I’ve done some drugs, I’ve dabbled in the hood life, I’ve dabbled in various electronics and ultimately tried to become a better person than I was when I was younger. I’ve partied, slept around, lived “celibate”, I’ve done a bit of everything since I finally got out on my own – even that entailed moving back in with family after it was all said and done. The point is that things are coming along a lot BETTER than I originally thought. I was such a pessimist in those days – probably more of a nihilist than anything, but I suppose I’m still just as nihilistic as I was in those days.
I started ECPI last year year – more correctly, about 15 months ago, and I’ve got about three months left in my first round with them – 90 days! Can you believe it? In 90 days, I’m going to have my Assoc Degree! Something that I never thought was going to happen, is finally going to happen! It’s going to be a short but intense road, and then it’s back for 2.5 more years for a Bachelor’s Degree – after that, it’s onward and upwards into the job field as a system admin – which is all I think I’ll be able to do with a network security degree.
