Had my very last exam today, it was piss easy. I know have 2 and a half weeks holiday, going down the Gold Coast on monday for 4 days, doing a bit of work on the car and attending a few Fordforum cruises.
I start full time work on 24th November with a firm I did my work experience with. I had been working at Bunnings casually for 6 years since grade 10 and had my last day there last sunday!
I am know a free man with a career path!!
Just wanted to share my enthusiasm with you all. Look forward to going on some cruises.
Don't pay attention to Night_Lurker, work may be hard, but at least it's only 9-5. It doesn't stay with u, and F#&K with ur mind, take up every waking moment and confuse u, with the never ending lectures, assignments, labs, exams and....... Sorry, I've just ended a sleep deprived week, and started an exam cramming week.
Enjoy the freedom, u lucky bastard! You've earned it. And best of all, this is when it all pays off $$$$$$
CONGRATS and see you on that fordforums cruise.*winks*.
cars are a lethal weapon,your not invinsible when you get into one,and no matter how much skill you think you have,you are never in control you are always on the edge of death it may not happen today but if you keep driving like you do,you too will end up dead!
Fordy: I studied a Bachelor of Surveying, I have 2 years experience as a chainman and some party leading, I will be spending 3 months being brought up to speed at my new job and then i get a company car and more responsibility.
I'll be doing mostly cadastral surveying, idents, setouts, DTMs, Building Format Plans etc and some engineering surveying later on. My boss is a real champ and has expressed interest in paying for me to get Licensed like he is so I can consult and earn more money. But that is 5 years away, but nice to know I have the opertunity.
Night_Lurker: Its funny you mention that, I am thinking of doing a planning degree to go with the surveying one, makes for a killer combo with development.
EFJase: Yeah mate, I will miss the pub, our social club won the VB beer drinking competition, and we had $500 left on a $1500 bar tab prize at the pub to finish last night. I'll miss $3 jugs of Stella thats for sure!!
Don't worry about 4 years man, time flies, expecially when you start working in the field you study.
Cancerman: I know how you feel, but at the same time I'll miss it. In the same strange way I missed grade 12....
