What I’m learning

Other than working on my degree, I am also learning a few technical subjects. I’m learning technical writing, a subject that I’ve always been interested in and will be relevant to my current position. I will also be taking a certificate course in MSSQL. Very excited about that. I’ve always wanted to expand and improve on my database skills and I can’t wait to get my hands dirty!

Back to school

Yes. It’s that time of year again. It also means that we will have to purchase textbooks with ridiculously inflated prices. I personally am giving one of my books away for free. After all, students don’t really have a great deal of money—a fact completely lost on textbook companies. Even the rentals are becoming ridiculously expensive. I have created an account with an eBook/audio book company called scribd. I will give my full review once the semester is finished, but I can say that I was successfully able to get one of my textbooks from this site. As I also love audio books, I will look into this aspect too.
