I normally don't post things about work or my career here, but this doesnt really fit anywhere else.

I've been working on this one php script for about 2 days. It basically updates very critical information about an user on several tables. Not something unusual but I've always been scared of testing scripts that affect our main user tables. And yeah we do have backups but this would be one of those times when reverting would be a b!tch.

So I decided to go hunting for a function that would test my MySQL query without actually running the query. And to my amazement, it doesn't exist! Not only am I amazed, I'm shocked somebody hasn't created a native php function.

God knows how much time did I spend figuring out why my queries were breaking when I started coding. It would be incredibly useful, since like me, I'm sure there are a lot of people out there that would like that safety feature. For now though, I'm just going to have to run the script and hope for the best.

These past few days I've been downloading (read: buying with itunes) a lot of new stuff.

This one I heard on a tv commercial. Got stuck in my head, and by fluke someone knew who it was. Totally hooked now.
Ingrid Michaelson - The Way I Am
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4ujIxbxYgHw (song actually starts around 0:58).

Then this one I heard on the radio. Colbie Caillat - Bubbly

Then there's the whole new James Blunt album, "All The Lost Souls". I love all his stuff, but my fav songs so far: "I Really Want You", and "I'll Take Everything".

Todd got me the new Kanye West album too. Its one of those that you get into slowly. the more you listen to it, the more you like it.

And completly by fluke, I heard a song called Tired of Being Sorry by Enrique Iglesias, then I found out it was covering an original song by a band/person (no idea) called "Ringside". Both are great. But Enrique's video is better.
Here's the Ringside version: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pG6qF_abO3o
Enrique's version: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X86S5oZzzh4

Last, I heard this tonight, a video featured on youtube. The song is so damn catchy. I love finding out new people that I really like. Band is called Socalled

Lately I started thinking that maybe it was time for me to change my wardrobe a little. I'm 24 years old and people still mistake me for an 18 year old. Not that I mind of course, but sometimes its a pain when everyone assumes you're still in school and haven't moved onto the 'grown' up world.

So I bought this dress, its right out of the 80s, totally not something I would ever wear, but it looks hot. Its 3/4 length sleeves and short, very short.

Then I bought these brown dressy pants with pinstripes, along with a 3/4 length sleeve dress shirt, in white, also with pinstripes. I put it on and it changed me completely, I looked like some sort of business person.

Then yesterday I bought this coat that I cannot wait to put on! Its black, knee length, form fitting, and really girly. I'm pretty excited to start wearing this one.

But now of course, I have to buy shoes. Turns out my shoe selection is too... sporty. So I'm considering that maybe there is a slight possibility I might wear flats next year. God I can't believe I'm saying that. So, I tried all these:

Fancy Shoe: Heel is too high, also, not something I can wear every day. Too drastic of a change.

Nice comfy ones: I liked these ones a lot. Although they're a lot like what my brother wears. I decided to pass on these, thinking I could get something more girly.

Soon enough I'll get something that will get me through the winter. Then slowly I'll start buying a shirt here or there that's not a t-shirt (my usual choices). I also started thinking I should buy more skirts and earings, they seem to be a hit.

So yeah. </end>

PS: all from H&M.

Unrelated: TV season started yesterday. Somehow I'm not nearly as excited for TV this year as I was about last. Sad.

"In September 2006, a group of African American high school students in Jena, Louisiana, asked the school for permission to sit beneath a “whites only” shade tree. There was an unwritten rule that blacks couldn’t sit beneath the tree. The school said they didn’t care where students sat. The next day, students arrived at school to see three nooses (in school colors) hanging from the tree."

I hate discrimination of any form, so I feel I have to pass this on, make people aware of it.

Britney: it was one of the worse performances I've seen of her. Carreer crash and burn.

Justin, Timbaland & Nelly: Awesome closing of the ceremony. Ironic that now JT is on top of the world and Britney is at the bottom of hers.

Sarah Silverman: who was the genious behind that idea?

Rihanna: She's the new Britney. She kicked ass.

I had more insights and funny comments, but I'm all out of inspiration this morning. I do have one thing to say, Award Shows are just going downhill.
