and the good times roll

Wow it’s been a long time again since I’ve had time to update this. I finished out the school year with only two day’s of finals a few weeks ago and promptly packed and returned home, quickly unpacked just to pack again! I was off for the weekend to Ohio to attend the biggest amateur radio conventions in the country. The Hamvention was a lot of fun, I flew out with one of my professors from school and we stayed at his father’s house near the Hamvention. I did end up purchasing an Icom mobile radio and antenna there as well as enjoying the experiance and seeing an interesting presentation on the upcoming Icom D-Star digital radio system. We flew back home Monday the 19th and I started my internship the next morning.

So far I’ve been having a great time at State Fund Mutual the people I work with are great and I’m enjoying what I’m doing and the insight into the business environment as well. We’re in the process of replacing a fairly large percentage of older leased PCs in the office with new purchased ones. I’ve also been able to sit in on some of the meetings reagrding a new phone system, including the possibility of voice over IP which is another thing right up my ally.

Last week was also my big CurrentJam concert week so I basically got up, went to work, came home, ate quickly and headed off to work at the concert, got home, went to bed and did it all again the next day. It was certainly a lot of hard work but was also a very enjoyable experiance again this year and I’m already looking forward to next year.

All in all it’s shaping up to be a great summer, although I still haven’t unpacked, gotten my hair cut or any of the other couple dozen things I have on my to do list. One of my sister’s is graduating from high school on Monday but after that it should (hopefully) calm down for a while so I can get my list whittled down some. Well I best get back to that list, catch you later!
