It's About Time

My idea to expand Secretary4Life into a resource for dissatisfied secretaries just happens to coincide with me finally taking a step to get the hell out of this myself.  This week I start my Intro to IT class as part of a PC Specialist certificate program at my friendly local community college.  There are two things that I want out of a new career:

1) to use my brain
2) to not have to do people's trivial crap

Using my brain will definitely be achieved in this career path.  And while I know there are probably many IT guys who have been sent out to pick up their boss's lunch, it is certainly not a part of their job description.  They have a choice.  I want that choice, and I don't want to be embarrassed anymore when people ask me what I do, and in the spirit of Jimmy Fallon, I want to tell people to "Moooove!"

Before I started this program I took an Intro to Networking class from  They offer online classes for a reasonable price.  I've also taken some writing classes from them that I liked.  Check it out, it's a good first step:
