Wake up early and grab breakfast from the Dunkin Donuts in the Campus Center – I always get the same thing, so they always see me coming!
I work at the Library’s Information Technology Services Helpdesk, assisting students, faculty, and staff with their email accounts, computer questions, etc.
Time to put in some hour studying for my Actuary Exam – the department’s curriculum is set up to prepare you for the first two Society of Actuaries (SoA) examinations.
At the end of a busy day, I head back to my apartment in the evening for dinner and relaxation.
