Can you take the classes online? My sister-in-law is working on her Master's degree and so far every class has had an online option. She's able to work full time.

nope. I've been looking for online options elsewhere, but I also feel like this is something that is quite hands on.

edit: I just found one online that is almost $4000 per quarter. It estimates it will take you 12 quarters to finish it. HHHHHHAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHAHAHA. You are hilarious, website.

Another poster maker is born . You could try interning at a studio and learn the ropes .

Don't think I'll be going to work today. For the second Monday in a row, kinda hard to motivate oneself when one doesn't get paid.

How do you get away with not going in? You just started.


Because I'm working for no pay, so... as I'm good at what I do they are just happy when I do turn up. Incidentally I did go in today I was only 10 minutes late and put in a good shift.

My hours have been changed, not a happy camper. I also now have to start clocking in and out, 8 till 5 mon-fri with a 30min lunch break, that's an eight and a half hour day, forty two and a half hour week, by law I am entitled to work no more than a 39hour week, considering this is a government scheme you would think they are the ones to abide by the rules not only that I usually get into work around 7:30. I'm gonna clock all week then on Friday next I'm gonna ask how many hours so far and then take the afternoon off. Don't honestly see this job lasting it's time.

You know you're homesick when you have cravings so strong for the food you have always hated back home that you actually go to the international section of Tesco to buy it.

Ohh, I realised today, after 5 months here that I can watch tv online live for free. I will never do anything useful again.

me and my country say thanks! Despite the fact that I lived there for 4 years, this is the first time I am spending Canada Day in Ottawa. It will be crazy busy, even more so because Kate and William will be there (yawn) but happy to see friends and have a nice weekend in my other home
