Back to College

Fresno City College Spring Semester 2020

New semester begins.

Fresno City College 1910

I am once again a student at college. This time at Fresno City College. A very diverse campus, part of a larger district, and welcomes about 100% of the applicants who apply.

I am feeling many things, such as anxious, nervous, and some excitement.

I am currently registered for two classes and waitlisted for one.

I am also going to ask about potential work opportunities.

More updates to follow.

Final Frontier

Space is our future. It always has been. Always will be. No space is larger than space! Sure, we could explore our oceans, but that is finite, limited to the space in the ocean deep. It is far and vast, but we will eventually explore all of it.

Venture far and away and explore infinite that is outer space. Maybe there is an end to our universe, but as of now, that remains unknown. Journeys of fantasy through our minds and our knowledge. The truth of reality is worth spending some time discovering.

For our tomorrow to happen, we must follow the fiction that could uncover the facts. Be willing to open your mind!

Thanksgiving 2018

Another festive holiday season is upon us and I really do not care. As a non-religious, lonely, single, white male, this time of the year is always depressing. I would like a girlfriend, but I fear the commitment, no lie. I am not right in the mind or the gut and I want everyone to know that. I am also seriously depressed and broken, but not without some redeeming value. Just get to know me.

Depression is not contagious and talking can be helpful and beneficial. Please do not be offended by any comments that could be made. Opinions are welcomed, encouraged, and potentially useful. Be kind and be honest.

I can say much, but I prefer to talk rather than write. My writing is stilted and I am never sure what to type, but speaking, I am less certain of my abilities. Words often fail me. Life often fails me. Like I said, I am depressed and I do not have a solution.

Class Continues

Classwork

I am typing this whilst awaiting the start of class day 8 of 12 and I know that I have learned a lot that I did not know before, but I also realize just how immersive this world of web development really is, or at least, I think I do. Maybe not yet. Perhaps not fully aware. But, I have half-a-mind to think logically for myself and to consider to potentials.

As a class, we have crafted a series of pages and, using CSS and HTML5, have learned how to make said pages look good. Where to place certain content, proper use of white space, and various other factors that I could, perhaps should, go into here, but I will not at this time. Suffice it to say, I am feeling over-whelmed at times. Is that a good thing?

Once I complete this first class in about two weeks, I may post what we created, my version of it. Be sure to bookmark this site, stay informed.

Take Back California plan

The TBC event in Sacramento was a great success and the paddlewheel room was nearly filled to capacity. I was the only person to come from the Fresno/Merced counties and that made it interesting. Love riding the train from Merced and the return home was longer than the trip North. Not sure why, though I suspect there was additional freight traffic on the rails at the later hour. These pictures are just a few of many that I took.
