Career

It's been an interesting and fast week for me. I'm so glad that it's Friday, although I still have a lot to do. I'm still working on not doing work/school of any kind, one day a week. It's hard, but necessary. Do any of you find not working on something & taking a break, hard as well?

I finished my small business workshop and it was good. There was a lot of information to take in and much more to learn. I know I'll be back for assistance as I move along in the process, but the general knowledge intake is over with. I know that there is a lot to do as a sole proprietor, but seeing the actual the check list, is more than a little daunting. Doable but daunting. The business side is intimidating as well, but learning it, is a necessary evil. The Excel spread sheets are not my favourite but I see the use, since they do the calculations for me. Math has never been my strong point. This (being my own boss) is what I've wanted for years, so I have to pull up my sleeves and dive right in.

Off to a meeting and more JAVA. Have a great weekend!

Excuse my long absence, but life got busy. Then I needed to do only what needed to get done, or only what I wanted to do.

My last semester of school did not end on the high note that I wanted it to, but it could have been a lot worse. I could have dropped the entire semester and came back to finish it this January. As things sit I did not pass my last course and I will be retaking it, as soon as I get the okay from the program coordinator in the next few days. I was learning something new, I lost too much time, and could not catch up. I tried until the last day but.... I'm still waiting for 2 of my 6 marks but I'm sure that I passed those ones.

I'm not going to beat myself up because I had a lot on my plate and I could have just given up. The only thing left to do is retake the course, get a great grade and continue on. I have my business plan to work on, my logo, website, etc. That was supposed to be at least started in the last quarter of 2014, but life happened. So it's getting done currently. More updates on that as they occur.

I've been surprisingly busy during the day, there's always something to do, or somewhere to go. So I haven't really caught up on sleep or rest. I can't wait until I can go away, somewhere. I do have some plans in mind and will share, when everything is finalized. I'd like it to be all about me, for at least a week. Who knows if it's possible but I'd like to try. That's it for now, I'm tired and I have a list of stuff to get done today. Have a great weekend!
