I missed a few days of #bloglikecrazy, but it’s ok because I was taking a much-needed rest from thinking. I work in technology so working with technology after hours gets a little old sometimes. I have to give my mind a rest. And by rest, I mean play endless hidden object games on the iPad (I only have so many “I Spy” books on hand) and gathering crops in Hay Farm. I also read a lot. I missed a few of the writing prompts, so will be catching up on the ones I’m particularly excited about like a post about something I totally geek out about, a post about fitness, and my favorite pro-woman anthems or your personal musical mantra.
Let’s geek out, shall we? Since I AM in IT, I tend to geek out about new and exciting things in my field. I am currently loving Amazon Web Services and all the many, many, many things they offer. You can do a million different things with THEIR equipment and basically just rent it. It’s especially fun (and geek-worthy) learning an entirely new “language” and making things work. I have run into a few snags along the way, but with perseverance, – and great tech support from AWS – we got them resolved and working like a charm. And they add and expand features everyday, so it will be a continued learning process as long as I’m in IT. Yippee!
There aren’t a lot of non-technical things that I geek out about. I have my favorite shows (file those under guilty pleasures like Javacia did), favorite music and the like, but I don’t really geek out about much. As far as how stuff works, I think I may have filled my brain with computers and networking and I’m full.
Find peace inside.
