I’ve now been in Atlanta since Monday for a Microsoft Certification Bootcamp to get a certification to help please my company. I’m going to continue to be here until Monday, and even though the company put us up in some nice accommodations, I’m still missing home a lot.
The only thing that’s helping is that we are constantly busy, even after class as we need most of the night to continue to study to get ready for the tests we are taking for the certifications. The only real break has generally been dinner.
One cool thing has been the ability to use iChat to video chat back home with Maggie and Brenden. Although it’s been confusing Brenden that he can hear me and see me, but that I’m not there. He keeps grabbing the phone in the office like he wants to talk to me that way.
I’ll be happy when I get to come back home and see my family. Not to mention sleeping in my own bed. For one of the first times in my life, I’m having a hard time falling to sleep. I’m chalking that up to having so many things I’m trying to store in my head combined with being in unfamiliar surroundings.
