Not even a week after my 21st birthday, I’m feeling really good about life in general. Even though school is taking up a lot of my time, I’m finally in a class with a good group of peers to keep me focused on my goal. Even with that being said, life would be a lot easier if I decided to not go through the Cisco boot camp. But it’s always worth it when you feel drained in the end, right? I really don’t know if I’m going to try for certification in May but if I end up surviving, I’m sure Mr. G would probably fill my inbox with emails until I tried. I guess that’s one positive thing about age, though. You learn how to deal with failure and use it to get your real goals accomplished. I wish I had that mentality on life when I was younger. I’d much rather sit back and not swing the bat out of fear but it’s not like that anymore. School is probably going to play a small role in this journal since I’ll probably refer back to these entries when I feel like saying ‘fuck it’ from time to time.
Boy does it suck being unemployed this time of year. With the unemployment rate going up every month, I’m starting to think that I won’t be able to find anything until after I get my degree. But that certainly bode well for all the rapid-fire of releases coming up from now and to the end of the year. One positive thing coming out of school would be the refund check I’ll be receiving from financial aid to finally get a new computer. My own machine is obsolete and I feel like it’s time to really have something nice of my own. I enjoy using Corey’s laptop but I want to have something of my own.
On a high note, I finally started being active again on Gaia. It’s lame that things have changed a lot but the BetterGaia add-on for Firefox have made things more tolerable. I don’t really have a large appetite for any of the new items but my desire for more art is still burning. But with that forces me to be patient and I’m not the most patient man in the world. Hopefully my love for Gaia will go back to where it was in 05 when I was active every single day.
To finally wrap this up, I’ll say that I’ve been trying to limit myself to emails and other accounts because I feel like I have too many. I think I’ll try to make one that is personal and another one that will be for whatever. It’s been fun writing all of this but I think it’s time to run a few more rounds in Street Fighter or BlazBlue.
