Balancing Two Desires

Class has been as demanding as always, but it has also been interesting. Yesterday for my information security class I studied a section on password cracking and learned how to get a user’s password from a web page that he is logged into. As I learn more, the idea of doing penetration testing (ethical hacking) to help companies strengthen their security continues to intrigue me.

In my spare time I am trying to write. I said I would try to write some each day. I have not been fully successful, but I have written more than I did previously. I have brought out my notes from an idea I had for a fantasy world’s mythology. The idea came to me while I was still working at the warehouse, but because of the demands of life I put it aside.

Now I find myself wanting to work on that while I also need to focus on school. My classes need to take priority, but I occasionally fit in time to work on the mythology. I have organized and typed my handwritten notes into a Word file, and I am beginning to flesh them out in a private blog which only I can read. After I have developed them more, I will decide whether or not to post them here.

Needless to say, I am quite busy. Fortunately, I have a supportive work partner. Arwen sometimes likes to settle on the back of my chair while I work. She is a good buddy.
