I have many interesting, fresh, hot off needle craft projects (maybe it’s cool now =P) want to show (including my first quilt, my dad’s vest, my crochet kitten cushion, my snap purse… stay tuned)! Maybe this weekend, when I have a chance to use the camera.
How about my engineering work? So far, it’s kinda busy and boring mixed, and it’s far less challenging than what I expected. In the pass four months, I went to bridges along Hwy 427 and did “body check” for each bridge, the so called “condition survey” project. For all overpasses I had to go at night and stayed until sunrise, with teammates, of course. It’s physically challenged, but I was fine with it, giving that I was well trained at Eng Sci. If I get paid premium for doing night shift, I would be happier.
Back at the office, I was busy producing condition survey reports. It’s all done in Excel, Word and AutoCad. The worse thing ever is, I HAVE NO ACCESS to INTERNET. It took quite a while for me to get use to that. When my manager asked me for any “unsatifactions”. I was honest and told him what I want. But he said even the head manager didn’t get access to Internet. Well…
But I was happy too. My supervisors seemed pleased with my performance and the division manager keep reminding me that if I am happy with SNC-Lavalin, I can just come back after graduation. Interview is my weakest weakness. No interview and resume and cover letter? How nice!
Do I satisfy my work quality? No, not yet! This is my first engineering job. I have too many things to learn and to improve. After finishing the condition survey project. I am going to draft construction drawings and maybe a bit structural analysis calculations. I am looking forward to learning more!
Hahahah... I got a few photos from my sister that I fogot to mention. Look:
After thousands days of knitting and crochet, I finally got my yarn swift and winder set from the Kitchener-Waterloo Knitter’s Fair that I went with my another sister (the one goes to University of Waterloo) in September. Even she, not an avid knitter (means she knows how to knit but not knit at all) couldn’t resist to try my new toy.
Today she phoned and told me that she got her coop job at Manulife as an Actuary Student. Congrats!
Also, two weeks ago, I went to Algonquin Park with my friends. We were hoping to see beautiful maple leaves. Yeah, we saw leaves, but on the ground! It's too late for us. Sometimes timing is just important.
