This Week...

Women in the Trades

School is EXCELLENT. Truly. I couldn't be more pleased!
The Women in my class are brilliant. We range in age from 22 to 48. We have very diverse backgrounds, education and lives...We are all capable, supportive, intelligent, talented and strong. I am looking forward to seeing where we all go from here...
I am still leaning towards becoming a Machinist. I will have to move away for a year to do the training but I am fine with that...The area, about 130km from my home, is beautiful and will be wonderful for photography! Though I dread renting again...

How has your week been? Anything exciting?

Sorry I have not been visiting but I am so busy with school and keeping a regular schedule...It is wonderful and tiring...After next week I should be able to do the things that keep my life balanced, which includes visiting you, taking photographs, reading and writing...And snuggling with Ms. Drooke. She is not a happy cat this week! ;)

Nothing like learning with a group who has similar goals...I did that once in Massachussetts and it was a blast. I did machining for nearly two years Andrea when I was in graduate school. I had to design and build parts of my instrument. I was so lucky to be learning from a pro at OakRidge. I think you would make a grand machinist...requires a lot of perfection and that you have for sure! My world is super busy, no assistants for two weeks and classes to teach on top of lab...ayee, I love the pressure only because when it is off then I take deep long breaths...have a lovely weekend...xoxo

You know what's really cool? Newfoundland women are some of the most hardworking, capable, roll-up-their-sleeves-and-getter-done women I know. My friend Meg almost single-handedly renovated and sold her house, and now she and her husband are doing another one together. Her skills amaze me and I'm proud to say that so do you! You are going to rock this course!
