Hello World

I'm going to start off saying that I've never tried to maintain a blog before.  So, this will be an interesting experiment to say the least.  Please consider the following my brief introduction. My name is Mariah Sexton.  I was born, raised, and still live, in Fairbanks, Alaska.  This blog is going to be a scattered collection of thoughts about technology, career advancement in a remote location, and my future aspirations. My first real "grown up job" was as a service writer at a car and truck repair facility.  After several years, I transitioned to FAA regulated records maintenance.  I went back to school, and quickly discovered that a single income and student loans was not a feasible way to support a household with two kids.  In 2009, I took a job as a manager at a small independent computer repair facility.  After passing some initial certifications, I worked as a bench technician combination manager.  From there I transferred to a Computer Technician position
