I was very confused on what to do for college. Honestly I already have a job position with the family business and what not. I told my self when I was younger I would never ever work for my family business, but now I’ve decided to go back on my word. Not because I want to. I know this economy is rough to deal with, and because I know its the right thing to do. The business has grown and we don’t have the people reliable to help us out. That is where I come in. And I’m actually very happy with that. Like right now the router in the shop is running a lot of error protocols and can’t connect to the internet. It doesn’t even show up on the networking protocol analyzer. If I had the knowledge to fix it, I would have already. Instead we have to rely on people that are not reliable what so ever. Also the website is way below our potential. Blah, Sorry for the rant.
I was first going to college for graphic art and design. No real degree or anything, just certificates from adobe and what not. But now I’m going to get my CCNA, this is something I’ve wanted to do since I was very young (weird I know). What is CCNA? It is Cisco Verified Network Associate. But it doesn’t just stop there with Cisco, that is the most basic certificate you can get The reason why I never tried getting it before is because I was scared of what others would think, its a pretty nerdy thing to do. And not a lot of women are in it (or at least use to be). My uncle use to work for Cisco, and actually invented a radio type thing for them. But he pissed off one of the head honchos in corporate, because my uncle disagreed on his political views or whatever. He has everything I need to work on for hands on experience, so I think this will give me a slight of hand. I’ve already worked on the router here so I at least have a basic know how.
I also would like to get my Ham-radio license. Really just so I can join the emergency response team and weather watchers. So I’ll have something to do with my dad. Plus its good thing to have just in case of a disaster or whatever. I have all the equipment and knowledge on how it works, so I find it kinda stupid I haven’t gotten it out of the way.
For now this is what I’m going with. It’ll probably change, but whatever. :P
