Friggin' software. I'm not able to directly manipulate the SQL and the building tool automatically decides how to group things. I want to get rid of the personally identifying stuff that this one query is grouping by and have it aggregated at some higher level, like department. It's not going. Once I get rid of those fields that it's grouping by, it just doesn't group by this field and it blows up. I HATE YOU. If I could just write the SQL, it's just a couple words RIGHT THERE...


I'm falling behind on my studying.

I have a meeting with the boss today to talk about possible new projects and where I see myself going in this position in the short and medium term. I'm wondering how honest to be: in the nine months I've been in this position, I haven't learned a thing and haven't been challenged at all and don't really see either of those happening. I don't even know what they really want from this role and I'm not sure what they want, either. My short and medium term plans are to wait until I'm eligible to move within the company and then try to get a job elsewhere in the company while occasionally applying to external jobs. But, then again, the boss (who I never ever talk to, I think this is the second one-on-one meeting we've had here) mentioned a couple projects she thought might be interesting that are coming up.

Oy.

At least lunch is provided.

UGH. I just roll my eyes whenever this one database is mentioned because the design is atrocious.
