Driving at night

I still can't take a car by myself, but today was another step forward, as I … Continue reading Driving at night

Driving Lessons- Day 6

As promised earlier today, I want to tell you about my sixth driving class, which took place this morning.  This class began from the moment the instructor picked me up as he let me take the wheel immediately. This was very exiting for me, although I had been waiting for this since he told me … Continue reading Driving Lessons- Day 6

There I was again, sitting in a car with a bumper sticker that said student driver but it was my first real attempt to … Continue reading Driving lessons- Day 1

My first driving lesson after officially being seizure free for two years

Tonight, at my third driving lesson in my building's parking lot and my first time behind the wheel as a two year seizure free woman I felt more in control and sure of myself.  Did I mention I have been seizure free for two years? Maybe I just feel safer because of how happy I … Continue reading My first driving lesson after officially being seizure free for two years

Coding

Yesterday I started learning how to code, in codeacademy.com. It's free and with all the free time I have, you know not having a job or anything, I can dedicate some time to learning something that is very useful right now, especially if I ever plan of hosting this blog anywhere besides WordPress. Knowing how … Continue reading Coding

Driving 101

A few hours ago I took my first "driving lesson" since my neurologist told me I could drive. I say "driving lesson" because I just took to the wheel when the car was in the building's parking lot and drove it down to the indoor parking. I sat down, moved the seat a little bit … Continue reading Driving 101

As I keep looking for jobs, I keep seeing that there are a lot of positions available in marketing, Graphic Design, Business Administration, Programing and Web Development.

Putting together a multimedia story

Today I spent a little more than 3 hour working and freezing in a very crowded Starbucks. It looked more like a school library or study room than a coffee shop. Every group had at least one computer for the whole group, at most one per person, like us. When my whole group was there, all … Continue reading Putting together a multimedia story

My group for the final project and I have been able to start communicating, and have been able to start working as a group since I was clear when I told them I didn't like that they were making decisions without me. Today we worked on our first interview, which went great; we got a … Continue reading 1 interview down

Here we go again

I have about two weeks left of class and as I'm working on the final project, I have also been looking for another job. I already started the job search this week, but that plus working on my final project gets a little difficult. It's hard just looking for places to send my resume, especially … Continue reading Here we go again

We need to work together, whether we like it or not

First, I've had about all I can take in politics, that's enough for now. I was ready to relax, meaning get to work on my final project. I was happy because we were assigned a group project and three heads are better that one, except when the two other heads leave your head out. My … Continue reading We need to work together, whether we like it or not
