Last Day of Work
Whoa! It's been a while since my last blog. My time at VEC has just been crazy! I've been kept busy doing so many jobs, and after I wrote down everything I have done here at the VEC for Shirley, I realized how much I accomplished and learned here.
It's been an exciting and very interesting time here for me, and is guaranteed to be an experience I will not forget. From catching a stray mouse to helping students change their homestays and deal with other problems with homestay, my work has been very interesting, and certainly very engaging.
I could not have asked for more out of my job here, and will utilize the skills I have acquired during my stay here the best I can. I will always be greatful to the VEC for letting me work here for the summer. I got a chance to earn some money, and to learn essential employability skills, such as how to work independently or in a group, all at the same time!
So finally, on my last day of work, all I have left to say is -
Thank You Vancouver English Centre!

I've just finished reading the draft of Brennan's blog, and I must say that I'm appalled at him. He is quoted to say that I "...break all things computer related". This is completely untrue. Technical things just happen to go wrong when I'm in close proximity to them. I have absolutely no control over them. I haven't been doing many new things, and the daysve gone by slowly. Usually the highlight of my day is my daily trip to the bank, and depending on which one I'm sent to, this can take from ten minutes to half an hour. It isn't that exciting, but it's refreshing break from a day of computer work.
Speaking of computer work, I have not had any big computer problems where I've actually had to call Vic. I'm very proud. However, I'm been doing the same thing - making web pages, so not much can go wrong with the computer, despite the fact that I'm working on it.
I really miss pool though. I haven't played in days, close to a week, and we finally got some more chalk, so that the balls don't go flying. I only hope I'll be able to play again soon. Till next time...
