Quote from: Ducky123 on February 21, 2016, 09:30:30 amJust about to finish my first semester studying chemistry at university  :lol

Funny how fast two years pass...

I've long since quit chemistry. I'm in training (or to use a more old fashioned word, in a scholar apprenticeship) for the same job cyberbat is working (see above posts). A medical lab assistant. I've started my second year this fall. We learn the theory at school and practise the methods and tests to the abilities we have at our school and the labs we have. It's very interesting and starting 2019 I'll actually get paid (going on strike in April helped to get our apprenticeship paid at last! :D)
My 3rd year will be practical in nature as I'll have internships in all areas (hematology, cytology, microbiology etc.). Looking forward to it :)
Note to self: finally create that signature lazy bum! :P

I drifted around a LOT after finishing my microbiology degree, mostly in pursuit of affordable insulin. The last two years have allowed me to become a QC Reviewer for cell laboratory tests, and to be honest I couldn't be happier with it. The stability and the pacing is perfect for me, and I'm able to redesign processes and, for the first time, to have a real impact on the environment around me. I just got promoted this week, and as someone who's struggled a LONG time to keep going, it's relief to know I have a spot. =)
