    Comptia A+. Want to keep pumping up the resume. That's where the money will be in education. Plus, it can be used in the private sector.

    I tend to open my mouth when it's time to eat something, but that's just me :D

    I study modern technologies, including cryptocurrencies, payment systems and the opportunity to make money in this niche. By the way, I found a lot of useful information on the https://its-your.club/ forum.

    Before school starts I want to make a new wreath for our front door. I made a spring themed wreath at the craft store when they had a workshop a few years ago so I think I can figure out how to make a fall wreath on my own. It would probably be cheaper to buy one already made but I think it will be fun to put together.

    We have really enjoyed having things opening back up. We’ve schedule some trips all the way through next summer, and we are going to concerts & comedy shows. It’s been great.

    I'm enjoying the last month of the summer. I postponed all serious matters to working season. At the moment I just try to relax. I sunbathe, read books, and watch TV. Since I installed https://www.firesticktricks.com/kodi-live-tv-addons.html, my TV is always turned on, that never happened during the school year. I also plan to go to the seaside for the whole week. Total revival before next school season.

    I've always loved these things, before & after COVID:

    - spending time w/ my Mom, especially the older she gets
    - any time w/ my fiance' no matter what we're doing together (cooking, eating, walking around, etc.)
    - rainy days
    - good TV/movie, especially if while eating good food
    - going biking - starting after COVID
    - going on drive a lot more often since COVID
    - having a nice stroll somewhere lovely
    - relaxing at home all day
    - enjoying a nice smoothie
    - good food
    - spending time w/ my dog (back when I had one at the time): Playing, walking, watching him snore when he slept, etc.
    - if I'm in the mood, making a nice dish/meal
    - having a nice walk

    (And in case you're wondering, no, I don't live in the type of location w/ a low population, has nothing much to do, has only 1 store or 1 street light in town where everyone knows everyone, etc. I've always lived in Southern California.)

    Since COVID, I no longer do these (most sad about last 2):
    - go to movies & I used to go quite a lot
    - dine in - no prob getting takeout or drive-thru
    - go to any live performing arts or sports arenas - not the way the cram people in like sardines :(
    - haven't travelled yet - plane maybe one day or road trips, but may never again on a cruise ship :(

    The majority of the time we are still staying home. We order the majority of our groceries, and we cook at home. Both of us are retired. We do, however, go to movies, concerts, and trips. We have both had the two initial and two boosters for the covid vaccine, but we will still mask in crowded areas. We also try to distance ourselves as much as possible when we are out, and we always wash our hands well.

    That’s where I live. :rofl:

    We have to drive 20 to 50 miles for things like movies, clothing shopping, and anything more than basic groceries. In a lot of ways I think the covid shutdowns have been easier on those of us from small, boring towns because we are used to not going very many places.

    I have to agree with you!!! Where I live, it is 10 miles to basic groceries and a single screen movie theater. To get to a walmart, target, or multi-screen theater it is 100 miles!!

    Well today we are at home watching the funeral on TV. Sad and fascinating in equal measure.

    Yikes! I don't know if it would be worth it to me to travel that far to see a movie. Maybe if I had other things to also do in that area.
    I saw a video on YouTube where this woman lived in a remote area of Alaska and she drove 10 hours round trip to grocery shop once a month. In the snow. Crazy.

    I wasn’t able to watch today. I was teaching for one of my friends who was out today. I’m hoping to catch some of it on replays.
