After being a stay-at-home dad for a number of years, 10 credits from finishing a degree in Business Administration/Network Administration. It's recertification time.

So what are you studying that is stressing you out?

I have around 11 months-ish to muck these out, finish an internship, quit smoking, dial back hooch and find a viable job. I have cert'd them all before. But for some reason I feel a bit overwhelmed.....:confused:

I study computer engineering - at my university that major is a hybrid of electrical engineering and computer science. It's hard work, but pretty fun, so I generally enjoy it :)

Oh neat, you're right down the freeway. Good luck on finishing that stuff up ^_^

Almost forgot, pictures!

This was one of my last digital systems projects.. it was actually a piece to a larger project that I finished AFTER taking that picture (oh well), but yea..



Some books?



One of my fun side classes was an iOS programming class, wish I could dig up the rest of these books but I'm forgetting some right now. Hrmm..

Maya/animation, and it's especially hard because I have ideas, but I'm still a novice and can't put them together without stuff looking weird and crooked. So I'm hoping I can advance with practice.







Definitely nice having a photography background though. Even better a still life one.

My studies just ended for the summer so now I'm reading up on PHP (plus a bit about MySQL and Apache) by myself because it's fun!

Good luck on Nursing school!

Possible Nursing in a few months!
I actually had 8 years in as an Oral Surgery Tech (From my Airforce Days) that bleed into my civilian life. It was good money, and I loved the job. I earned my LVN while in college for my I.T. degrees still undecided which way I was going to go. Be a nurse like my wife? Or follow my geek-i-tude. :D

The N-CLEX is your first hurdle. This is the defacto standard to attain your LVN, which is an integral step in earning a nursing degree. If you have any background in clinical medicine is should pretty much be a breeze. If not? It's a pretty steep uphill battle in a really competitive atmosphere.
With that said? Good luck. Medicine is a really rewarding profession, there are still times I wonder if I made the right decision to damn myself to a career in cube-farms and computers screens. When the tangible reward of scrubbing in with my surgeon to repair a bilateral cleft palette on a 8 month old child, while trying, exhausting and strenuous to say the least was one of the most rewarding experiences of my life.
