I got the job!

Several weeks ago, our family friend Kitty referred me to apply for a software testing position at Cisco Systems. I'm happy to say that I got the offer. I accepted it right away after figuring a regular job was better than an internship in the long run. If everything goes to plan, I'll be working at Cisco starting in December. Woohoo!

The transition from classroom to cubicle will be challenging: a full-time job is more demanding due to the longer hours and fewer vacation days. On the other hand, getting paychecks is far more rewarding than paying tuition. Another nice thing is not having to cram for exams. :-)

I had planned to continue studying at UC Santa Cruz and eventually apply for the graduate program. But because it's extremely difficult to take classes and work at the same time, I have little choice but to leave Santa Cruz after the quarter ends. Saying goodbye to this beautiful place will be tough. I guess we all have to make sacrifices in life. As they say... c'est la vie.
