I started to add a daily coping tip to the SQLServerCentral newsletter and to the Community Circle, which is helping me deal with the issues in the world. I’m adding my responses for each day here. All my coping tips are under this tag.
Today’s tip is to write down a place or event that you want to attend in the future.
I am looking forward to live events, like SQL Saturdays, again. I really, really want to see some professional people and talk tech.
However, for me, to try and start coping with a changed world, I have a simple thing. Actually two things. I want to go to a movie in a theater, and I want to go to a comedy club. I haven’t done either of those things in 15 months, and they are things I’ve enjoyed with my wife.
My last comedy show was in Las Vegas, early last February. The last movie I think we saw was earlier, January or December 2019. I miss those breaks from life where my wife and I get out of the house and do something that’s fun.
We’re vaccinated and things are changing, so I’m hoping we can do one of these things in the next few weeks.
