Week 55 - Day 4

Just one more week of ACCESS to go, and then I am done for good.

I have been looking for jobs over the last 2 months (June and July) and had absolutely NO bites, NOT one bite, until today.

I have a job interview in 12 days time. My last day of school is in 8 days time.

I am not going to jinx myself by writing any more about it. The details can wait until after the interview.

Week 54 - Day 4

My final grade for Advanced Power Point was 88%.

I have just over 2 weeks to go until I am finished. Right now we are doing ACCESS. I also have an ACCESS project that must be done as well. I cannot believe how fast this year has gone.

Right now I am busy applying for jobs. In this recession that Canada is experiencing (just like everywhere else) I hope I can find a good job.

Week 53 - Day 1

My final grade for MS Outlook was 95%.

So to recap, my final grades for MS Advanced Applications, so far, have been all in the 90s. This is good. It will help my average. If my overall average is on the 80s. I will graduate with Distinction. Nothing wrong with that at all.

The 69 I got for advanced accounting, probably pulled my average down too far to get an overall average in the 90s.

This week we are doing Advanced Powerpoint, and next week we start 3 weeks of Access Database. We are not doing presentations for Powerpoint, thank goodness.

Week 52 - Day 5

I got 90% on the final exam for Outlook today, but that will not be my final grade.

More final grades finally showed up. For Excel my final grade was 94% and for ACCPAC I got 88%. I am very pleased with those grades.

It was S's last day today. One of my classmates took a few pics of various students and me with S. I will put them up, eventually when I get them.

I now have exactly 4 weeks to go.

Week 52 - Day 3

This week the class has been doing Advanced Outlook - things like meetings, appointments, sharing calendars etc etc. Next week is Power Point and then 3 weeks of Access. I am so close to finishing, I can smell it. Literally.

The school puts on a graduation lunch every month for those students graduating or starting an internship that month. Its usually pizza, pop and cake. Well I was invited to the graduation lunch today - because I finish early next month and the next lunch won't happen until after I leave. And I had pizza and some pop. No cake because someone forgot to order it.

I found out that my favourite teacher - whom I have called S in this blog - is leaving the Toronto Campus and moving out to the brand new Brampton campus that opens next week. She lives in Mississauga, and getting to Brampton is a lot easier for her than having to drive all the way into Toronto (a 90 minute trip most mornings) which she has done for the last 7 years. In fact she said that her classes start next Monday. I am so going to miss her. She is a great teacher and she will be missed.

The next graduation ceremony will be on November 26th this year.

Week 51 - Day 5

The class did Advanced Excel this week and we had the final exam today. I got 90% on the exam, and 100% on the assignments. The final grade will have to wait until next week.
