Background Information About Me

Hello, I am Lanny Berlingieri and have been born and raised in Northeast Ohio in the Akron area. I attended The University of Akron for undergrad, earning my Bachelor's of Science in Accounting (Fall 2006-Fall 2009). 2010 was then approaching quickly and I had to decide on what I was planning to do in the middle of my last semester. I have a full-time offer with Crowe Horwath starting September 2011, which gave me around 21 months in b/w graduating and starting. I therefore took the GMAT and began taking graduate courses this semester (January 2010) towards an MBA in Finance.

Finding the Motivation

Finding the Motivation - Very difficult to do the past couple of days.  My situation - work very few hours where I am employed, only Night classes 2 days a week (starting 2/22 it will be 3 nights a week) and distractions are endless.

It is difficult when you are not in a setting that is suitable for learning.  I am in my dining room currently, I have 3 text books, one casual book and of course, my laptop.  The laptop is needed though so I can take notes, e-mail other students and professors and reach documents that I need online.  BUT the internet is on here.  I am blogging now to maybe let some of my thoughts out so I can go back to studying.  I will try to set a good 60 minutes straight after I finish publishing this, so I am using this blog as my motivation and discipline.

I am only taking 10 credit hours, so it feels like I am not doing so much, you know?  I am used to 18 or so credit hours (6 classes) when compared to 3-4 classes now, it just feels like there is so much missing. 

I will be studying for my exam on Wednesday night and work on my assignment due in the class after.  I don't have class this Tuesday because of President's Day (we take Tues off not Monday), making it 2 weeks in a row of not having my Tuesday class (Snow Day last week).  Thanks for reading, and it is back to hitting the books!
