got a transfer to a specialized call queue @ work today. (i'm to understand that's the way out of tech support.) downside is, instead of having friday off i'll be going in to training for my 9th day in a row @ the office, due to a schedule change.

apparently i need to earn that one vacation day i'm taking in early september.

oh yeah, and they're waiving the usual 90-day waiting period before i can start school for... whatever reason; so i (yes, really, actually) enroll on monday.

we're actually on semester here. but classes don't really work that way either, they're 5 weeks long and you take them one at a time.

first course i'll be taking is the orientation one that everyone takes when they start here :)

What are you planning on majoring in there? You've repeatedly talked about starting school, but never about what you're going to be taking! Sounds like things are really turning around for you. =)

naturally, i want to be in school absolutely as long as possible-

so first i'll be going for this:

I thought you wanted to get away from IT? Go with what you know! =)

IS is more development-centric; IT is playing with toys other people made, which i am indeed tired of. (we have programs for each, though.)

this company is pretty damned chill...

if//when I return I'll definitely be in touch to see if anything is open there. I would *love* to finish up school, not pay for it, get paid while doing it, and collect fed funding. That doesn't get any better. Thankfully I have all of my state tranfer requirements done and my AA. Well, I have to apply to graduate with my AA, but it's done and I don't really give a shit about an AA...

yay, baby! that's so awesome :) i'm glad they didn't try to fuck you out of the months you've already put in there.

i finally made it to CA ok - it was quite an adventure, but i made it safely. anyway, i'll email you tomorrow. sweet dreams
