Welcome to my CIS 153 class

All I have to say if you’re from my CIS 153 AW Online Access class (wow, that’s a finger-full) is: “Wow, you actually clicked that link.” I really didn’t think anybody would come (and as I’m writing this I may yet be proven right). Anyway, this is my humble little blog. If you’re not from CIS 153 and came to this page because I had a new entry and though you might see something witty… well, there’s never anything witty at this page. But if you though you might see something new about me or my plans, about as close as I can come to that is that I’m in an online Access database class (yes, even though I don’t like Microsoft, I still learn their software).

School’s starting soon….

Has anybody else noticed a decrease in my posting frequency since I bought Star Wars Galaxies has decreased significantly? If you haven’t, I certainly have. My other online activities have also fallen by the wayside (such as Bugzilla‘s documentation. Heck, bugzilla.mozilla.org transferred to their new server and I didn’t even know it until I was actually going through my bugmail and clicked on one of the links to get more information. So let that be a lesson to you: don’t buy Star Wars Galaxies… it’s full of bugs and extremely addicting (does that even seem like a possible combination?). Maybe now that schools starting I’ll play games less and accomplish more. Maybe.

I’m baaack

Annual Training is now over and I have returned to my home. For those who are curious, I qualified Expert on the M-16 (rifle) and Marksman on the M-9 (Pistol). I am really disappointed by my score w/the 9mm… so much so that I’m probably going to purchase one before next year so I can practice. We also performed some MOUT training. That was a lot of fun, even though I died before I even made it into the building when it was my platoon’s turn to assault.

I may be going away again tomorrow depending on if I can get the time off work or not. My friend’s sister is graduating basic training and I’ve been asked to go to Fort Jackson with them and attend the graduation. My biggest problem with that is money… I’m not exactly rich and I’ll have to pay for my own hotel room.

Speaking of money, I finally got my check from MCC to reimburse me for what the Government paid on my behalf for last semester’s tuition (yes, the semester that ended over a month ago). Other good news on that front is that I have a schedule ready to rock to that will allow me to get my associates degree at the end of this next semester… it only took me 6 1/2 years.
