And today, I’m back in the office. Progress folks!
Of course, my return was somewhat marred by an email I sent a supervisor that was taken completely the wrong way- I asked, mentioning that I deferred to her decision, about whether I was being reassigned to a new workgroup and the name of my department had changed based on a diagram of our new office space being sent around. She took it as my being unwilling to be a team player. Ugh. By the time we stopped emailing and were face-to-face, I’d managed to work up to almost tears. Which is never exactly the level of professionalism I want to display in the workplace. And made me look like a big baby whiner over a silly office move (in which I am the sole person from my department in a totally different suite with people from another department). I thought I had a valid point, but I didn’t bring my A game.
It must be Monday. Only 432 more emails in my inbox. I should have stayed on the good drugs for the day….
Instead, I’m off to see a bad movie, grab takeout, and huddle up with some grad school homework. And maybe Tuesday will be better- even if it’s supposed to snow. Hope all of your Mondays were lighter on you!
