Welcome to the Voice of the DBA, thoughts from Steve Jones on databases, SQL Server, and life.

May 30, 2014

This is my last day of work this quarter as I start my sabbatical at 5 o'clock today. I'll be gone for the next six weeks, away from SQLServerCentral, trying to improve and grow myself while staying as unwired as I can during that time. The rest of the staff here at SQLServerCentral will pick up the load, and I'm sure everything will be fine.

This is a bit scary for me. I've pretty much been employed full time since I was 17, only taking a few, short, involuntary stretches of unemployment in almost 30 years. Even during those times without a job I was focused on finding a job almost every day, so it felt as if I still had the job of finding a job during those times. I'm nervous about taking the time off, and certainly worried a bit about SQLServerCentral as I'm not sure I've been away from the site for more than a week since it was founded.
