In the larger picture, I'm wanting to improve my reading intake in both quality and quantity. That includes spending more time with the Bible; I've promised myself that this year (5776) I'm going to keep up with the weekly Torah readings and study them in depth. I found a site (TorahDownloads.com) that lets you download audio files for every one of the readings, so that I can now listen to the reading on my phone. Neat!
It looks like the admin job at the art school isn't going to happen after all. That's actually OK, as I really need to focus on building my career as a tech. I've taken a job for this Sunday doing cash registers at a local retail store.
Two of my concrete goals for '76 are (1) to get my Network+ certification, and (2) to get my General-class amateur radio license. And now I'm adding one more: (3) to get EMT certified. It's something I've wanted to learn for some time, it'll give me more employment options, and even if I don't end up doing it for a paycheck it will be good to have the knowledge in case I need it.
So there's a school in California that offers a two-week "boot camp" for EMT certification, and it looks really good. I could also go through community college which takes six months, but my experience is that I tend to perform better in short, focused, intensive training programs; in a long, drawn-out program I'd probably lose momentum.
