Check-in in November 2017

It has been a long while since I’ve last made an update to the site… Many things have happened since last spoke about the important of keep your skills current.

With the support of my wife, I decided to go back and finish off my degree in Information systems. Since I am time and financially restricted to take one class at a time, I’m looking at a long haul before I finally finish my degree. The upside to this is that I’m able to focus whatever class I take with a project I’m working on, and that adds value to my skill set.

I also decided to focus on completing my ICND1 certification.. I have the class under my belt, and now its just a matter of studying every waking moment until I’m confident enough to pass the test. My college semester finishes this week, so I can then spend time focusing on these studies before the next semester begins.

Health wise, I’ve recently started a Ketogenic diet.  Its a very low carb diet that mods you body into using Ketones rather than glucose.  So far, I’ve lost about 12 lbs in a month.  It will be a long while before I undue the damage of 40 years of improper eating, but the results are good so far.
