So now that school’s out for the summer, I’ll definitely try to add more variety of posts onto my blog, especially since I’ll have more free time to do some of my hobbies. I’ve already started reading the final book of The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer and I’ve started coding a new theme for the blog (I can’t for you guys to see it). I’ve also continued to study for the Network+ certification. It’s been really nice to do all of these things and not have to worry about coding for school or studying for finals. Also, since the weather is warm, I’ll be able to do more outdoorsy things like kayaking and hiking with my family. I think it’s going to be an awesome summer. ?
Is it allergies or…?
If you follow me on twitter, you’ve probably seen me complain about a sore throat and allergies and such. I’ve also had to deal with a stuffy/runny nose, and an occasional cough. I had some green tea this morning and it was super helpful. I only wish I could have it in an I.V. or a patch.
My step-mom seems to think it’s allergies but my symptoms haven’t been responding to allergy medicine so I’m starting to wonder if its a head cold or something. Either way, I want to feel better again so I can enjoy myself.
Starting my Summer job
I was very fortunate to find a summer job a couple days after I got home. I went to interview with one of the managers at a local restaurant and it went so well that he hired me on the spot! I was so happy because I was stressing about it as the semester came to an end I wanted to have some way of making some money for this summer.
Anyway, I’ll be starting my training tonight as a hostess and then I’ll eventually learn the tasks of a waitress with the goal of me being able to do both jobs. The pay should be good and the manager was super nice about meeting my requests for days off (especially with my birthday coming up in a week and a half).
There’s still hope
As I drove toward home last Friday, I got an unexpected call from a lady who works with the county that my hometown is in. She called to request an interview for an I.T. internship that would involve helping to install new things in county office buildings. I was shocked because I had applied to it as a last ditch effort and I had given up on finding an internship.
Anyway, when I got the details, I found out that I’ll be doing a regular (not technical thank goodness ?) interview with a Network Administrator next Tuesday. When I found out my interviewer’s job title I freaked out because (as you read above) I’m studying networks as part of training for the Network+ certification exam and if I get the position, I’ll have a chance for some hands on learning. Plus the position would be part time so I still be able to work at the restaurant and make extra money.
I’m trying not to get my hopes up but it would make my year to be able to obtain a position like that.
Anyway, that’s all the news I have f0r now. I’ll be posting again soon!
