katernater: (castle • (bad day))
I feel physically and emotionally drained today. We've been dealing with some internal politics this week at work and it's made everyone a little crazy. The usual upbeat, jocular atmosphere has been replaced by a group of crabby teachers who just seem to be pushing themselves to get to the end of the week, myself included. I finished planning tomorrow's lessons this afternoon and, after fifteen minutes of just sitting at my desk staring at the wall, I was like, "Okay, guys, I've really got to get out of here before my brain falls out of my ears." I think the worst part of it all is that there is very little communication between the people who know things and the people who don't. Our schedule moves in such a way that there aren't really a lot of opportunities for the staff to get together and discuss pertinent program issues outside of the weekly staff meeting. That results in a lot of speculation, paranoia and general discontent among the staff.

In general, I know that this too shall pass. I have not worked with these people for very long, but I have a good sense about them. I think that we will all band together and work through this rough patch. And there are still many more good things at work every day than bad, so I'm not at the point when I dread getting up in the morning. I just wish that the political side of it would sit the hell out for a while.

Also, even though I know nothing about video editing or the movie-making process, I have decided that if I could have any job in Hollywood or the film industry, I'd want to be the person who cuts together all of those science and technology montages you see in movies. Like this scene from Mega Shark Vs. Giant Octopus, for instance. (Hey, Deborah Gibson, where'd you get your Ph.D.? Foxy University?)
