Well, we got back from Peru on Sunday (pictures forthcoming), and today was my last day at work with the Community Services Bureau of Contra Costa County.
I’ve never worked somewhere for so long - all in all, it was about three years, during which time I progressed from Temp Clerk to Intermediate Clerk to Assistant Manager. You do gotta love working in government.
In a way, I’ve been planning on quitting since about December of 2006, when I first applied to go back to school. Now that it’s a year and a half later, I’m surprised I’m not more excited or elated about this change. It’s possible it hasn’t sunk in yet because I have been on vacation for the past two weeks (and am used to not going to work), but ultimately, I feel pretty normal, which is odd.
Tomorrow is the first day of school at the Berkeley School of Information. I’ve got my classes all set up, and I’m shocked at exactly how awesome the classes are.
Here’s the official list as of now:
- Information Organization and Retrieval
- Distributing Computing Applications and Infrastructure
- Politics of Piracy
- Climate Change Impacts and Adaptation
- Computer Mediated Communication
- Photovoltaic Materials: Modern Technologies
- Metrics of Sustainability
A lot of classes, eh? It’s 20 units as of now, so I am definitely going to drop a number of them. It’s going to be hard to decide which to drop though. It’s a three-way split between classes offered through Haas school of business, the Energy and Resources Group and the iSchool. I guess we’ll see which float to the top.
I love getting feedback and comments. Make my day by making a comment.
