Life is chugging along, with some minor plan adjustments

So in my December post I had mentioned I was going into web development. This is still true, I continue to be the web developer for a few sites, but I've also decided to pick up some Cisco networking certifications over the spring/summer. My goal is to have the CCNP and possibly CCNA (or CCNP) security certs by September. Then I plan on either continuing with web development, or picking up a networking job. If I go the networking route I would come to a fork in the road. If, after working for a time, I wind up liking networking I'll likely go for a CCIE certification. If not, I'll continue working and putting my extra effort/time/money into becoming a software developer. Either way I've got a lot of work ahead of me.

To reach my goal would likely require me to move to a city. Personally I can't stand the city, but with the lack of jobs in the mountains (out side of retail, restaurant, and hotel work) I'm going to have to put up with it in order to make a decent living.
