so, the sick health sci fuck that i am, i actually have time to write in this.|
everyone else is off studying, quiet hours have ensued and although i do have some work left....my hell week was last week. from here on in everything is pretty nice and spread out, so as long as i stay remotely on top of things i should be okay. at least for a little while.
last week was madness every health sci looked crazed all week long... well until thursday, myself most definitely included.
okay so i started writing out last week but i think random point form will work better:
- sunday before last i meet aaron's dad and sisters for brunch on little to no sleep and could barely keep my eyes open let alone sustain a conversation
- dance shows this past weekend (three of them), which meant rehearsals and tech rehearsals to fit in all week
- a psychobio essay to write with 6 other people, probably a good 50 hours of my life consumed by this essay (in the last week). the night before it's due we realize one of the sections was written completely wrong and had to be redone. on wednesday i spend from 3:30 pm to 4:30 am with my essay group..... randoms in the student centre give us a pizza at 2 am, we don't question it.
- i also meet with b.rog prior to this 14 hour psychobio marathon. he told me of the many strange happenings at the rogers' household namely, the domestication of jean sue jim - i told him about aaron. we have a good heart to heart and a tour of campus.
- after a three hour nap post psychobio essay i present my other major group project due on thursday
-friday night rolls around and all my friends come to my show. post show celebrations are planned. i am the guest of honor. we toast to me, and a bad combo of a stressful, sleep deprived, emotionally/physically draining week and a bit of underlying homesickness mixed with a bit of vodka and red bull (intended to keep me awake)- backfires miserably. a hollywood-style emotional breakdown scene ensues with a drunken, crying couple professing their love.
- saturday morning is ugly, we don't speak of it. other scandals of friday surface. tensions grow.
-the rest of the weekend is full of long and in depth conversations that go late into the night.
-like the end of a sitcom, aaron's roommate comes back to res on monday morning and asks, if we had a good friday night, how our weekend was and if he missed anything major. i roll over and laugh - aaron says no.
- and i will leave you with this award named after my father - that's right the B A Rogers award. i think i mentioned it to some of you before.
Here is the email we sent out announcing the creation of the Brian A.
Rogers award and identifying Erin Higdon as the 2005 recipient.
We sent this notification to all PICAs (knowing you have friends in
Institute offices across the country), all Atlantic ATOs and all Faculty
Representatives in the Region.
I have had nothing but positive comments from anyone who has learned
about the award.
All the best
Great work deserves great praise...ASCA announces new award
The Atlantic School of Chartered Accountancy (ASCA) is pleased to
announce the creation of the Brian A. Rogers Award -- recognizing
outstanding academic achievement in the ASCA Professional Program.
Named in honor of Brian Rogers, FCA, a partner with KPMG LLP's Calgary
office (and previously a partner with the firm's Halifax office), ASCA's
new award was established to recognize the many contributions Brian has
made to professional accounting education. Over the years, he's had a
significant impact on the education process for chartered accounting
candidates, both in Atlantic Canada and across the country. In
particular, Brian served on the ASCA Board from 1990 - 1993 (Chair in
1993), as a Member of the Blueprint for Change Task Force from 2000 -
2001, and chaired the Professional Program Implementation Committee from
2001 - 2002. At the national level he was a member of the
Interprovincial Education Committee from 1993 - 1995 and the
Qualification Committee from 2003 - 2004.
"Brian is a strong cheerleader for the CA profession and the ASCA
program. In fact, his enthusiasm has been the deciding factor in a
number of students' decisions to pursue their CA designation," says Dan
Trainor, ASCA's Executive Director.
The recipient of the 2005 Brian A. Rogers Award is Erin Higdon, a
graduate of Memorial University. Erin, who works for
PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP in St. John's, Newfoundland, achieved the
highest average in the ASCA professional program and was successful on
the 2005 UFE.
