I haven't really written one of these posts in awhile and thought it was time to give you guys an update on what is happening in my life!
So I recently switched jobs which I mentioned in this post. So far everything is going well. Everyone is super nice so far and I felt immediately accepted as part of the team. In comparison to my other job, it is just a more laid back atmosphere and even though it is a much busier pharmacy, it doesn't really feel that way because there is more staff to handle it and you don't feel like you are doing the work of 2-3 people. The only thing that I am having trouble accepting is that it is a lot more disorganized. In my personal life I am not the most organized person, like my bedroom is rarely super clean, but in my work life I am super organized so it gives me a little anxiety..LOL So that is something that will probably take awhile to get used to.
As far as hours go, I am getting less hours that my old job, but I have been working about 1 day at week at the old place still, so overall it is working out to be the same amount of money or more per pay. I am confident that eventually I will be full time, and overall it was the right decision for me.
Tomorrow I am going to sign up for an online course which is part of something called the Bridging Program for Pharmacy Technicians. We have to take 4 college courses and then write some exams in order to be "registered" with the Ontario College of Pharmacy. This will give us the ability to sign off on a prescription, as well as other bigger responsibilities. The first course that I will be taking will be about $262.00. I am going to request some of my vacation pay from my old job to cover the cost of that. It won't start until January 2011 but there is limited spots and I want to make sure I get in. I am definitely not looking forward to homework!!
A girl at work lent me the book The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. Just wondering if anyone has read it and what are your thoughts?
