new experiences this decision would bring about. There are many firsts. I know I’d be crippled in many ways – living without a car (especially in a country such as this), living with a thought of budget in mind, renting a house to live and cooking myself. It’s a different experience. Have to wait and watch where this takes me.

I’d continue writing on this blog as this has already gone through some drastic changes from its inception. Started as a pad for scribbling random thoughts, transformed to a travel and wildlife blog, and now that of an MBA student. It’s disappointing that I might not be able post about my wildlife escapades much now on, but I have a stockpile pending that I’d post whenever I find time. But It won’t be much. For those that want to unsubscribe, hope to connect in future. For the rest, stop wondering what a sellout and wish me luck.

Fight on!
