ohmygod... ohmygod... ohmygod...
i have a meeting today at 2 to talk with the head of my group about my frustrations with the crazy (aka my day-to-day manager)... i'm so nervous. i'm going to talk about it with another colleague at 12:30 to make sure that my message is clear and that i'm not leaving anything out. i'm so scared... and nervous... oh god, oh god, oh god..

breathe...
my hands are so sweaty... i've got a knot in my stomach... this blows... but i have got to be mature and i've got to get through this.


Edit: I had the convo. It was great. I'm comfortable because I'm not taking "the easy way"out, and I'm giving it one last shot... The head of my group was really receptive to the feedback. Hopefully, she'll coach the crazy (who hopefully take the feedback) and all will be well with the world... I'm not optimistic that anything will change. BUT, I am committed to being positive and to giving this a fair shot. I will. And I have the group-head's agreement that come mid-year, if we both agree that things are not going well, we'll make some changes. That's fair, right? At least I can honestly say that I am doing everything possible to make things work... and if it works, that's awesome. But when it doesn't, that's alright, too. Oh, and I cried. But it wasn't horrible... group-head was really great about it. And I trust her.
