It's been a F#@k of a day

Post by Jeepz »

It's been one f#ck of a day today. I might say it's been a week already (and it's only Wednesday). Client management and on the verge of losing a valued client. And while I'm in crisis mode, I found out that we didn't get selected for a project I was really hoping we'd win and would have kicked off the new year on the right (financial) note. Yeah, win some/lose some, but I really thought we had the right team and the right proposal. This one stings for a lot of reasons. And the next couple of months are looking slim. Just needed to vent. I'm frustrated. Pissed. Worried. It's been a day.

Thanks, Maeve. I'll survive. Just needed to unload a little.

I know I'm just screaming into the void. But then, that's what this room is for.

You know that level of overwhelmed where you just can't do anything? Yeah. Frustrating. Terrifying. Exhausting.

I have a meeting in 45 minutes to help my boss tell my other boss that she becomes overly aggressive and railroads meetings when she's frustrated and needs to knock it off. Wheeeee.... :?

We’re in the midst of a project to totally revamp how we write/deploy code, on top of which I am losing two afternoons/week in leadership training, and a bunch of other new project or current project status meetings.

I tried to finish up (minor tweaks of) a project over the weekend that’s already two weeks late, and I can’t get the tests to compile in this new framework, and we blew 1/2 the day trying to address that. Accomplished nothing.

Accompanied today, oddly, with sudden bouts of sadness/(frustration-induced, maybe?) over this(?), or is it the ongoing preoccupation as teenage me obsessing over my then girlfriend..?

Yeah, so Monday.
Yep. *that* fduncan. Board-crasher, right-coaster, fat-thumbed grammar nebish

All my days are running together, and sometimes it's hard not to resent all the virus deniers I'm surrounded by.

This is a dark timeline.
