If anyone has advice for navigating such situations, I’ll try almost anything.

If I may rant on this for a moment, it all stems from all my failed attempts to manage someone that reports to me at work. I’ve tried everything - coaching, giving examples, having her talk me through her process and providing feedback - and I’m still doing so much of her work for her. I’ve tried being direct but even with the most clear instruction, I get something other than what’s needed.

It’s been raining all day here, and I am so looking forward to the comfort food meal I have planned for tonight.

Me: I have made great progress on self image issues
Also me: *sees candid photo of me in the paper from a networking event* ok y’all need to tell me when I look like I want you to answer me these riddles 3 before crossing my bridge.

I’ve been training a new staff member in person all week and she is absolutely wonderful but omg do I need some alone time to recharge.

TV show musings 

It’s been two days since I returned from vacation and I’ve decided at some point in my life I need to live on a body of water.

Ever look around and feel like everyone else has their shit together and you still have college clothes in your closet from Forever 21 that somehow haven’t disintegrated with the passage of time?

bingooooooo 

dog, not really eye contact, food 

There is an intern here (not in my dept) that’s stuck sitting in a room with a bunch of middle age people that just complain all day and I want to save her so bad and let her know that adulthood is not all “I hate Monday’s” jokes.

Definitely on a kick with The National lately even though I feel their sound is best suited for cool, breezy yet sunny autumn days.

Hi everyone, guess who wasn’t ready to hurriedly grab a box of tissues as Stranger Things season 3 ended? Yup that was me.

I worked from home for the first time in 2 years and gotta day, there’s something really nice about working from your porch

A big party that I’ve been planning for work is happening this week and I honestly have more anxiety about this than I had about my own wedding 😬

I’m seeing one of my all-time favorite bands tonight and just might break my rule of not listening to the band’s music on the way to the show ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
