Okay, I want to start today over.
Date: October 8, 2015
Days Spent on Project: 961
Location: NW Portland, OR
Person I would have sent it to: TBD
Music I listened to while sewing: I’ve got Spotify on in my office right now… but it’s on super low, so I don’t know what’s playing.
Thoughts/Feelings behind the block: I don’t really know what to say right now.
I’m feeling a little bitter and maybe a little resentful.
I’m going to sound selfish here, but… I don’t really care.
I just want some credit. Some credit. Any credit.
I just want people to recognize that the previous guy who had this job wasn’t doing his job. Let’s stop saying he was overworked and overwhelmed and a was shy and wasn’t able to stand up for himself and was walked all over by other departments.
I mean, how are you in management if you can’t advocate for yourself and your staff?
That’s mean, I know. I don’t know him at all. I’ll most likely never meet him. I won’t ever know what he was dealing with… what he was actually facing…
But, dammit. I’m dealing with the same people he was. I’m just doing my job and working hard at steering this ship, turning it around, making sure it moves forward and doesn’t sink. I know it’s petty, but I’m doing this job well and I’m tired of this theater thinking it’s because they have new designers.
Okay, petty rant over.
