This week started out to be so promising, and then it turned out kind of horribly.
There’s been more “band drama,” which just makes band un-fun to me. Really, all I want to do is play music and have a good time. I have enjoyed being on the board for the past few years (will be seven years at the end of 2011?!), but it’s pointless for me to be there if my opinions are meaningless and I can’t even do anything in my current board position.
Then I have a big project at work that’s finally wrapping up, after four months. I had almost no guidance through this process, which involved developing training with no training development background, for a topic in which I also have no background. Now it turns out that the little bit of guidance I did receive may have been wrong (not the fault of the person who advised me, this thing is seriously like the blind leading the blind), and I have to work over the weekend to try to fix things to stay on target with the timeline.
Add to that the fact that I have no plans for this holiday weekend and my house is so hot. It’s semi-tolerable if you sit still and have the windows open and fan on.
In better news, I found a new favorite TV show. There’s been a marathon of Oddities today, so I’ve been watching it since about 6 AM when I woke up because it was too hot to sleep. (PS: I didn’t fall asleep until about 2 AM because it was too hot to sleep. I also took a brief, hot nap this afternoon.) Not only is the show really interesting, I love seeing how patient and supportive Evan is with some of their more whackadoo customers. The actual shop, Obscura, is in NYC, wouldn’t it be cool if I could visit there the next time I was in the area?!
