Catch-Up…


Dad & Kikee

My apologies, I have been remiss in my blogging as of late. Life has gotten very busy.

Since my last post I was able to pass Integrated Physical Science without any problem. However since then, life has kinda taken over and I need to get back to my studies.

I started a new job the beginning of November and it got to be very busy at the beginning of December, which is the majority of the reason I haven’t posted lately. As I have been productively engaged in learning the ropes at the new job.

Then, in the middle of January, my wife and I took a trip to Thailand. We met up with my father, and his fiancee, and spent the majority of the ten day we were there with them. It was a very enjoyable trip.

On top of all that, we had some drama at home in regards to my step-son, who decided that he wanted to go live with his father while we were in Thailand. We came home from out trip to one less person in the house, as he convinced his father to come get him while we were out of the country.

This caused quite a bit of (understandable) drama in the house.

I think we have finally recovered from all of that.

I got an email from my mentor last week, detailing some changes to the program. They are trading out the science lab for a politics course, trading out one of the math classes for an ethics course, and changing the other math class for a different math class

Since math is my kryptonite I am happy to trade out one of them for an ethics class. I enjoy politics, so that change is also positive in my own opinion.

So for the time being I need to focus on the ITIL course and get it completed.

I’ve worked around ITIL for a number of years, but I’ve never been directly involved with it. So while I am recognizing some of it, it’s the first time I’ve actually gone over it.

I have 14 weeks to pass the ITIL course, and I really don’t think I need that much time. However that does require me to get off my ass and start getting things done.

My goal for this week is to complete the Lynda (LinkedIn Learning) course on ITIL. I am hopeful that this will give me a head start on the rest of what I need to learn from the course. I learn pretty well from videos, and I have done quite of a bit of learning from Lynda in the past.

I used Lynda to learn several Adobe products, including Premiere, Speedgrade, and InDesign.
