i am not, however, going to try to handle 13 credits and a full-time job concurrently again, so i think i'm gonna limit myself to two "head" classes and a one-credit class of strength development (weightlifting; $9/quarter is a damned sight less than a health club around here).
i know i'm going to use one class to work towards a BS in computer science and let myself enjoy the other; i doubt they've expanded their economics curriculum since i was there last, and before i left de anza the first time i took all the econ courses there were to take, so it'll either come down to their electronic music class (which i've heard is so-so) or keep going further along the psychology track i got started previously.
i found a job on dice last night that pretty closely mirrors what i'm doing at mercanti, except there isn't an e-commerce/web app involved (which means it would be easier). salary range for the job approaches double what i was making here, *before* we got pay cuts. i just *barely* meet the qualifications they outlined, but what the hell... won't kill me to type up and send off a resume, i suppose. the worst they can do is get me into the office and then laugh their heads off because i'm 23 and applying for a Director of IT position... but hell. i've got a pair. isn't it about time i used them? ;)
&& lastly, this post ends with a *sigh* i can't explain.
