Oh!!! Bless your heart and soul!!! Vet Nurses are VERY special people,as are Vets and anyone else who cares for our beloved Fur Babies!! I owe so very much to my wonderful vets who have cared for all the animals in my life over the years.
Yes after I had done an extra year at school doing a secretarial course I did various jobs in that capacity.....went back and got my mature age leaving (as it was called in those days) which helped me get more money in my permanent Govt Job.....left tha t8 years ago and did a course to become a Marriage Celebrant which I am still doing ......it is part time although at present seems like full time (busiest time of the year)
Went straight into workforce, but that job entailed much, & continuous study for the rest of my career.
At one five year 'span' I was doing an Exam. every six months' to keep my then position, up-to-date. Never worried me as I loved my job & I always obtained exceptionally high marks.
To my retirement, various Courses had to be completed to remain 'current' in Certification.
I went from year 10 straight into the work force. At some stage after our daughters had started school, I did an 'Introduction to Business Management' Tafe course, only because a friend said I would be able to do it! It was 6 subjects in 6 months, 1 day a week! Even my friend didn't reliese it was going to be so difficult & she's a smart person! If I'd known before hand it would involve exams, I'd never have started it in the 1st place! And I had to...essays, which I knew nothing about. It was a total disaster, but I did enjoy painting my nails a different colour each week to match what I'd be wearing to the next class! Yes, I failed every exam! Luckily, it was a free cause! I remember 2 of the woman from the course teamed up afterwards & started a business together, but it was no use to me whats so ever, as I'd never had any intentions of started a business!
