Got a new job near the end of October working as an advisor for career/technical degrees at a two year college. It's a nice change of pace from the old job which was becoming insufferable in that last year with lots of arguments with my boss about the ethics of certain situations and managing tons of people without getting recognized or paid as a supervisor.

Thatís great news, Sam!

Sandy, the property I was working on got sold and the new church tore all the gardens up, including all the fruit and memorial trees we planted.

Iím sad about their decision to do so. It was a wonderful use of the space and provided a sense of accomplishment for those who worked in the gardens, let alone good nutrition!

Keep us posted on your new projects, please.

Well, I resigned from the job above and have my exit interview tomorrow for a plethora of reasons I'd rather not get into.

As for the future, I'm studying for the COMPTIA A+ Certification and am looking into other certs to pick up in the future as I've always liked working with computers and I think it's time for a career change where I can actually make a decent living.

Feel pretty good about this change. The job felt like a final sign that education is not the place for me right now. Maybe down the line I could land a gig teaching, but right now I'm ready for something new.

Sounds like a positive move then, Sam.
