gosh, i hope this doesn’t have anything to do with me, leaving my job. maybe though – can’t help feeling like a lame duck now.
last night I had this dream that I was in the middle of our student staff meeting. all my student workers were there. we were out in the main lab and everybody was seated down a row of machines. I tried talking to them, but they weren’t listening. I had just announced that I was leaving Haas – they smiled politely….but they didn’t care. They started talking among themselves, making plans – finding ways to improve what I’ve done for the last 4 years. They ignored my attempt to bring order to the meeting and there were other customers in the lab. Sometimes, they would try to quiet down to hear me speak – but they lost interest fast. I was so frustrated – I still had a whole agenda to work through. Nobody listened to me….it was like I wasn’t there.
