Its Who You Know...

With each new day, I am learning that the old wise saying of "It's not what you know, but who you know" is TRUE!!! As most of you know, next semester is my last - YAY for me! If I don't take those classes in Winter, I have to wait a year to take them next winter before I can graduate.

Since May I have worked as the morning receptionist in the Academic and Career Advising Services as the Business College. While working here I have developed good relationships with my most of the faculty - well those that really make a difference anyway.

Last Friday the Winter 2008 schedule came out. Ben and I have decided that it would be best for me to take all night classes so that way, I can be home during the day with Baby and he can be home at night with the Monster. With that arrangement I can still graduate and he can still work his two jobs, while not having to hire a baby-sitter or anything like that.

Arranging my classes Cindy, one of the counselors in the office, came to see how it was going. She knows what all my plans are for next semester and is in favour of most of them. Winter 08 they are trying out new times for the classes, that way there is more teaching time for the teachers and college ends two weeks earlier than usual. Arranging all my classes, I discovered that two of my classes over lapped each other. That would mean I would have to take a morning class - which does not agree with the planned schedule.

So Cindy made a call to her good friend Tyler - who makes the schedule, and now all my classes work perfectly with my new night schedule. The moral of business life - it's not what you know, but who you know!
