I still do some admin work for the University in one of the research departments (soft eng - totally unrelated to what I do academically). They are really cool to work for, but I'm relieved to finally have enough time to work on my thesis properly.
Ooh... nice thesis! It would be interesting to read.
I have a bachelor's in comparitive religious studies and philosophy, and I am in my fifth (of six years) of pharmacy school.
Hubby is wonderful, and he works 1.5 jobs so I can focus on school. He got a bachelor's in journalism and another one in biology, he's a science writer and he helps puts the local newspaper online, but he's about to lose that job (an internship he's kept for six years!) and go work at Kinkos.
I am thinking about ditching pharmacy and going into an accelerated nursing program near me because I think I'd be a lot happier and fulfilled in the long run. If I did that, I would want to find a way to be a veterinary nurse (not just a technician, some of the big vets around here employ BSNs too). The only problem is that they don't like it when your transfer credits and undergrad degree are from another university, so my GPA will have to be really high to get in... I am taking a summer class and talking to some of the faculty and admissions counselors to see if I should stay with it or go ahead and finish pharmacy school... decisions, decisions.
I have pharmacy technician skills, both retail, hospital, and long term care thanks to some student jobs I had in the past. I worked in a cafeteria in high school, and at a coffee cart my first year of college.
