Wow! You have a far commute from home to school! But all the sacrifices you're going through as a court reporting student will be worth it as a professional court reporter in the soon-to-be future! :)
I'm a court reporting student, too. I'm in the San Gabriel Valley area, and I'm going to transfer to Downey College in January. So excited for that! But not too excited for the 5 Freeway commute! Oh well! :P Hehehe.
Please check out my blog -- stenonerd.blogspot.com -- where I chronicle my court reporting journey and where I hope to be a good source of resource and encouragement to fellow court reporting students like yourself. Thanks in advance. :)
Hope you're enjoying your very special day! HAPPY BIRTHDAY! :D
