Yea, I'm still making this so, hang on, please!

I was born on January 5th, 1992. I changed schools half way through 2nd grade because my family was moving out of the district. I then started working at a local Burger King franchies right after I turned 16 (January 2008.) I got promoted to a shift coordinator just a year and a half after I started (I was 17 and a half.) I graduated in the second district in the year 2012 with goals of being a computer forensics specialist. I then attended Pittsburgh Technical Institute concentrating in Information Technology Network Security and Computer Forensics. PTI has something called "PTI+" where while you are attending, you can take another concentration for the price of only books. So I decided to also take up the Network Administration side of IT also. I wanted to know as much as I could before I left PTI. While working for my degree, I moved to the Burger King out near school (which happened to be the same franchies, so that made everything very easy) where I became the opening shift coordinator. I was in charge of making sure that the store was prep'd for the whole day, and opened on time. It wasn't the best job in the world, but it helped me get through college and pay bills. With PTI, students take 7 quarters of classes, and then the last quarter is their internship with no classes during that time. Now, since I am taking two concentrations within IT, I also had to take night classes. So during this time, I would open BK, afternoon classes, and then a few nights a week attend night classes. Some days, I have no idea how I managed to stay awake. The work load was very heavy, but so far, I've managed to pull through it all. I found an internship at Dick's Sporting Goods as one of their IT Help Desk techs at their headquarters that starts July 18th. While I am doing my internship, I will also have night classes to take. Shouldn't be that hard since I no longer have afternoon classes and work to balance, just work.
