What I do all day….

I’ve been keeping a journal of what I do during my work day the last two weeks, trying to determine what I enjoy most about my job and figure out what I want to do next.

This past week has been insane; keep in mind that I manage software development – that is my actual title. See if you can spot where I did that….



DW Build failed – Spent the entire day rerunning process, validating numbers, caching data and running reports. All manual.

Two hours of making nice meetings

Designed a web site for initiative launch

Validated projection models for discounts and rate changes
