Hi ho, hi ho, it’s off to school I go…

Well, it’s online to school, anyway. This week begins my second year (chronologically; I’m half-time so I’m still a freshman) of college. I’m taking two online classes this semester, a Technical Writing course and one on Database Design. Both appear very interesting, although fortunately they should be somewhat easy given my experience. I’m looking forward to learning some new things, but between classes, closing on and moving to our new house next month, and Roundtable travel, etc., my blogging may slow down more than it already has. Or, if I end up writing a bunch of interesting stuff for my Technical Writing class, I may post some of it and get some extra-good content! That, and if there’s an assignment where I want to procrastinate, what better to do than write a blog post instead? :-) We’ll see how it goes, no promises! I won’t stop completely, so don’t think I’ve disappeared!

There are some really cool things I’m seeing both in and out of the Church IT specialty in my feed reader, even though I’m lurking. I’ll be at Jason Powell’s Roundtable next month, and possibly at the national CITRT in Kansas City in early October, but that’s still to be determined. If at all possible, I’ll be at both! As sad as it would be to spend time away from our new house we’ll have only been in for half a month! Not to mention my wife — we’ve never spent a night under separate roofs since we got married in 2005, and our second anniversary is in October. Fortunately, it’s not the 3rd or 4th! :-D
