2 years ago I made an education change in my life. Previously I had worked my way to an A.A. degree in liberal arts and then transferred to a University and majored in interdisciplinary studies with a focus on psychology and communications. I had 4 classes in on that B.A. degree when I asked myself what can I do with this degree in regards to the place I work. I could not answer that so I decided to change direction and play with the computer field.
I transferred back to the college I got my A.A. degree in and took up Computer networking beginning with A+ . That is learning about the basics of the computer. Both hard drive and software. I found it hard overall. I have not transitioned to doing network fundamentals and this involved routing with Cisco. A fascinating field and yet very technical. It is an 8 week class and my fear is like the last class I took under this heading. Too much information in such a short period of time can lead to brain overload.
This class is online. My wife is also taking an online class but her class runs the full semester. I told her we might fight for the computer but then again I have a laptop so maybe I should use it? ha
Yet the B.A. I was working on comes back to haunt me. I think it is because I feel a more natural being in that field and even journalism has fascinated me a great deal in the last year yet I don't know how constructively I could use such a thing in my currently profession. I might be able to use it but at this moment in time I am ignorant in that knowledge. So, in the meantime I am learning network fundamentals and how computers talk to each other and the use of IP addresses.
