Christine is presenting our poster to the first meeting of the Citizen Science Association this evening, which means she's been very busy. I've contributed a teeny bit of editing. I was giddy with joy when i saw her black and white draft on Monday night: she presents us in such a polished and clear way. I hope this evening is not triggering for her but a encouraging and warm welcome from a broader community.
Work is OK. Stress is lower. I've a little itty bit of resentment building with my New Manager that i am working to manage. He has an issue with my vocabulary (larger than his, apparently) and is creating a frame for others (most critically our product person) that "[Elaine's] communication is way over everyone's heads." While there is some important critique of my communication to which i need to respond, i'm also feeling a little like i'm being seen through someone else's projection.
