Where are you?

OK… so I haven’t kept up with things the way I’ve intended to but that’s due to the fact that lately I’m working six days a week and I’m just too tired to blog.  I have a lot of plans for this site, I just haven’t gotten around to doing them yet.  I haven’t read up on any new technology, I don’t have any ideas for new business techniques and I haven’t got the time to really sit down and write either.  I randomly jot a few ideas down but unfortunately that paperwork gets lost with the stacks of everything else that I’m working on. As far as the web hosting is concerned, I’ve completely handed that over to Sean (lepslair.com) so any questions you can take it up with him.  As far as my design business goes, I want…

Moving things around…

Sean and I are in the process of moving things around. Not only are we cleaning the heck out of the office but I was also able to locate a new hosting company and I’m going to slowly transfer everything over within the next couple of weeks. I’m getting a great deal on excellent resources and there’s literally no turning back at this point. I’ve filled out my FAFSA and I’m working on getting things together for admissions at the University of Phoenix Online. I’m going for my bachelors degree and I hope to be able to bring in enough money so I can afford to complete the degree. If I had no student-aid to back me up I’d have to shell out a little over $60,000 to complete the course. Since I don’t have that to just throw around…

Getting an IT Certification

Sean and I are both pretty interested in getting ourselves back into school. We both want to focus on the Computer Science aspect of things, but obviously we’d like to specialize in certain areas. He’s more into Programming so he’d look into a degree in that field specifically. I’d like to get one in the Web Design field. I know I’ve been involved in this field for 10 years but without a piece of paper showing my skills it’s hard to find a job down here. I’ve been considering certificate courses, while they aren’t a full-fledged degree – they do at least give me a piece of paper noting that I’ve dedicated the time and money in the attempt of getting a piece of paper proving what I’m capable of. That, I would hope, could get me in the door…

I need to get myself out of this hole…

I’ve found a few new programs that will hopefully help me out of my financial hole. I have no choice but to pay my loan back because it’s not only going to effect my credit if I miss a payment, but it’s going to effect my father’s as well since he co-signed for me. At the same time I can’t afford the monthly payments because of a major lack of income right now. I’m working on it to the best of my abilities but I don’t know how long that’s going to last without finally being accepted to any of the jobs I’ve applied to. I’m trying my hardest, but nothing seems to be working. I’ve downloaded a program that gives me all of the information I need to submit to different companies offering grants to small business owners and…
