Possible Service Interruption

Starting tomorrow, I will begin classes at the University of Texas-Pan American. I have been out of school for the last 3 years, which will make going back a bit of a challenge. Especially with a morning Stats II class. I hardly remember Stats I. Consequently, my ability to keep up with what is going on in the Rio Grande Valley may suffer. I probably will not write long opinions as frequently. I will, however, write short opinions. I don't think I will be able to stay away from blogging. Blogging is like being a crack addict. I've spent many late nights getting my fix. I'll sneak a post here and there in free moments. My name is Shaine Mata, I am a blogaholic.

After being really dissatisfied with my work situation and having limited options without a degree, I decided that going back to school is the only way to achieve the things I want. I am a business student, which means that I'm considered a professional nobody in the job market. In the Rio Grande Valley, everybody wants to pay you minimum wage. The implication of getting paid the minimum is that your employer is telling you that they would gladly pay you less if they could. Of course, I earn more than minimum and certainly more than what my position merits. I want out of my current job, but I'd be going from one unchallenging job to another for probably less pay. One option that keeps cropping up is doing handywork. I am often asked if I can do this or that job for somebody. I may decide to work on my own in the end. In the meantime, it's off to school I go tomorrow morning. I've got plenty of hard work coming my way in the coming two years.

As for the blogging, worst case scenario would be that I audioblog my entries rather than wait for internet access. That's not so bad, is it?
