I just hate the way my boss constantly can't Shite or get off the pot.

We are at a point with these parties where there is nothing left to do. We should just end the situation. He said as much last night. Before doing so he must decide one last thing, that means work for him and the other party. Instead, he wants to set up a telephone conference, WORK FOR ME. SO sick of it. Just do your job and stop setting up needless hearings.

Ugh I might have made a mistake though I am not sure I did.

We have a public system that we can make things private. I was asked to make something public in part. And put up a redacted thing. So I thought I did that.

But last night at 7 I got an e-mail stating that the press had reported something that was supposed to be secret.

The good news... within 10 minutes the information was pulled down period.

The bad news... it got out there and could be serious.

More frustratingly, it appeared that what I did was correct. I actually called a friend and she confirmed that what I did looked correct. I am not sure if somehow the got meta data from the redacted documents.

I can't really tell if I should report it... I feel like it will turn out to be an error on my part that I didn't see.

Honestly though I feel bad about this information getting out, I really don't care.

I am just tired and unsupported and I have 10 more years of this job.. and I am so tired of it. I sometimes wonder if I it would be better if I could get fired, though I know that will never happen.

I am getting more demands from my students and have to address them. I am running around trying to figure out what to do. I will be ok though. I just have to be patient and address their demands.

Not a big gripes. I just talked to a former coworker then I took a peek my previous workplace's instagram accounts, which I and my former team used to maintain. Quite disappointed. The feeds are too disorganized, one of them seems like to lose their brand identity. I can still see my past work though. It just feel sad, to see something you used to grow gets destroyed by the hand of an idiotic 'boss'.

Well, it is not my concern anymore. I am still free!

Not a big gripe just exhausted. Trying to take on new clients and work more to.cover both mine and my employee's payroll while I train her so she will eventually be revenue generating means more hours billing and more hours for training her. It's just exhausting. But her learning cover is flattening out after the first 30 days so that is good. We made a checklist on all the tasks she needed training on and have been steadily marking things off. Each one goes faster as knowledge is built on. She's also gotten past some initial performance fears and is just "throwing things against a wall" to see if they stick so we can keep the work machine rolling. It's going really well, but I am just dead tired.

I'm getting more demands from students and it is driving me nuts to address all of them. I will do my best. I tried to help one student by correcting her mistakes but she was not interested in hearing about them or reading about them. So, I have to bear and grin it and listen to her mistakes while pretending all is ok. I sometimes wonder why these students pay so much money for lessons, then don't want any corrections? Whatever!! I'll be ok. I think I will just accommodate her wishes and make her happy. Customer satisfaction is the most important issue in my work. I have realized that sometimes trying to be a good teacher does not matter in a for profit company. I really don't know why these students pay so much and demand that they have their way with the teachers despite the fact that they are not progressing as well as they could. Well, it is a job so I'll suck it up and just pretend. Some of these students are prima donnas. I have learned to just smile and say whatever to myself.

I am having some of my classes cancelled without notice. They just cancel them and don't give me any warning. But, that is how this company works. I am doing ok otherwise. But, I have stress from the cancellations and demands from students. I want to increase my hours but know it may be best to just take things moderately and not stress out too much about it. I like my job nevertheless.

I always try to be nice to my coworkers but the gal i work with the most can be so mean. she criticizes me all the time needlessly. I wish I could find another job but the thought of going through more interviews makes me cringe. it took me 18 interviews to get this current job. ack.. anyways, I am glad that I can at least vent over here. what kills me is I am hurting myself by feeling bad. she could not care less.
