Fall Classes 2010

August 16th, 2010

Fall Classes at CCSF start today. This semester I am taking on a difficult challenge — working full-time AND being a full-time student.

I’m taking the following five classes:

  • Data Structures & Algorithms: C++
  • MySQL Databases
  • Introduction to Unix/Linux
  • Computer Architecture with Assembly
  • Flat Pattern Design I (as in clothing patterns)

Why am I taking on so many classes? The answer is simple: I am only four classes away from obtaining my Certificate in C++ at CCSF. I’m so eager to obtain this certificate that I’m willing to dedicate all of my time to this goal. Hopefully, after obtaining my Certificate in C++, I will be one step closer to enrolling in a Masters Program for Computer Science!

As a means of balance, the Flat Pattern Design I class is present to help me keep my sanity. Since I’ve decided to go back to school, I told myself that I should enroll in at least one “fun” class every semester. For my past two semesters, this class was Japanese, and this semester, it is Flat Pattern Design I.
