An entirely different world — Day 5

One week of training down, two weeks to go.  For now, it’s a day to rest and relax.

Friday morning … more lectures, more demos, more multi-tasking with my “Dummies bible.”

I did get my certificate for this introductory course in the morning as well.  That was a good thing.

More labs in the afternoon, one of them requiring that I at least make an attempt to do it.  I completed that one in good time, then went back and went through another one from earlier in the week that I didn’t get time to finish and knocked that out as well.

I’ve been getting up at 5:15 a.m. to get ready for my 7 a.m. classes.  On Friday morning, it seemed harder than previous mornings to wake up for some reason, unless it’s because of fighting yet ANOTHER bug (seems like I’ve been catching them all this season).  I gave myself 15 more minutes to stay in bed as a “reward.”

It’s felt good to work on educating myself again.  I’m always a fan of learning new things.  But it can be stressful, making the adjustment with my home life can make it edgy as well, and I am ready to take a few deep breaths.  That’s right, I’m ready to RRRRRRRRRRRRREEEEEEEEEELLLLAAAAX!

My Sabbath day couldn’t come at a better time.

About A View From The Middle (Class)

Hi, my name's John. I've thought about this blogging stuff for a number of years now. I got into it for real on November 10, 2011, after suddenly losing my job in late October. I've been blogging ever since, and I kept it up over a period of a year and four months of being unemployed or under-employed, to try and paint a picture of what being jobless with a family to support can be like. Finally, on February 28, 2013, I got a better job that puts us back into the "middle class." I won't stop blogging, though. Who knows, maybe I can actually turn this blogging stuff into a way to earn a living someday! If you go to my blog at and click on my About page, it'll tell you a lot about me -- maybe more than you ever wanted to know. I'm just your average, laid-back guy who's GOING TO MAKE IT IN THIS WORLD, despite all the roadblocks thrown in the way. I also launched a "niche" blog on music at that I'm very excited about because of the popularity of music playlist articles here. Also, check out and "Like" this blog's Facebook page at for instant updates. Look forward to seeing y'all around!
