I just completed year one of two in the Master of Information Studies program at FIS. It’s been a crazy year professionally and personally.
The fall semester had me working two part-time jobs and keeping up with my four courses. I learned in that time that perfectionism is something that doesn’t happen in the real world. Balancing work and school, while attempting to have some social life and a relatively orderly apartment was a challenge, but I’d do it all again.
Winter semester was slightly more relaxing, but the weather was unbearable by early March. I went to my first conference, the OLA Super Conference as a volunteer, an experience that was rewarding and enlightening.
In the last six months or so, I’ve met so many inspiring people and realised that I’ve made the right decision to go back to school. At this point, my ambition to succeed is greater than it has been in a long while.
