Some training

Tomorrow, as a requirement for continued employment, I will be going to CPR and First Aid training. I'll be out during business hours. My wife is already certified from her work back in the RGV, so she will stay home with the boy. I am also studying the manual to get a CDL for bus driving. Once I acquire the license, I will get reimbursed for the cost. In addition, it means more hours for me and a pay raise. There is a good chance that I could start training for an associate's in child development (CDA). I don't want to press the issue on the CDA because it requires a 3 year commitment to the program. I hope it slips through the cracks. I don't really look forward to coming up north again. It's nice and all, but I'd rather come on vacation than to work.
Besides, with the recent heartache from separating from my daughter, I have a renewed sense of urgency to finish my degree and move on with life. I don't expect to get a job in my field of study, Finance. Whether it be a banker, stock broker, or financial advisor, they're all sales jobs. They have very little to do with finance. If you go to any of these for advice, watch out. Commissions are their motivation, not your best interest. In any case, I am renewing my focus on getting out of UTPA.
