This is Swathi Sasidharan. First of all I want to wish you a very hearty welcome , Richard Reese. Especially, now, when I am going to write OCJP6 exam on, Nov 19, 2012 in Dublin, Ireland. I already have SCJP4(2004), but with the redundancy in my company, I really hope and work hard to get thru this exam, to try to make my job secure, for my 15 month old girl. My manager says - Swathi, you cant pass the exam, with the baby - but I want to prove him wrong.
People like you are always the BIGGEST inspiration for me. Thanks and heartiest welcome, Swathi (mom of a 15 month old girl & senior java programmer)
Thanks a lot , for replying me. And thanks a million for your wishes! Yes, she is my first child after a long wait of 7 yrs trying for a child. She is so precious for us, that we named her Aadvika meaning "unique". As you have told , now every one is warning me about terrible 2's and 3's. (she is already into the "terrible" phase - i think at 1.5 yrs)
