Well 2015 started, and to kick it off with a bang, I started a new job. I was asked like 15 years ago what I wanted to do going forward with my life. I said I wanted to be a system architect, and low and behold here I am. I’ve spent the last two weeks as a Sr. Systems Architect, and the work is exactly what I had hoped it would be. I get to set the direction, document where we want to go, and influence what we do going forward.
Of course with a new job comes it’s own set of challenges. I worked a little more than I would have preferred, but since it was challenging and interesting, it wasn’t a huge deal. Unfortunately with more work, that meant less play. At a time where the guild really needs more recruits, I wasn’t around as much as I had hoped. Now that I’m past the first deadline though, I hope to be able to get more recruiting down, and continue to help us push through into Mythic raiding.
I also hope to be able to post much more now that I’m doing less operational work, and more planning, architecting, and direction setting.
