Wow, this is going to be a tough semester, I can tell already.

Calculus, Philosophical Ethics, Argument based research, and Engineering Graphics. I think their is enough paper in these textbooks to safely say that thousands of squirrels and birds are now homeless. I'm already busy enough to know I won't be picking up the Java book until this...

I have been putting off this post for too long, mostly because I didn’t really have much to say. I’ve been slacking, I guess the holidays will do that too you.

I was forced into hanging out with the family this Christmas. As I expected the pleasantries were forced and no one really enjoyed the time together. Didn’t get much sleep the night before...

Hmm, I wonder if it would be possible to actually use the blog as a notebook and open it to critique from professionals and such to hear different sides of what I am learning, that would be pretty interesting. The idea itself is fascinating to me to just think what I might learn from it. This blog would have to grow first before that happens, maybe some day...

I have been getting into a few things this evening. I finally dusted off the old server and fired it up looking for some projects to work on. Ended up making cleaning out the server from old projects that are no longer in production it’s own project. Nothing too exciting.
Then I started looking into ‘how-tos’ for professional level employment. That...

Wow, my it has been quite some time since I had last posted on here. I look back through my last couple of posts and that all feels like the far far past to me. So much has changed in my life and career I don't really know where to start. Well, lets take a shot at it. (Does anyone read these anyways? lol :P)

So I am out of foster care! Probably the...

Another blurb from me. Need to relieve some stress...

Ugh so after I graduated high school, I thought it would be a nice break from school and a breather until college.

...boy was I wrong.

Shortly after graduated I had just started to coast a bit and work my job over at the call center, things were great! I was working the weekends and just being lazy,...

K, this one is going to about a bunch of random topics so shy away if you don't want too read.


So life has continued on with very little to no events lately, I have been sitting around the house not doing too much, learning a bit of WinAPI programming here and there. So far it is... difficult to say the least. ( I have a few other choice words I would...


My journey to freelancing a career!

So a few days ago I got a job working at a computer shop, I was excited because I could finally get some credibility for my abilities. I thought all was well until tuesday when I got chewed out by the bossman because I didn't have the multitasking ability to handel repairing 16 computers at once. I was a little upset that he only cared about quantity...
