I really do need to do a better job of updating – I’ll try to stay on top of it. But there are some good reasons – I promise. :)
Now that I am pretty much fully out of training, the variety and amount of work that I have to do has really picked up quite a bit. I officially released a new userAdmin application (into development mode) on Friday. It’s going to be full-fledged into production by the end of the year. In addition to this, we have an internal conference (SysCon) coming up in just a few weeks, and I will be giving some presentations, so I have been preparing those. As soon as the conference is over, I will post the slides up here- the app that we will be using for demos and classrooms is the userAdmin app, so I am really excited about that. Another project for the year is turning our main dashbaord into a web application.
Also at work, I am the Vice Lead for an organization called UPTies- it’s basically an organization for people who are new to the company. I also have an audition on Monday to join the UPChoir… I am debating joining the professional Omaha music group here too – it will give me an opportunity to get back into piano and maybe an opportunity to sing some duets or solos!
I am also thoroughly enjoying having a TV! I have been keeping up with LOST, 24, and American Idol. Has anybody seen Anoop Desai – he is some seriously hott stuff (great singer, great performer, and he’s good-looking)! :) Anyway, it’s quite nice being able to come home from work and relax- I still can’t get over the great feeling of having no homework. :)
Now that the weather has gotten nicer, I am also trying to see about joining a tennis league here. In addition to this, there is a group of Telugus that get together and play beach volleyball, go biking, and just do a bunch of fun outdoor activities. :) So I’m excited to get invovled with that.
All in all, it’s been quite busy but fun. Anyway, I guess that’s all the news for now. :)
