Class & Career thoughts  
Had a great class during the past week which really energized me, and hopefully will give me better career directions and options.

The instructor for the class was great, and seems knowledgeable and supportive of people getting places in their careers and opening up new opportunities.

I had the opportunity to car pool with him, which was fabulous on an interaction level (maybe sort of a casual interview sort of thing - do I have a brain & some ambition?) – not to mention it's a looong drive through traffic. I was pleasantly surprised that at the end of the day he mentioned that if I ever needed work he would be willing to help me look for work. He has a fabulous network in the area, so that is a pretty valuable offer. He also wants to see more of my work, both the old old NPBPI stuff and talk about SOX some.

      o	Do I have enough hours to take PMP instead of CAPM?

Keeping super busy is the way to go - no time for other worries.
