I know I do not post onto my own website that much, and many would think it is because there is Facebook, Twitter, and Google+ available for posting. Why bother with a personal website that you have o pay for when there are free options available?
Well, it is not because of the free options that I have not been posting to this website.
The truth is that I tend to get so caught up in other things that I end up not working with this site and it just sits here and lags.
Well, not anymore.
Now, I am going to set this site up to be the main source of information, and from here it will post to Facebook and Twitter and Google+ and any other social network I decide to send it to. No more leaving this site sitting around collecting the electronic equivalent of the dust that is collecting on my Mac and eventually onto my iPad (when I get my hands on a Microsoft Surface Pro!)
And speaking of Microsoft…
If you have not yet upgraded your computers to Windows 8, I suggest you do so immediately! This is quite possibly the most amazing version of Windows ever created!
It is super easy to use, looks absolutely wonderful, and is so stable I managed to max out my 8 gig of RAM and it didn’t go into the dreaded BSOD.
I am loving myself some Windows 8 right now! I installed it onto my Toshiba laptop and plan to also install it on my desktop soon. It is just that good!
In other news, I managed to survive another semester in college. Only three more semesters to go before I am back into the working world… or maybe grad school. The semester ended just before Christmas, and I didn’t get my final grades until after Christmas. I got 4 As and 1 B, and I have to tell you that getting that B is totally amazing since I was failing the course at the middle of the semester! But I managed to pull it out! And not only that, but brought my GPA up from a 3.29 to a 3.44 overall!
Now I have a full schedule for the next semester starting at the end of January. 18 credit hours, commuting Monday through Friday, and there from 8 AM until as late as 10:30 PM. It’s going to be hectic, especially since I have a Statistics class, and I can’t stand Stats! I have already dropped it once, but it is a required class for my degree, so I have to take it eventually.
At least this time when I take it, it is being taught by someone who was born in the area, and not someone who barely speaks English. I swear, the man said Toyota Corolla twelve times, and I had no clue what he was saying until he wrote it on the board. Stats is complicated enough without throwing in a barely comprehensible professor into the mix!
Also in the schedule is Introduction to Ethics, which is interesting because even the professor teaching it says you can’t teach ethics. We’ll see where this goes!
Everything else in my schedule is related to my Accounting and/or Finance majors. Yes, I am dual majoring! And it is amazing how many people say I am crazy for doing it, but the simple truth is that by adding the second major I only added 1 semester and 4 classes to my workload, spread out over a three year period. It was a no-brainer in my book!
But then again, many of the people who are saying I am crazy are about half my age. And it seems to me that the younger generation aren’t as eager to move up the ladder as my generation is/was.
But that it is another post altogether!
Anyway, time to move along, and quit boring all of you with my rambling.
But before I go, just one last thing. My plan is to keep to a more set schedule of posts. I have not decided if it is going to be once a week, or twice a week, or what have you, but I will be using this site more often.
Now, to get to studying for the tests I have to take before the semester starts!
