Trying to avoid spinning my wheels

So here's where I'm at right now: I finished up the basic blog application I was working on last week and now I'm looking for something new to sink my teeth into. I started chapter 14 in Beginning Ruby, which is about how Ruby interacts with the internet, but so far it not exactly what I'm looking for. I felt like I learned a lot of practical information really quickly when I was working on the blog application, so I've been trying to find some more hands-on tutorials.

Here's the problem: there are a fucking TON of hands-on Ruby and Rails tutorials online. I'll likely continue with the tutorials on, but the next guide is about database migrations and seemed a bit less practical to me. Still, maybe I just need to power on through and do it, considering how much I learned from the last tutorial. If anyone has any suggestions, I'm all ears!

On the plus side, actually writing code and understanding what the code will do is coming mure more easily now.
