Wow! I can’t believe I have been in school for a month already. Time slips through your fingers. I have been busy working on perfecting this blog and re-opening Etsy shop. The ideas are just flooding my head. I need to get them into the physical world. So far I love online schooling. I am only in the introduction course but because it is more independent learning I have a lot of time to do other things. Currently, I don’t feel overwhelmed with the school work and deadlines.
I noticed a lot of my classmates are also in the tech industry. I haven’t seen anyone else going for the exact degree that I am but still the same industry.This made me excited to see that because I already have things in common when it came time to reply to others discussion post. I didn’t stop myself from introducing myself even though All ones that are in the tech industry are men. The thing is I never got a reply nor did any reply to my post. I know it may sound petty, but I felt a bit offended. I am around many geek men, heck I have friends that are geeks and nerds. My husband plays magic on the weekends at the shop and he is in school for IT.
For those of you who don’t understand, In this area, women get challenged. Geek/nerd is a whole new category of men. They are the know it alls. Some are not so friendly. I was hoping that because we are all after the same goals it would be different. I know this will be a constant challenge until more woman joins this industry. Right now with a quick search on google, 20-30% of the tech industry are women(yes not much at all!). As technology continues to grow I hope more woman consider this as a profession.
I don’t have much more to say about school this far. When this term is over I will be jumping into English. I don’t get into my IT classes until early next year. I am already prepared for coding. I am a HUGE fan of Cyber Power PC Products
No, I don’t get paid if you click that link and purchase something. They can be expensive, but so far we LOVE their products. Build your own computer? Yes, please. I recently purchased a laptop from them worth the money!. I also purchased a mac book pro a few years ago and I love my mac, but this laptop is more powerful than the Mac and it was cheaper. I am excited to use this for programming.
