Got my CCNA September 24, 2008

After over 3 months of talkin about it, I finally went and took the CCNA test.  That test has evolved since I last took it 6 years ago.  Back then it was 98% multiple choice.  Now 50% is multiple choice and the other 50 is lab and simulation.

Basically times have changed where back in 2002 it was for anyone needing leverage to get in the I/T field and now its designed for engineers already in the field for at least a couple years.  Reason I say that is back in 2002 I literally memorized all 250 possible questions.  Now after being in the field for a number of years, I studied actively for 3 weeks and that test kicked my ass.  There is no way anyone can memorize that test.  Well now I can say Cisco Certified engineers are definately semi legit.

Now I can proceed with getting a new job.  I noticed without a certification, jobs I qualified for, where lowering paying than  I cared for.

Next step is the CCNP!  I should be finished with that by early November at the latest.

Birthday Bash 2008 July 29, 2008

That time of the year again and I decided to do thangs a little different.  Instead of holding an event at a local hotspot with a bunch of strangers, I will throw a party and invite everybody I know.

After throwing this party I will not be throwing anymore parties.  Although the party was alright (front desk reported I had 108 people attend) I was tired before the party got started.  But the party was cool and even ended up alright, but not in the way I expected or would have thought of.  This is when E-Rocka came in the picture.

Honestly if it weren’t for Dat Gurl the Birthday Bash would have been a disaster.  So shots out to her!

For some reason today while at work I thought about this old and rather out-dated blog and realized I haven’t updated it in quite some time.  Boy alot has happened over the past couple years.

During my time away I did manage to make some posts but never published them.  During the time I take to re-aquaint myself with how I set this up I will publish them if need be.

Gotta repair my garbage disposal May 1, 2007

A few weeks ago my garbage disposal broke. Go figure when your place is for sale. Well today I figure I will step up to the challenge. So I just returned from getting my cheap $70 disposal and am just sitting here dying to get started, but waiting for this young lady to hang herself on all the rope I’ve been giving her for the last 4 months. Just a couple hours left for that.

Back on topic, I will post a follow up when I am done, should take me a couple hours.

I never knew getting a raise was so hard. April 22, 2007

But working for a contracting agency can really make it difficult. I’m not sure how as a couple of my peers got raises with no problems, so they say. Well until they break me off with some more green, I am going to reduce my responsibilities. I just hope this does not bite me in the rear. More to come!

Gliding at the rink March 20, 2007

Ok, lately I have getting my glide on at the skating rink, tagging along with this lady, which I will name her by her moniker Marilie, by referral of creditboards. Its been quite a number of years since I have actually roller skated as I am a rollerblader. She thinks otherwise. Cool, everyone has their opinion. *shrugs*

Man, was getting around that rink painful. If I may add embarrassing to boot. But sexy mama kept my spirit up and made me feel comfortable out there. Sad I can’t actually make a move on her as not many women can keep me motivated (not that motivation) like that.  I work the 3rd shift and realized last year that its HARD to maintain something special working the “owl shift.” Even still if anything I have a skate partner when I get good enough to her level to actually ask to skate with her.

Rare thing I find a show on TV I watch March 7, 2007

Anyone that knows me fairly well knows I do not watch much TV.  If any at all.  Recently I found a series on CBS called Jericho.  The storyline revolves around a small ficticious town in Kansas, called Jericho where majority of the US is nuked very badly.

I found the series interesting as the writers really keep the series as mysterious as possible.  I look forward to seeing how this plot unfolds.
