This time last year I was partaking in a Twitter pity party for fellow folks who had gotten the thanks-but-no-thanks-better-luck-next year letters from PASS Summit selection committee. I was used to it. I have submitted to speak at the PASS Summit regularly for the last few years but was denied each time. This year I am skipping the pity party because I got selected!!! I will be presenting one of my favorites, spatial data, to the fine folks in Charlotte! I am so excited but a bit out of sorts since I haven’t been in this spot yet but have wanted to be for so long. Making me think of dogs who chase cars, they wouldn’t know what to do if they caught one. This dog caught a car! I have had this as a top one on my professional wish list, what next? I will need to come up with some new goals and new cars to chase.
To my peeps having the pity party, keep your heads up and keep on kicking butt out there! You’ll catch that car next year. And until then I’ll tip my
40 IPA to my homies! Well no I won’t tip beer since that’s wasteful but I will definitely drink this one in your honor!
