Meeting New People

So my word of the year has been “New.”  I’ve been trying to right about different things, like my job search and the new things I’ve been learning.  I’ve not done a fantastic job at it, but I’m trying.

So tonight, I had a new experience.  Dale took me to a meeting of ISC2.  I met new people and tried to follow along with the speaker.  Quite honestly, I followed about half of the speaker.  But considering that I wouldn’t have followed any of it in November, that’s saying a lot!

I tried my hand at networking with people, but most of them were looking for upper or mid management levels.  I’m only entry level.

As I told Dale, one thing I took away from tonight was that while I understand that I need to be aware of the different safety and security issues and follow the advice given to me by whatever IT team I will be working with, but I don’t think I want to go into the security field.  So, I’m probably going to be taking Security + off of my list of certifications I want to take.

These are all so new thoughts, that my head hurts.  I’ve always heard that to stay young at heart, you need to learn new things.  I can literally feel the new neurons forming in my brain.

But now, it is time to rest those little grey cells.  (Bonus points if you know the reference.)  Here’s to learning more and more new things every day!


P.S.  If you follow me on Twitter or Facebook, please know that I am trying to write frequently, but I am also trying to keep my super secret project under wraps, so I don’t link to them right now.
