I have moved out of school for now. I have made many work place associates. I work hard at work like I did in school. I tend to code long 100 line or more programs in the SAS computer language for work. I learned this language at school in my statistics degree. I have come to know many SAS Press authors in the last two years. I have met these authors at the annual user conference. I was tempted to write a book myself for SAS Press and started this project last year.

Studying more about data gathering and taking a part time job in coding text drawn down from the net.
I have been reading a bit about qualitative interviewing which may come before focus groups. I have read a few other books on data gathering from human subjects in the past few years. I have not read a great deal about this yet.
I started training tonight for some work in text analytics. I am being possibly employed to code or classify text coming from popular Internet sites. I am not sure this job will work out.

I have been trying to get to the Association for Internet Researcher's annual conference for a few years now. These past four years I have priced plane tickets and two years ago, actually made hostel reservations in Sweden and registered before asking for a refund unable to afford the trip. This year I even tried fund raising with crowd sourcing and raised 25 dollars for the trip. I can't really justify spending our household budget on this trip.
I did spend household money on a SAS programming conference this past spring. This was directly related to my work and career so this was justified as there were threats of layoffs this spring at work. So this was an investment in my job.
