I don't feel adequate when it comes to data

I'd like to think that I'm a place in my career where I'm pretty solid when it comes to object-oriented programming, specifically with C#. It took awhile, but as the various frameworks and tools evolve, so do my skills to use them. I mean, a year ago, I didn't see why Inversion of Control was important, and now I do.

Where I start to struggle though is the bridge to data. Objects don't always map particularly well to relational data, and I find myself sometimes spinning my wheels when it comes time to get dirty with the database. The bigger project I've been working on lately has been like that, with me hitting a wall in terms of the data picking, at least, picking it in a relatively efficient way. Granted, a part of that might be me getting a little too reliant on ORM's too.

But in any case, I need a distraction, a science project. I have something in mind...
