Graduation

The first class that I taught is graduating tonight. They asked me to be the guest speaker. I wrote my speech yesterday morning while I was being good and staying off the modem all morning. I woke up a little late this morning and decided a few extra minutes wouldn't hurt that bad. Not like the phone is ringing off the hook for people looking to hire me.

I'm going to be a little sad to see these guys leave. I think we all learned a lot in those six weeks. They learned all kinds of cool computer things that I taught them. I learned that I could actually do the job and just needed to find my "groove" with each class. I learned that they are probably more dedicated than I am, since most of them work full time then come to school each night for five hours. THAT is dedication. I honestly don't know if I could do that. I don't know that I could dedicate that amount of time, five days a week to learning. My hat definitely goes off to them.
