Well itīs been... a little while

Hi all !!!!

Although I am seeing a few newbies around here, I am sure that some of you will remember who I am.

I know that quite some time has gone by since my last post (um, like 5 months?) but I just wanted to post again to let you know everything was fine from this side.

Let me give you a quick update of my life. All of a sudden, I decided to quit my job at Wall Street last December. I was tired, disappointed and, after September 11, also felt I wanted to change cities. I had also applied to a few business schools and was waiting on a few results, so I decided to take my chances and leave.

After a few rejections, I was finally accepted by the Wharton School in Philadelphia. I was also accepted by the Lauder Institute there to pursue a dual Masters: the MBA from Wharton and an MA in International Studies with a focus on Latin America (as most of you know, I am from Argentina). As part of this second program, I am currently in Sao Paulo, Brazil, pursuing some studies in Brazilian history, culture, music, etc. and working on my Portuguese. I am staying here until July 25th, then going back to Buenos Aires for a few days and then coming back to Philly to continue my studies.

And I also saved the best for last. I wanted to share with you all that I am getting married next year. I am really happy about that as well. Wedding will take place next May in Buenos Aires and we are already working on the arrangements. I will try to get a pic of Valeria, my fiancee, to post it in NicaMomīs website (assuming she is still around?).

Of course, I am more of a U2 fan than ever and I am anxiously waiting the release of the new Best of...

Again, I apologize for disappearing all of a sudden. I hope that you can all understand that this has been a time of many changes for me... hopefully all for good.

I look forward to hearing from you all soon.

All the best,

Pablo

Your studies sound fascinating. Good luck with that.

PS: I'm still hopeless at posting and typing. had to come back and edit that, the arrow <----------- was pointing at Australia and Ronaldo. Hope I got it right this time.

This is so strange!! Last night before I fall asleep I was thinking about all the interferencers who dissappeared suddenly... Pablo, NicaMom, bonovista... and today when I switched on the computer I saw this thread!! Nice to have you back Pablo!!

Yes cass, I bet brazil would be an extremely excited (and exciting too!) part in the world today! Wish I was there and feel the excitement.

You bet ...Definitely

You know christiana, Pablo and I used to have some nice chats thru AIM some time ago (and I hope we can have it again, maybe) but we never, ever agreed in one single thing...and that is on football (or soccer...), LOL, of course due to the old rivalry between Argentina and Brasil on the football pitch Even so, I hope he can celebrate with us today...would you Pablo?

Thank you dear Mariana. This has been a great day for us Brazilians. Our Seleįão deserved the victory. Lots of hapiness in the air, you know...and some samba, of course

Youīve been missed here girl! Please, donīt let us without hearing from you for so long!

Thanks to all for all your beautiful messages....
I will definetly post more updates on the wedding and give further details on my student life.
Right now, I am in a cybercafe in beautiful Paraty Island, 4 hours away from Sao Paulo. I have to say I am having a great time, both due to the beach and the festivities related to Brazilīs 5th World Cup. And follower, despite any historical rivalries, let me be the first to congratulate you and the Brazilian team on such an amazing achievement.
I will post more as soon as I get to a more decent connection (probably tomorrow, when I will be back in Sao Paulo). But I just wanted to say thanks to you all...
P.
