Sorry I have not posted much lately with the end of the year just being completed things at the office get crazy and then outside of work lots of events going on with my wife’s family. Looking back 2014 wasn’t a great year nor was a terrible year but it did go by rather quickly. 2015 is going to be my year. I have several projects lined up both professionally and personal.
On our personal side the wife and I are moving to a tiny house.. It’s nothing fancy just an old 12 * 20 storage shed we’re converting to a livable space while we sack away our income into savings to purchase a real house in the next 36 months or so.
The professional side is really scary this year. I work in the energy industry and with oil hovering around $50.00 a barrel our IT budget is shot. I’m not concerned about job security my management team is amazing and they will get us through this. So that leaves me time to really focus on being a DBA this year. I’m going to finis our last 4 server moves in the 1st quarter of 2015 and I’m also going to be tasked with helping revamp our customer pipe inventory system which is exciting.
I have scheduled my Microsoft Exams and I’ll be taking those as well. I will pass these test. I’ll update later in the next couple weeks with some really cool DBA things I’ve been working on to help out DBA’s who are on a shoe string budget.. I’ll outline it all in a couple weeks once I finishing my own internal testing.
