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 three things you can look forward to in the next month.
I’m writing this before I travel, and today I’m in Belgium at the Data Minds Connect conference. The first live conference in nearly two years for me.
I’m looking forward to a lot of things coming up. The first one is SQL Saturday Orlando 2021. This is the first live SQL Saturday taking place since the pandemic hit. While it might be a little early, there are other events starting to move forward and I’m glad this one is taking place. I’ll be traveling back to Orlando at the end of the month.
Second, I am really looking forward to volleyball starting again. Last year was an incredibly long season, about 11 months for me. I was worn out in June when we finished, and I needed a break. However, after a few months off, I’ve started to watch some of my team competing in high school, and I’m ready to start coaching.
Third, I am looking forward to cooler weather. It’s been a long, hot, dry summer in Colorado, and I’m ready to put on some jackets and enjoy fall. I’d love snow, and I’ll likely still wear short pants as often as I can, but I like the changing weather.
