This week I’m taking a “Fundamentals of SQL” class at the local branch of our County College. I’m a bit nervous, because it’s out of my educational comfort zone (which solely entails listening to Coffee Break Spanish and TechTV podcasts). But, I believe that the future – my future – is going to lie in managing the vast quantities of data that is served up online. And it’s time to jump in and wrangle some knowledge.
This class, paid for months ago, coincides with the finale of Dancing with the Stars. The fact that I’m upset about that should disqualify me from taking the class altogether. I’m going to try to refrain from murmuring “Go Apolo” during class.**
It’s an 8 hour course – The class runs from 6pm-10pm tonight and Thursday. I’ll go straight from work. Poor Poochus McDoofus. I’m going to try to take as late a lunch as possible so he won’t be miserable waiting for me.
**My personal finishing order: Apolo, Joey, Laila. Laila was hampered by less-than-stellar choreography from Maks. Apolo is the better dancer, but bad-ass dancing-with-blindfolds aside, I liked Joey’s freestyle better. Apolo, though, showed better technique to my untrained eye. But Drew will be back tonight. Drew! Squee! Yay for DVR!
