Thanks for the wishes.
You've got time to do that calculus **** later if you find out you need it.

Independent IT consultant (programmer) doing .gov contracts. Not glamorous by any means like a startup, but pays well and still .gov hours so no complaints.

And unfortunately no I can't get you a contract/job as I and anyone else who signs a contract for over $25k with the .gov has to go through one of the body shops who bid on the RFPs, who take 10-30% to do very little.

Was at uOttawa for poli sci, but decided it wasn't for me.

Don't know what to do next year, but right now I am working at a golf course

Public Service. I work with a group that deals with bad guys trying to get into Canada, as well as ones that are already in.
It sounds more exciting than it really is. Lots of reading files and case notes. Also can't give much more info...for security reasons

Work for an Orthopedic surgical distributor, work in the "loaner" department. Essentially I maintain a huge inventory of surgical "kits" (basically an all in one toolbox for surgeons to perform procedures). Super stressful, need 100% accuracy in EVERYTHING, but its a means to an end, I certainly don't plan on doing the same job two years from now.

Funny thing is I am 1 credit away from completing a degree in Political Science at UWO (which I will be getting this year, **** YEAH). Now I'm going back full time while working to take Health Sciences and French. I'm very excited to be going back to school for something actually worthwhile. Just goes to show to all you Social Sci and Arts students out there, you never know what will happen.

Apparently my path has already been mentioned here, but yeah I'm going into B Commerce with Sports Admin. No intentions in taking my placement with a pro team, you're only going to be selling tickets that way. Hopefully use my connections in junior hockey for the intern part or another possible one with a sports agent firm thingy.

Hard to plan now, but my current intentions are to follow up Sports Admin with Law @ Dalhousie.

Currently I'm a Level II Hockey Canada Referee and ref from novice to midget house league.

I am a 5 year Little League baseball umpire, ages 15-21.

Last year I spent my entire summer on a Cree reserve in Quebec next to Hudsons bay making kick ass money as a counselor for a Sports Camp with a focus on children with special needs.

Finally, I am the 2006 A Lorne Cassidy Spelling Bee Champion.

I'm at university doing a double major in political science and economics. I dropped out a couple of years ago on my first crack at university and sold financial products for a couple of years, now I'm back and taking it seriously and it's going really well. I'm hoping to do an MBA after undergrad.

And yes, unfortunately I have to do some of that calculus **** despite my best attempts to avoid it

Just finished Radio Broadcasting at Algonquin College. Was the colour commentator for the Nepean Raiders this past season, and am hoping to get a job soon in the radio field. Have some irons in the fire. Fingers crossed! Lol

I got question for you guys. I'm majoring in English. My Uni is required to have 2 minors to go along with it. What should I minor it? So far I'm leaning in Sociology and History/Philosophy.

However, someone recently told me that it's just a waste and I should focus on English, one important minor like History/Psychology/Sociology? and one like Linguistics(Considered easy minor)
