Catastrophe Rising

"I'll carry your world"

Cassidy Currently: 2nd Edition

So I just got back from eating dinner with some of my extended family. It was our last get-together before my cousins, my brother, and I will start back at school or life, etc. It’s something we try to do every year and I’m glad I was able to do it this year.

 

Speaking of school, I’ve decided to go back Wednesday instead of Sunday. When I emailed my bosses to touch base with them, they said they had plenty of work. So I’ll go back to my college town Wednesday, and work until classes start on the 29th. I’m glad that I’ll be able to get the extra work, especially since classes aren’t in session. So I plan to take full advantage of my time.

 

I’m really excited to go back though. I’m excited to be a more productive human being again and actually do useful things and learn more about computers and things. It’ll be great.

 

I did find out that one of classes (Web Programming 1) has more males than females. The class isn’t very big, of course, but it does prove the point that the I.T. field is more male dominated (at least in the U.S.). Oh well, I think I’ll be OK because we’ll be starting with the basics of HTML (which I already know) and that will (hopefully) be my chance to stand out a little bit. 😉

 

Besides the family dinner, today was also nice because we got to hang with some of members of my step-brother’s family.We were able to hang out at the mall and do a little window shopping and drink milkshakes, etc. It was great to get out and see them one last time before I leave.

 

Tomorrow will be interesting. I have a lot of packing I need to do. Nothing major, since a lot of my stuff is already at my apartment in my college town. So it’ll be mostly clothes, odds and ends, and a nightstand to replace my current one (a plastic storage box).

 

Anyway, I promise my life will get more exciting once I bet back to school. TTFN.

  1. Good luck with your classes. I too, am going back but on the 29th. Good luck on back to school! Sounds like a nice evening with dinner and everything and it’s a good tradition, too.

  2. I would consider myself an advocate for women in IT – I mean, it is a highly male-dominant field, but don’t be afraid to assert your knowledge and skills. Many women, unfortunately, shy away from working in IT because they get told that it’s a male thing to do, or they get bullied about it. I could go on for days about this, but don’t let it happen to you. Don’t let it faze you, especially if you really like what you are learning. Girls are often better at IT anyway. I had a lot of chances in school and university to show off. I encourage you to do it. 😉

    Good luck getting back into the swing of things! I love that you are keen to be productive again 😄

  3. That’s great that you are looking forward to starting a new semester. I hope it goes well for you. LOL about the I.T. field being full of dudes. Tell me about it. In most of my classes I was usually the only girl, it was rare if there was more than me. Heck, even as my job – I’m the only girl Tech. It’s all good though. I’m sure you will have fun in that class. 🙂

  4. I’m so glad you had a catch up and meeting with your extended family. 🙂 Hope you can do it every year!

    That’s great that you get to be working for a bit before you study – I always work towards doing that every summer before semester starts – work lots and be productive then study my butt off all year! xD

    That sounds like such an interesting class – as a student ambassador for a coding course for girls at my university, I always encourage coding and web dev and the usual “boy-stuff” to girls and it’s made me feel like I’ve inspired some people even if it’s just a little a bit. 😀
