de capa caida

When you walk through a storm
Hold your head up high
And don't be afraid of the dark
At the end of the storm
Is a golden sky
And the sweet silver song of a lark

Walk on through the wind
Walk on through the rain
Tho' your dreams be tossed and blown
Walk on, walk on
With hope in your heart
And you'll never walk alone
You'll never walk alone

Al menos murieron con las botas puestas

ENTJ or a random week between Feb and March

This week, among other things, I have been labeled as an ENTJ. This means that according to the work of a psychiatrist called Carl Gustav Jung, I am a "Dominant Extraverted Thinking supported by Introverted iNtuition" kind of person. Cool eh! I will use this as an introductory sentence to certain people from now on during a certain period of time and will publish the results of my introductory sentence in the blog. Eg: So tell me a bit about yourself...what do you do? Oh, I am a dominant extraverted thinking person that supports himself by introverted intuition, but only sometimes. Clear eh!
Apparently, Jung didn't like too much our inclination towards science and logic, and he wanted to increase our attention towards spirituality and the unconscious realm. He investigated the world of dream, myth, and soul. By the way, if someone can explain briefly to me how can you investigate the soul, please, feel free to post a comment. About the unconscious part, it sounds a bit like X-men vocabulary, but I have to admitt that the personalities described in that test match quite a lot with how one thinks about himself, and it is quite useful for.....Job interviews.
Yes, interviews are still "in process", of course. I am becoming an expert. Lamberto gave me the idea of beating the number of interviews an IESE MBA has done in one term. That would be a way to be remembered at school, although the idea is not very appealing to me for the moment. (Of course, I am exaggerating a bit and there is people who has done a lot more interviews. Still, if one week I don't have an interview now, I feel empty :-). The best thing of doing this interview processes is that it gives you the opportunity of knowing more people and also thinking about yourself quite a lot. Lately, my interest has shifted towards the very interesting and always entertaining world of "assessment centers and group dynamics". Real fun.
Anyway, once the idea of applying the concept of the movie "Wedding crashers" into "Assessment center crashers" (just to have something tangible once you finish) was discarded for its stupidity and its implication of attending to even more assessment centers, the main objective is still finding a job soon.

Week activities:
Freddy's surprise party at Iñigo's place. It was a second multicultural dinner (see prev post), not so for the amount of booze (although the Germans pushed in that direction), but for the variety of food from every country present in the diner. Below, the preparation of festivities.
Left table was mainly occupied with Spanish food in the beggining. Lena and Till.
I hypnotized Chris with my camera flash.

Iñigo, the host. This is the MBA 2007 class president, and believe me, a future famous teacher at the school. The other is me.

Thursday: Random dinner. Mexican food in Tammy Maloney's place cooked by Goomer. The company and the food were delicious, just as the old tequila we enjoyed at the end. Unfortunately, I had to leave soon due to.....a friday and saturday interviews. Oh yeah!!
Here the random dinner crowd with Yevgeny, an infiltrated Russian who was wearing a Mexican hat for migits.
