Remember when I mentioned this time last year (man, so much has happened since Halifax) when I said that King’s would likely be my last foray into academia? Nope. That was wrong. Again. Humber College is seducing me, what with their practical skills training and evening and weekend classes. So wrong but so right.
Today I decided to go full-speed ahead on the web design certificate. I enrolled in another two courses, bringing me up, by the end of May, to a whopping four courses out of a possible eight before earning the certificate. I know, I know, this may be a little nuts. It’s out in the West End of the city, it’s an outlay of funds, but the investment is worth it. A full-fledged web designer by the end? Can’t beat that.
THE BOSS: As I was riding on a very stinky TTC bus last night after class, I put on Bruce Springsteen’s Greatest Hits. It’s amazing how good the guy really is – even after years, his music still seems to transcend the decades of competing tastes.
I listened to the songs Born to Run, Jungleland, Nebraska (still my favourite), Born in the U.S.A., Tunnel of Love, Human Touch, Streets of Philadelphia, The Ghost of Tom Joad, The Rising and Devils & Dust. Yeah, sorta predictable choices. But still, it’s good to know Springsteen’s still got cultural resonance these days, especially in a time of corporate stardom.
