Bonnie and I both had some career related excitement in the past week or so. Last week, Bonnie found out that she won an Arbitron All Star award. Along with the award comes an all-expense paid trip to the Ritz-Carlton in Naples, Florida. She was very excited (and so was I). We are looking forward to our first trip without children in 7 years.
I've also had some career related excitement. Today I started a new job. I will be a Senior Database Administrator for Laureate Education, Inc. Laureate provides a university experience for full-time and working-adult students worldwide through its international network of accredited campus-based and online universities. This is somewhat of a change for me, moving away from systems development and towards systems administration. However, I have always had an interest in DBA roles, so this new job represents a fulfillment of that interest.
For the first time in quite a while, both Bonnie and I are happy in our vocational endeavors.
