You ever have those nights consumed by all things SQL?
I do. It happens more than I might like sometimes. Usually it happens when there is a work problem that I am trying to solve.
I don’t mind it sometimes because it does provide some results at times. Other times it is of no use.
Sometimes when multi-tasking like this, I wish I could recall some of the code. Others, I don’t care to recall the code. And yet other times, the code sits fresh in my head until I sit at a keyboard. Sometimes, that last one is the only way I am going to get some sleep – find the laptop and then bang out some code.
Of late though, my SQL dreams have been very relaxing. I have been pouring through books and thinking about topics I might want to study more in depth to become that more well rounded DBA. Of course, these studies also have another goal in mind. I am working toward the MCM.
So as I study and think of those extra tidbits I want to learn, I also dream of exotic solutions and implementations. I have been sleeping better and dreaming more about SQL. Which is kind of weird come to think about it. But hey, I will enjoy these SQL dreams and hopefully it will be more than just dreams. I will soon know if I get to move on to the next exam as I will be taking my Knowledge exam tomorrow.
My question for you is: Do you Dream of SQL? If you do, what kinds of SQL Dreams do you have?
Oh and if you practice this at your desk, do you just tell your boss that you are multi-tasking?
