Still waiting...

Only two weeks until I hear back about Mac Interviews!!!!! *fingers crossed*

I'm also still looking for advice from anyone who has been to an admissions interview for OT before... whether it was at McMaster or elsewhere. If you've been to one... or conducted one!!... please comment.

Other than that life is just really busy right now. I'm beginning the data analysis on my thesis this week, and have a meeting with my advisors on Wednesday to discuss it. The thesis itself is due in two weeks!! I can't believe the year has gone by so fast. And I also can't believe how much work I have to do in the next two weeks! Yikes!

I've also been invited to go to a local grade 11 Psychology/Sociology/Anthropology high school class to talk about what it's like to be a Psyc major. I think that will be pretty fun, and I had fun putting together the presentation itself.

Then the weekend of April 4th I've volunteered to be a student rep at the Psyc Dept's table for my University's Open House weekend. I did it in the fall too and it was really fun. I enjoyed answering all the students' questions and helping to put their minds at ease. Plus, we get free lunch! :)

And I'm just putting the finishing touches on my Statistics Exam-Aid session for the second year students. I host a session before each exam and all the money raised goes to charity. I usually have about 20 students come out and the feedback I've had on the session in the past has been really positive. It makes it a really rewarding, feel-good thing to do... so although it sounds weird to most people to call anything to do with statistics "fun"... I really do enjoy it.

So, the moral of the story is I have lots to keep me busy in the here and now. But my mind is elsewhere, focused on my goal... occupational therapy.

Wish me luck!! :)
