Not for nothing, but I've been very busy lately. Since the election I've been studying for the Cisco CCENT certification exam, which I just passed earlier this morning. Now I'm somewhat qualified to maintain and support Cisco equipment. (see below - artist's conception)
Beyond this, there's the full CCNA cert, and then such tracks as CCDP, CCIP, and CCSP, eventually leading to a CCIE level. Suffice it to say, this is only one step in what is likely to be a long term pattern of studying and exam taking.
But for now, I think I'm just gonna enjoy the holidays!
