How is everyone enjoying spring? Apart from the rain yesterday, it’s been very nice out in Ottawa lately. I could do with some snow though…
I’m done my second year of university now, just 2.5 years more to go. 2/4.5 = 4/9, right? It depends on how you look at it really. Counting in academic years consisting of two semesters, yes I’m 4/9 or 44% done. Counting only study semesters, I’m 4/8 or 50% done. Counting both study semesters and CO-OP work terms, I’m only 4/12 or 33% done.
This summer I’ll be doing my first CO-OP work term at Statistics Canada working as a Systems Tester. Boring? Maybe, but it’ll be something new to me anyways. I’ll be starting in two weeks and I’m looking forward to it. One of my coworkers from this semester also worked at StatCan for his first co-op work term as well and he said that it was a good place to work.
Since I’ve never been in Ottawa during the summer (apart from my first time here on a tour guide back in grade 6 I believe), there will probably be exciting events to see around the city too. I mean, in the winter there was Winterlude. The club scene will always be there in the ByWard Market, but I’m sure there will be other things to explore. Then again, what’s more exciting than riding down the Transitway on the 95?
It will be a busy summer for sure, albeit one that I’m looking forward to! (What I’m not looking forward to: the heat)
