My friends, the MBA is over. The summer ball on Saturday was the final party at London Business School that I will attend in a long time. Of course, I may come back to Tattoo or Diwali next year, but it will not be the same anymore. I will miss those friends of mine who have left London for the Philippines, Italy, Russia, India and other places. Luckily, most of my friends remain in London, but we will hang out less than before.
This is not only the end of my MBA, but also the end of this blog. I want to keep writing, but since I now start my job I will want to have an anonymous blog so I can express my ideas freely without being associated with a specific bank - I would not be able to write what I really think. For the same reason, I have always maintained this blog rather than blogging on the official London business school blog - simply to write whatever I felt without feeling I need to censor my thoughts. I am starting my new job on Wednesday, starting with a training in New York, and then joining the trading floor in London in October, and therefore this is my last post.
Thank you all to those who have followed this blog and sent messages of support over the years. I wish you all the best in achieving your dreams. I close with my favourite quote by the Nigerian writer Ben Okri:
OUR FUTURE IS GREATER THAN OUR PAST
- Ben Okri -
All the best,

Can you believe it? Angel Angie, who two years ago was blogging about her miseries in the consulting world, then came to London Business School to move to London and find a new career has graduated today! I had a beautiful day celebrating with my friends! You can see all you need to see from these pictures.
