Boy, do I feel your pain. I've been trapped in a job supporting a graph system. That's all I do, support this one system. It's important, but I feel like my knowledge of this graph system is a real problem, because I can't get opportunities to do much of anything else. Of course, no one else wants to touch this system. It's sort of like the proverbial kiss of death. Motivation is a *huge* problem, and my frustration hovers just below the surface. My hope now is in being reassigned. To get to the point, I have found the only thing that gets my motivation up at all is my faith in Christ. If I work for Him, then I can hold myself accountable, if I work for them I just don't care.
