Thanks to y'all who commiserated about New Director. I shared my gratefulness with my colleagues for their camaraderie today. I should thank my good colleagues more often. I had good meetings with other folks. There's one person i think i consistently piss off in another group, a interaction made very difficult with the phone calls. I need to try and balance the difficulty of waiting for people STOP TALKING so the person not in the room can get in questions (so many people will just keep talking if they can't see the non verbals) and my learned assertiveness in interjecting/interrupting.
Hoping i can unwind quickly and fall asleep, as tomorrow has another long march of meetings.
With nebulous well wishes for all and a sad sense of missing y'all. (And are LJ & DW even more quiet? Or is it just my distracted mind?)
