Loving the sun!

Filed under: fun in the sun — by Jamswife @ 7:51 pm

Ohhh what a great day to be home… the sun is shining, a warm breeze is blowing.  A perfect day for doing laundry and hanging it outside to dry, which is exactly what I did.  My husband has an aversion to fabric softeners so I throw in 1/4 cup of white vinegar in the softener dispenser instead, and have wonderfully fresh and clean laundry.

This is the type of day where it is VERY hard to study and stay focused, because there are so many things that I would rather be doing outside (I think I can actually hear my neglected garden calling to me!).  I just need to get through these next three days (and three exams), and then I can get back to the things that I love doing.

The Beginning of the End

Filed under: School — by Jamswife @ 1:26 am

So I had my first exam today for my last exam period ever….  I have three more exams next week, but today marks the beginning of the end of my long schooling career.  It is bit weird to think I won’t have to study any more, prepare for tests or write paper, actually it is down right scary.  I have always enjoyed learning, and was very good at it too (one reason why I stayed in school for so long!).  But I do realize it is time to move on to bigger and better things.  I HATE HATE HATE the term professional student, and although I have been in school for a number of years (8+!) it has alway been towards a specific goal and no time was wasted taking “easy” courses

I am always up for a challenge, and am looking forward to really starting my career in Clinical Research.  I am going to be working at a large hospital help run clinical trials in oncology, and am very excited to start in May.  However I am a little sad that I will be leaving this part of my life behind as it offered many unique experiences (if you have the chance to do co-op do it!).  I am sure starting this new chapter will offer many new and different learning opprotunities, and hopefully more $$$!

An introduction of sorts

Filed under: Uncategorized — by Jamswife @ 1:21 am

So I am nearing the end of my schooling odyssey.  Don’t get me wrong I have loved every minute of it, but an additional 8 years on top of high school is a lot of school…

It all started waaaay back in 2001 when I first started at the University of Guelph, I completed my undergraduate degree and then went on to gradate school at the University of Toronto.  I completed my Masters in 2.5 years, but still had not had enough school, so I decided to take a 1 year post graduate program in Clinical Research at Humber College starting in 2008.  School is finally coming to an end, with my 3 month internship (which will *hopefully* lead to a permanent job starting in May 2009.  There are many adventures to come to prepare for life in the “real world” including saving for retirment (yes I am planning it already), starting to think about starting a family in the next couple of years, and getting into shape.  Enjoy the ride…
