Stories of a Tech Guy

Introduction about myself
I see that TFF now features blogs, I suppose that is more convenient in comparison to making a journal entry in the journal thread. Anyways, for those who don't know me, I'm Sabin, tech guy in training. I attended a Computer Systems Technology class in pursuit of a future job in the field of computers. I'm currently in my 2nd year and this year has been proving to be more challenging than the previous but challenges can be overcome if we are persistent.

Other things I will share about myself: I view things in perspective (out of the box thinking), huge gamer, love to work out, enjoy swimming, enjoys certain movies and shows, and pursues a personal relationship with God (which isn't religion which is completely different). I have good computer experience since being in tech school, i'm your man if you have question about japanese to english translated games (PM/VM me for those). I also get along with my family, that's about it really, oh I occasionally write a series of stories in a story known as 'A Pointless Story', check it in the Literature forum!

The actual entry itself
This week has been a crazy week for me, dealing with a lot of stress due to both personal situations and my trying to understand the Cisco hands-on labs and facts from the book. Other than that, things are ok in general. I've also been promoted to administrator of my school's domain. #exec powers

Had my birthday a few weeks back and got some games and gift cards. The games were Kirby Returns to Dreamland, Kingdom Hearts: Dream Drop Distance for console and handheld systems. From steam: Awesomenauts, Cave Story+, Terraria, and Bastion.

I bought some stuff with my gift cards such as Volume 1 of Detective Conan/Case Closed and Ys: Ark of Napishtim. I also went and bought even more games with some cash: Metroid Prime 3: Corruption, Animal Crossing: City Folk, and Metal Gear Solid 3: Subsistence. (I think i'm all set game wise). I'm currently playing Kirby, KH, and Animal Crossing for my recent titles. Animal Crossing is perfect for a casual game after a stressful day, try it, it works.

So the last thing I have to write about is that I'm making plans for my latest chapter in A Pointless Story. I have a few chapter ideas and you guys get a nice chance to vote on the 3 titles I have in mind. The winning chapter title vote will be the chapter I will write about. Here are the choices: A. Paramounts of a Blue Mongoose, B. Chronicles of ADHD, and C. Attack Crabs of the Vertigo Syndrome.

Hope you have enjoyed my first blog, and happy voting to those voting for my next chapter title entry.

    I recently completed my Cisco certification, those labs use packet tracer , right? Pain in the ass, I feel you. Just try and understand the structure of the network the way it makes sense to you and you should do fine.
