First Post!

Okay, so this is pretty exciting - and yet, I don't know where to begin.

I guess, like I do with engineering tours, I'll start by telling you a little bit about myself.

I'm writing because I've been asked by Engineering Outreach to blog about what it's like being a student in McMaster Engineering - to share my experiences in a typically male-dominated field of study, as well as classes, extracurricular involvement, and life in Hamilton (I'm originally from Scarborough, but moved just before high school to Burlington). My program is Engineering Physics & Society with co-op, and I'm minoring in music - graduating in 2011! I'm specializing in Nano- and Micro-Device Engineering, and looking forward to having the most ridiculously long degree name when I graduate.

I'll also be writing about career stuff - job-hunting for after graduation, previous work experiences (researching in Ireland beats all others, hands-down) - and introducing you to some of the awesome eng students on campus here.

As a final note - I've blogged for friends and family before, but never for an unknown audience . So if you have any questions or suggestions of what you'd like me to write about, definitely let me know! Drop me a line in the comments or the little Skribit box on the left. I'd be happy to answer them - and I'm not shy about being honest.

Okay, my schedule for this week is staring me down right now, filled with reports, assignments, some early midterms and a driving test for my G license. I'll check in later this week when there's time for a bit of a breather. See you then!
