    ASSEMBLEME: Testing, testing, 1, 2, 3.

    Yikes, it's been a while since I've updated. Things have been pretty hectic since arriving in the city. My first priority was getting some immediate income; so now I'm working as a contract DBA at a finance firm. It's pretty tight! I work with some great people (all non-techy accountants and admins) and they buy us lunch daily. It's not a career-job, it's just a job-job, so to work on a long range goal I'm doing a training course on C# (should be easy since I <3 Java) which will earn me a MCAD and/or MCSD, depending on what courses I take. Why more school when I just graduated? Well, I've noticed out here that .NET is everywhere, especially in big finance firms. And since my goal is to escape IT support and weasle my way in to IT development, I'm working on getting a few more acronyms added to my batbelt.

    My second priority was getting a living situation set up with my boyfriend and my good friend, Sam. Well, it was a hellish experience (wtf is UP with realestate nowadays!?!) and I can't wait for the bubble to burst, but it's done now -- we found a nice place in Astoria -- and I'm not moving for a long time.

    Oh yeah, in my .NET certification course, one of my classmates' name is Osama. Ha! Not a popular name in New York. My instructor just got it out in the open and asked him right away if he gets much gruff over his name. "NO! Well, yes! But I've always been Osama. I love my name," was his response -- he seems like a great guy.

    Good luck in the big city. I like the layout of your site. The lego blocks really bring it back for me. Keep posting!
