Registered for summer classes, no may term this year, just two classes at once, June through beginning of August. Looking forward to my final two classes, but still a lot of work to do this semester, first. MySQL and PHP workshop going really well. Digital Curation is full of the reading. Information Storage and Retrieval continues to be interesting and fun with Excel.

Did not get the jobs I interviewed for, so time to get back to applications. More managerial changes at the store. I don’t know that it’s ever going to settle down. But on we go. I’ll have to start looking at fall internships soon, too.

In gaming, Tesla West is winding down, and we’re headed back to Faerun. I’m bringing back the Gnome Paladins – Roondar’s great-great nephew. Should be a blast. We’re play-testing 2nd Legacy.

My third class started this week. It is reading heavy and assignment light, or so it seems. But all that reading on top of the other two classes is making for a very busy week. More cut and paste for the PHP class, but working with more loops and such now. Everything is going pretty well.

More new management and a handful of new employees at the store. Lots of new faces. Still waiting on word myself. But things are going pretty well. Even got heat in receiving recently, and this week, we fixed the heater from setting off the burglar alarms, too.

Some late Valentine’s parties with friends this weekend. So, I’ve got to get ahead on homework tonight. Really should take down the Christmas cards on my bookcase… 😉

Hope everyone had a good day, whether celebrating, or not. At the very least, I hope everyone had a Safe day. The sudden blizzard was pretty terrible for people driving. It also made work pretty quiet.

Belated Happy Birthday to Uncle John, his birthday was nearly a week ago, as I’m very late in posting this week.

School is good. This was the second week of a session, so everything was already posted. The new workshop went really well for the first week. Looks like it’s going be fun. Next class starts Monday, too. Busy, busy, busy.

Had a great time going out to the movies with friends last night.

I knew it was a busy month, but where did January go?  Right then, moving forward. My PHP/MySQL workshop starts on Monday. Bought the textbook today (Sams), might borrow the various supplemental books from the library. Can’t afford four computer books, sorry Professor. Looking forward to the class, though. Session 2 of first class has begun, evaluating systems, wee fun.

Looking forward to another weekend with friends. Happy Birthday to my nephew, on Friday! Ice and snow filled this past week, but things are looking slightly better the next few days. I like winter, I just wish I didn’t have to drive in it.

Not much else to say…work, school, friends. It’s a pretty good life. 🙂
