BART Strike

This BART strike is annoying. Luckily, I still have the option of taking the bus to campus or walking there if I really have to. I have no idea what I’d do if I had to commute to SF. Usually, during labor disputes, I default to rooting for the workers over the ownership. For this scenario, I’ve adhered to the default, not having done much research. I don’t know what to think about the people who default to rooting for the other side. I remember looking at comments at ESPN during the NFL lockout, and people were blaming the rich players, even though the owners made way more and it was a lockout, not a strike. Of course, regardless of who’s right or wrong with the BART strike, I’m annoyed at how it affects me personally because I’m not a saint and I still think about myself.

AIC continues its fast pace. We focused on jQuery for Monday and Wednesday, going over DOM manipulation and then event handlers. On Friday, we started to ease back into PHP, going over front-end and back-end validation. This week we’re doing databases. Monday was SQL and the next two days will be PDO. Tomorrow we’ll focus on read operations, where they’ll get to display my comics. Friday will be designing a database and writing to it. I’m worried that may be too complicated.

I wanted to write an essay that would encompass the evolution of my current philosophies. I keep getting bogged down because there’s so much to cover and I don’t know what’s the best order. This seems like something I should try to break down into parts.
