In Which I Pick An Industry, Part 3

Yes, part 3… The subtitle?   “What about computers?”   Well?   What about them?   It’s undoubted just by reading this blog that you can tell I’m an unfocused individual.  Heck, I was being tested for ADD while I was in college.  And after having an autistic student for two years and researching more … Read moreIn Which I Pick An Industry, Part 3
