It's been a little while since I've blogged. I do apologize, but I haven't been in the right headspace to blog. Now, I have to catch you up on the current events.
First off, check out my description over there on the right. Did you notice anything different?? Look again... Still no? I updated my little descriptor blurb regarding my new status. I am once again an upstanding and productive member of society! Yes, that's right folks, I found a job. Doing what?
I'm now one of the newest Level 1 Tech Support specialists for Single Digits, Inc. Sounds really important, doesn't it? Basically, I answer phones and help people connect to the internet from their hotels. Granted, it's not my IDEAL position. (that would be writing software) but it's paying the bills (barely) and learning some more detailed networking & troubleshooting can't exactly hurt.
I'm also working on learning VB.NET, which is the latest version of Visual Basic. It seems that my knowledge of VB6 isn't enough to get me a job, so I have to get "back to school", so to speak. Visual Basic 2008 (VB.NET with a friendlier title) is extremely interesting and I have some projects in mind to help me get into it. I love learning so this will be fun.
Last bit of news: one of my roommates has gone off to the Old World to explore and enjoy life. While I'm happy that she's on a new life adventure, I'm sad to see her go.
