Well it is Monday and we should all be back to work physically…LOL. I trust that everyone had a great weekend. I think I may have asked that question already so I apologize. Nothing really on tap today as far as interesting topics so, I will rant for a few minutes.
I was able to finally get my school registration taken care of. I’m going BACK to get my Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer (MCSE) rating. Hopefully, this will be the time when I can actually get the nose to the grindstone and get’r done as they say in some parts of the U.S. This will be a long time coming since I have been in IT since 2000. I’ve had my share of really great jobs and really not-so-great jobs. All of which have helped me make my decision to pursue this certification. I love computers and am greatly interested in how they work both individually as well as in the grand scheme of things on a local as well as worldwide level. It’s really funny that, many years ago, we really didn’t expect the personal computer to take the world by storm as it did and is continuing to do. When we think about those times back when only the “important people” had such gadgetry, it amazes me how far we’ve come in the short amount of time that we have. Make no mistake, I will blog form my BlackBerry from time to time for the sake of convenience but , I wonder what life would be like without such devices .
I just got a call from the workforce agency here in town. They were calling regarding a job that they had that I was qualified for. It really amazes me that, when I was actually looking for work, things were scarce from my perspective but now that I am employed (thank GOD for a job), they are calling to see if I would be interested. Just so you know I declined because I am employed (again praising GOD), and it would be better for someone that does NOT have a job to take that one because there is always someone worse off than we are. I pray that someone that is in a less than fortunate situation than I am is able to get that gig. Granted, it may not be as glamorous as expected or anticipated, but hey, steady, HONEST income is far better than none at all. Whoever is reading this, if you know of someone that is looking for work, I encourage you…no, I implore you to give a helping hand. You never know when that hand that you keep to yourself will be the very same hand that will be extended in that time of need that we dread so much.
How many of us are on Twitter? Just about everyone, I assume. I haven’t been tweeting very long but it has been a pretty cool experience overall. I don’t have many followers but I am thankful for the ones I have because they are pretty good people. You never know what is on a person’s mind until you actually read some of the tweets that they put out there LOL. The people that I follow are usually sending messages of uplift and inspiration. I know that sounds corny but it’s true. Don’t get me wrong we talk about everything but I get to see some really positive things from these people I follow. I do follow a few celebrities but they are not in tune with what I feel is relevant to me in my opinion. No disrespect to them at all but they have so many folks following them that they will never respond to a tweet I sent with their @username in it. They have things to say relevant to them so it’s all good.
Ok, now for sports. The 2009 football season is winding down and I must say I’m really down about that. It seems like yesterday that pre-season was just here and NOW we’re gearing up for the playoffs. I was telling a friend that during the off-season, I was so stir crazy that I even sat through a CFL game. How’s that for an addiction? LOL I’m not a real fan of the NBA (AKA professional streetball), and I won’t really start looking at college hoops until football is done so, I’m at a crossroads here. The NHL is cool (no pun intended), but I haven’t seen a real game since there aren’t any games on ESPN due to their strike a few years back. Oh well, such is life.
Ok, that about wraps it up for now. Until next time…
