I wish you were one now so you could come here and fix our stupid bridge. It's been closed due to cracks and won't be reopened until next year.

I'm in my final year of my second degree in GeoChemistry. My first degree was "Life Sciences" which was basically for people in science who couldn't make up their mind. My course load was mainly filled with psych classes and geography courses.

I initially wanted to be a Neuroscientist, but the program was re-evaluated and it suddenly had prerequisites that I couldn't get.

Now I'm in Geochem, and my course list for this semester is:
- Aquatic BioGeoChemistry (I owe this class all my water chem knowledge)
- Optical Crystallography (Physics of optics in minerals and rocks)
- Beginner's Latin (I was taking Japanese before but poor Iwai-sensei didn't have funding to do 4th year Japanese)
- Climate (We basically talk about the science part behind climate)
- Astronomy: Origins of the Universe (IN MY OPINION, this class is like review of all the physics I have ever taken, minus the math. We LEARN about Force = mass*gravity but we never have to use it in class. I sleep a lot in this class, my engineer friends who are also in the class and I dub it "naptime" class. There are people in that class who type FRANTICALLY though)

If I can't get a job working for my Chem prof, then I will try to get a job in the government (MNR) or maybe take some bio courses and be a Marine BioChemist. That would be fun, since I have my scuba diving certification :D

Too many people have opinions on things they know nothing about. And the more ignorant they are, the more opinions they have.

Graduated with a degree in business management right when I found out I was pregnant with my second child. I've been a SAHM since. (with the exception of working for a local yarn dyer for a month).

Well don't you guys make me feel stoopid! I'm just a regular stay at home Mom. I had my son at a young age (23, he's 3.5 now) and decided to raise him and his sister (19m) instead of going off to Uni or college. When they go to school, I plan on going back and becoming and LPN (Nurse) or PCW (Personal Care Worker). Something that makes money and guarantees a job when I complete.

Just because you're a stay at home mom doesn't mean you're stupid. You're just trying to raise your kids.

I really admire stay at home moms - being a mom is a full-time job! (I wouldn't know, but this is from what others have told me)

My mom was a SAHM when she had my sister and me. She's obviously gone back to work since then. She stayed home until my sister was in kindergarten, and since she worked at the same school where I went to preschool, she started work again then.

My mum gave up her job to have us and I'm am so grateful to her for always being there when we needed her. Now that my sister and I are both in uni she has got a Business Certificate III and is planning to find a job as a personal secretary.

Never underestimate the wonderful work that SAHMs do. :)
