i’ve surprised the hell out of myself three times in the past two days by acting completely logical and adultlike. i’m not sure if this is a bit of foreshadowing on my impending adulthood (15 more days).
episode one: the whole asking for a bigger raise thing during my review.
episode two: upon being handed the lastest route of this promotion i’ve been working on and seeing the copy totally rewritten and the creative direction of the project changed once again (after two seperate meetings to discuss this direction) i didn’t hit, punch, kick, scream or cry.
instead i rather calmly nabbed the two people responsible for this rewriting and direction change and pointed out that if they wanted something else they should tell me. it’s my job to write, not theirs. also, the direction changed and they never told me so how i can i deliver the copy they want when they don’t even know what they want.
i think i impressed most everyone within earshot on that one. even the bossman was impressed.
episode three: i’ve devised what i think is logical and rational plan to deal with aforementioned disappointing reveiw.
all this adulthood really tires a girl right out.
