The Beginning of the End

Today is the first day of my last quarter in school. I very likely won’t finish this quarter as an active, full-time student. I’ll hopefully be done with the welding portion around the beginning of March.

I have my Certifications course, which is all day M-F. I have my Fabrication Shop course evening two days a week. I also have two online course: Psychology 100 and Speech Communications 101, which are both a couple of hours a day, M-F (I need them for the degree).

And you thought I couldn’t blog any less.

I will seriously do my very best to get on here every day. But if I miss a day or two, don’t hate me because I’m beautiful(ly studious).

I’m going for three more Certifications this quarter: SMAW (Stick/Arc heavy plate), GMAW (MIG heavy plate), and Reinforcing Steel (MIG medium plate + rebar).

Oh, the adventures we’re going to have!

If I get all of those done and still have time, I’m going to practice for whatever job I’m interviewing for. Say, I want to work on in aluminum boat manufacturing. I’ll hop into the aluminum MIG booth and run some beads.

On a different note, I got “accepted” by an honor society affiliated with the school called Phi Theta Kappa. From their About page:

The purpose of Phi Theta Kappa shall be to recognize and encourage scholarship among two-year college students. To achieve this purpose, Phi Theta Kappa shall provide opportunity for the development of leadership and service, for an intellectual climate for exchange of ideas and ideals, for lively fellowship for scholars, and for stimulation of interest in continuing academic excellence.

Anyone heard of/about these guys? They want my money, which sets off my alarms, but the school really likes them and won’t leave me alone about joining.

    PTK is legit. It is the essentially the junior college version of the Phi Beta Kappa honor society. Congratulations!

    Cool…. Glad you are reaching the end of school. I wish you were closer when I had to weld up my 240Z after doing the fender flare work my welds look like a 2year old did them…

    What do you think of these welds????
