Going Back to School

I started taking night classes at the JC to bump up my education in the IT field. I was hired on as a techie, but I didn’t have the right kind of education to back it up. I got by on my charm alone! πŸ˜‰
So now that I’ve been with my company for almost 3 years, I decided it’s about time I hone up on my skills. A degree in Zoology isn’t exactly going to cut it in the IT industry. So I’m in a beginning networking class, learning the ropes.

I felt like such a nerd because I was so excited about bringing my new fancy laptop bag to class, and my
Custom usb drive with my company’s name on the side. Even when I was a little girl I liked new school supplies. The smell of new pencils, the shiny new binder with my favorite stickers on it. I guess even in my 20s that new school supplies excitement hasn’t worn off.

I missed college a lot after I graduated, but now I’m remembering all the stuff I didn’t miss. Deadlines, quizzes, reading assignments. ACK! Now if I were only in school this wouldn’t be so bad, but I’m got a full time job too. And a blog I like to keep fairly up to date. Guess which one is getting neglected? πŸ˜‰ So hopefully this semester I’ll be able to do this juggling act. If you don’t see me update my posts, or if I’m all of a sudden doing book reviews on Windows Command Line, you’ll know it’s because that’s the only book I’ll have time to read!!

  1. The balance thing is really hard. I did the same thing you did last semester and took an accounting class to back up my job. I did well.. but I’ll be honest… I didn’t enjoy school. Good luck! I could probably do with some techy info anyway πŸ™‚
