I dropped in on Shirley Mills today and told her about my new job.

Shirley Mills really helped me learn statistics. I claim she is a mentor of mine. She is a professor of statistics at Carleton university and encouraged me to learn SAS. Her encouragement really helped me in school a place of extreme elitism and bullying. Believe me some of the most respected professors are in fact bullies of knowledge and I can think of no other job that does not set an image of a snob to my mind. But I found Shirley to be supporting and her lectures on statistics are interesting and challenging. May be in a year or two I will be able to write a Ph.D in statistics with her as supervisor.
