This past week found me in a funk.  I get that way sometimes, and it’s okay.  I let myself go through it because I know that I’ll come out strong on the other end – and I have.  I think the “down-time” was because I’ve lost focus, or at least I’ve been distracted by things that shouldn’t be holding my focus.

Yes, I’m being vague, and no I’m not going to clarify completely haha.

In any case, I’ve taken control again and am reinvigorating different goals that I’ve had recently.  The fitness stuff has been going great, though the past couple of days I haven’t been eating as well as I should be.  Other than that, I feel great and am looking forward to toning things up a bit more in my chest and abs.  I’m just going to keep doing what I’m doing there.

One of my goals has been career based – I want to get my CCNA.  I’ve been slowly reading through the new ICND1 and ICND2 books, but I need to start focusing more.  I want to set up a plan, set a date, and track it on this website.  The CCNA is just a starting place for me though, but a great one that will give me a bonus in my one job and a pay increase in my teaching position – all in all, a great decision!

Also, I want to work toward some Microsoft Certifications eventually.  One thing I’d like to start doing is going through Microsoft’s free online training from Virtual Academy.  If you haven’t checked it out before, you should!  In any case, I’m going to do that along side my CCNA studying.  My thought is a chapter a night for CCNA, and one or two courses per night for the Virtual Academy.

All in all, I think this will help me get excited about my career again.  I think I’ve been feeling… not bored so much as stagnant.  I have a great job, and a secure one at that, but I’ve always told myself that I would keep learning at all times, so that’s what I intend to do.
