I did get it. Iâll be starting on the 29th. That means I really donât get any time off after schoolâs done for the summer, but it does mean Iâll have at least one quarter of co-op, if not two (my employer an I both hope it works out for two quarters) under my belt before starting back up with the academics. I kinda like the academics though, so I hope the âjob stuffâ turns out to be fun. (If I really hate it Iâll be in more trouble, but I doubt that.) So anyone who was planning on me, being a student, having lots of free time this summer will be disappointed, but if you were hoping Iâd have money, then you wonât be. Iâm usually broke because I donât work, now Iâll be busy and uninteresting, but Iâll have money. Hopefully a regular daily schedule will put some good habits in place for the future, you might even see more postings here of a reasonably technical nature, as Iâll start wanting to âmake my markâ in the larger technological field, so to speak. This blog seems to get enough traffic (somehow) that people who Google for specific things addressed in my posts will find it. (As long as itâs obscure enough that Iâm not drowned out in the noise of everyone else talking about it.) Iâve never been this busy in my life. I think Iâm starting to feel the push a bit more than Iâm comfortable with, as far as homework and projects and everything else is concerned, so a steady workaday thing will be a (somewhat) welcome change. In any case, my parents are thrilled as hell that Iâve got a job (yeah, uncool to mention my parents and how Iâm so totally dependant on them, pshaw) an all though. Itâs almost like they expected me to avoid it because Iâm not thrilled about the idea of trading time for money. Itâs not a good long-term exchange, but, to a degree, Iâm trading my time for experience and money, which is quite good for me. Experience will give me options, if nothing else. And options are good.
