Antique hats, ham radio books, job hunt, and Adobe CS3

Today involved job applications, trying on many and buying three antique hats, a trip to the library, and lunch in town. Two of the three hats are brown with wider brims and the third is navy blue. The blue hat is complete with brown and black feathers! All together I only paid $23, so I was very satisfied!

At the library, I met a fellow ham! I was in the electronics section and a fellow came up and replaced a book on the shelf. While he was there, he told me that Penn Tech has a much bigger electronics section, and I thanked him. When I told him that I was interested in amateur radio books, he found one on the shelf and handed it to me. He said it was the most recent of the books on that subject. I thanked him and told him that I am going to take my exam in two weeks. He said that he used to be licensed back in the 70's and was looking to get licensed again now that the Morse Code requirement has been dropped. He asked where I would be taking the exam and wished me luck. It was such a nice encounter and it makes me happy to see that amateur radio really is a nice hobby to get into.

As for the job application, I am feeling very overwhelmed. Information Architecture is a field that stands on the border between technology and information science. And so, I find that I do not have the background to get a technical job and I don't have the experience to get an information science job. Not only that, but I am regretting not buying Adobe CS3 Web Premium edition when I was still a student. The student edition is $500. The regular edition is $1600. That is over three times as much... I guess I will have to make due with what I have!
