Eye opening in terms of how differently companies work. I had two internships in different fields and the culture / style of operation varied vastly. That said, my experience was pretty much what I expected in terms of learning and gaining experience, no more no less. I think I'm pretty fortunate compared to my friends who ended up in actuarial positions that make them unhappy

currently in my first year. learning a ton and love the fact that i am trusted to have my work done without someone babysitting me. it's quite encouraging.

So far I have had about 4 hours of work a day on average. I feel so much guilt tbh. I am in a start-up and the first actuarial student.

I remember like in the first 6 months, I didn't even have time to go eat lunch, because there were so many urgent shit going on.

I have MLC in 2 months. I am trying to start studying more. I am trying to work my way to 2 hours a day. My attention span is shot however. I need to re-build my studying tolerance. After C my brain went on vacation. So far I can do an hour a day or 90 min before getting cabin fever.
