Even though SBC will no longer be funding my ongoing education, I've been able to gather enough assistance to fund a full load of classes this semester. In Total, I'll be taking a full 18 hours of classes this semester, though never more than 3 at the same time. This should put me on track to finish the MCSE certification path by this time next year. Following that, I can continue towards my associate's degree by adding some additional gen ed and entry level computer classes.
I started my first class yesterday, which is a condensed, 3 week version of an Intro to Computers class. Shouldn't be too difficult, but it does look like there will be a lot of work involved. Wish me luck!
