ROCO Friday – The Reverend Considers A Return

Hi. First, let me explain that title. Or better yet, use the search functionality to look for ROCO. If you aren’t going to, I’ll give you a brief explanation, but you’ll better get the gist if you look. ROCO (rock out with your cock out) Fridays are days in which, well, you’re just supposed to ROCO. They usually include music and an inspirational message. Our good Reverend MiamiShyner has been on quite the hiatus, but perhaps she’ll make some sort of grand return here in 2014.

Let the congregation say, ROCO!

While we await the Reverend’s return, let’s consider another topic: today’s writing prompt. It is a tough one today, asking what is number 11 on my bucket list. Well, since I’ve never created a bucket list, it’s pretty difficult to answer this one. I’ve been fortunate enough to have led a fairly interesting life, so what would I even put on a bucket list? I suppose I could put some places I want to visit, like this, but I don’t really know what else I would put on there. Maybe I should make a late NYR to create a bucket list. Ha! So does this make me a boring person because I don’t have a list of “one day”, only a list of “been there, done that”? Doubtful. Oh wait! I just remembered something else I want to do! I wouldn’t actually put it on a bucket list, but it is something I want to do and I’m going to take care of it in 2015. Lots and lots of ski/snowboard resorts offer camps that are usually a couple of days and are for women only. I’m going to do that next year. Probably at Winter Park. Maybe if I’m fortunate I’ll sneak one in over at Park City as well. I need to start saving immediately.

Speaking of saving, perhaps/probably you’ve seen that little savings plan floating around Facebook or the internet wherein you throw an amount in a jar (or your bank if you want to be more traditional) once a week that corresponds with the week of the year. At the end of the year, if you’ve stayed true to the savings, you should have nearly $1400. The 52 week savings challenge it’s called. It’s like paying income tax to yourself! One dollar and some Whiskey In A Jar for this week. Play along and buy yourself something nice at the end.

I have no segue back into professional related stuff. But I’ll be setting aside some time this weekend, between grocery shopping, possible snowboarding, and a FabPole workshop, to start looking into my SharePoint training and to start revisiting my old enemy, PHP. Many, many moons ago, I started learning PHP but it went along the wayside with learning HTML, CSS, and the like (man, am I stupid). But now, I think my brain is ready for it. Even though there’s a lot of junk up there, I know there’s space for more. Hello, smart me. I remember you. You used to hang out a lot. Then you quit using your brain. Welcome back.

I’ve not forgotten my Zero To Hero commitment. There just wasn’t really anything to actually blog about today, just an assignment on pretty-ing up the place. I did it. Did you notice? (if you’ve been here before, that is) Only way to tell me is in the comments. Ready, set, go!

Say What?
