Did I learn Anything in this Class?

From my first blog post, I could tell that I was absolutely shocked by the fact that I was potentially going to learn something in this class (probably should not have been as shocking obviously). Instead of having to memorize scenes on vases and finance equations for an exam, we were going to actually discuss […]

A Continuation of Goldman Sachs and It’s Fintech Platforms

After my presentation last week, I thought it would be a good idea to expand a bit on the other fintech platforms that Goldman Sachs’ is implementing, which I did not get to in my presentation. As I said in my presentation, GS is at the forefront of innovation in this area and are really […]

This is the End: my phone broke

My Wednesday started off relatively normal. I woke up at 7AM to get ready for work. I got on the T to go to Newbury St. Got in to work at about 9AM. All was well.

It was stressful and took about 6 months to write and I’d essentially blacked it out of my memory until about 2 weeks ago. Roark retweeted […]

Initial Thoughts: Am I a Social Media Genius?

Social Media is a weird thing. It allows people to discuss, argue, ramble about EVERYTHING. Their job, their school, their sports teams, Hailee Steinfeld’s outfit at the Grammys (those purple boots?
