MATC and Other Stuff that Goes Ding... ;)
For those of you that have never watched Doctor Who, the only part of this title you need to think about is 'MATC'. I included the other part for Doctor Who fans, just for laughs.
But yeah, this post is mainly about MATC.
Now you are thinking:
"MATC? What is that?"
Well, MATC stands for Mountainland Applied Technology College.
By this point, you are wondering why Matt is talking about it so much, and I am getting to that...
I registered at MATC to certify as a welder!! *Applause Here* Yup, in case you guys didn't know, I am taking a Vocational metals class with Bill at Timpview, and I have really enjoyed it. I love the hands on work, and so when a chance to register for MATC came up, I grabbed it!
Like literally, I grabbed it. I was the last one to register for the course, and I didn't even know I was going to register that morning when I woke up. It just sort of happened really quickly.
So that is pretty cool. I will be going to High School in the mornings, and at 6:00 in the evening I will be going to weld until 9:00 in the evening. The days I weld will be Monday-Thursday, 6-9. I will still be able to have a life on Friday and Saturday, so that made me happy, but ultimately, I will be very busy.
That is about it for now, but I wanted to include some pictures of welding for you guys to see what I will be doing.
That is just some of the awesome stuff that I will do in welding. Luckily, the course I have signed up for will end somewhere around the end of High School as well.
That means I can get a job right out of high school to help put me through college. I will probably work full time in the summer before going to college in the fall. I am trying to get my degree in Public Relations when I attend college.
Thanks for reading this whole thing guys! I just thought I should update on my life! :) Love you all!! Have a great day!!
