It looks like I'm going to be going back to college to get an A+ Certificate. I can only go part time, because I'm

's live-in caregiver/love slave, so it'll take two years instead of one, but it has the added bonus of not having a bunch of superfluous requirements, so no gen ed. That's a huge blessing for me, because the one thing I couldn't stand about taking classes before is the amount of seemingly unrelated classes you take as opposed to ones directly related to your field of interest.

I know, I know: knowledge in unrelated fields is transferable in novel and non-obvious ways, but try telling my spazzy brain that. Also, if you could slap my brain in its bitch face while you're telling him that I would be most appreciative. :D

ANYWHOOZ, this is great for me. Why, nobody asks? Well, it means that I'm finally getting smart about my future and not falling back on tired idealism that revolves around how I think things should be and not how things are. I still want to do art, but I need some sort of skillz that pay the billz in the interim. YAY SMART GOOB! :B


On an unrelated note, I went to the doctor recently because of a sharp pain in my right shin that didn't have an obvious reason to be there. They took some Xrays of that and my knee and found what they think is a healed non-ossifying fibroma, so I'm being recommended to a orthopedician to see if anything needs to be done about it. Survey likely says no, since it's only flared up once, and it's probably not big enough to warrant excision.

Funny story, what I heard the first time they told me was "something something sarcoma." My face was like dis: ヽ(゚Д゚)ノ

How useful is an A+ these days?

After I got mine, it turned out it... wasn't very useful, but that was years ago, so.

I'm actually not sure. Thanks for asking, as I'm very prone to just run with things without looking into them. :x

Probably best to do some research, see how it can improve your prospects, if it's the best use of time and money, stuff like that~

After all, education is important, getting good education doubly so!

Many government contractors require A+.  It's one of the certs that qualify for DoD 8570 Technical Level 1.

I hope me saying this isn't going to rain on your parade, but it shouldn't take a whole year to get an A+ cert, even part time. At most it should take is 6 months, I was in school with a compressed course of 25 hours a week and got it done in 3 months. Now this was 10 years ago (I'm so old) so maybe things have changed, but it seemed like a bunch of memorization, to be honest. I hope they made the test shorter because it seemed like a long quiz when I took it. Also, I hope everything turns out okay with your knee. If not, at least you can joke about taking an arrow to the knee or something. =p

I'm glad to hear you and Sam are close. =) I hope we can all chat a bit more when it's possible. [hugs]

*giggles* Yeah. To be fair, I think it's going to be A+ and some other IT stuff. I'll have to look at it again, but it seemed like more than just test prep stoof.

And we can chat whenever hon. You know where to find me. :3

I just hope things work out better for you than they did for me. I never found a job in my field. I paid $20k for a piece of paper with a bit of writing on it, and 12 years later I'm still paying on my student loan & going in to bankruptcy. =/ I just don't want you to find yourself in the same spot I am in 10 years. [hugs]

*hugs* Well, look at it this way: I'm already 16k in the hole with nothing to show for it. If I can get a piece of paper that has the potential of landing me a better than minimum wage job, I'll be able to pay the whole thing back faster. If not...what's another grand? :P

Fair enough. [hugs tight] Best of luck to you. =3
