Ok, I changed jobs again. Things were going really well at my old job (mentioned in my three year old journal entry...) I just needed to get out and do stuff from the ground up again. I haven't really done any system design in the past three years. I have been on 18 different projects in that time. Two of them used up a year and a half. All of those project with the exception of the very last one were following up other people's projects as they quit the company, got promoted or otherwise moved on. I was just done with cleaning up after everyone else. I want to start doing my own projects again. I guess you could say I am mature in my field at this time in my career.
