12:37 pm - What the hell are we supposed to do now? (aka work crap)
A few closed meetings in higher-up supervisor offices today--but that's normal.

Hearing that my two supers and the super of the department I previously worked in have all quit today--that is most certainly not normal.

Half the reason I'm still at this job is because of my supers. They're kind, generous, and under them we get stuff done. Which means they've been under mondo stress all year, especially this fall, and I guess that either they're bucking the stupidity from higher up in our company (entirely possible), or they're all just worn out.

Our department was already in flux, though; we're in the middle of adding Focus Features to our clients, and clearing up the muddle that left from summer. Hiring new auditors, new tearsheet people, someone to handle making folders (cause SHE quit a month ago).

I don't know what the flipping heck we're going to do. Or what I'm going to do. Maybe I should be off looking for a new job as well. I have a feeling that the shit has hit the fan, and at the very least the projects I'm already behind on are going to become completely lost. *bangs head slowly against desk*

What? I already have a headache from this insanity; can't get much worse today.

And up till now, this was such a nice, stress-free job. Wah.

If it helps at all, ah feel yo pain. Went through something similar at the last job. Finally had it with doing the work of five people and left. Now I have the shiny receptionist job, which does get stressful sometimes but it also has slow hours when I get to read. So I view that as a step up from being crazy all day every day.

Well, it doesn't help too much, but always nice to hear that someone else survived the insanity. I just....ffff. I'll go eat lunch and keep doing work and try not to freak out.

And maybe see if any of the supers can let me know if I need to be focusing on getting information from them so I don't have to be sorting through crap I know nothing of in order to figure out what they've been handling all year. *whimper*

Sorry if that seemed dramatic re: the situation, I guess I'm in a dramatic mood. :-)

*snerk* No, it's about as dramatic as I feel. Good quote, btw. Thanks. :-)

Praying for you. I've been in some variations of where you are . . . and if your supposition that the supers are just worn out is correct, I've been there, too.

Don't jump the gun on the "looking for a new job thing," but it's always good to have a current resume.

Will discuss more in depth via e-mail.

Well, in the back of my mind I was already considering a new job search, mostly because this one is so mind-numbingly boring. :-) But no, I wouldn't jump the gun and starting doing interviews or anything, worry not....

Bwah! Who knows? Maybe I will. And a pay raise. Mmmm. Heh.

I do keep thinking about the coming "good corner" that we've been sensing, and wondering at the timing of this...change may seem bad or drastic but its an awfully good way for Our Lord to get my attention and point me in a new direction. *shrug*

Oh, good. A reason to share one of my all-time fave movie scenes.

Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade. The last of his "tests." Indy stands at the edge of a very long drop, and the directions to get to the Grail tell him to take a leap of faith. But there's nothing there--just open air. So he takes a breath, steps out, and . . . there's a bridge. A bridge that he didn't seen before, once he's taken that step of faith, it's obvious. I love that scene because that's so how faith works. We don't see how things are going to work until we take a leap of faith.

Good things might very well be in the offing. Heck, I just told DH about it, and his first response was, "Does this mean she's going to get bumped upstairs?"

I'm really, really trying not to. There's supposed to be an official meeting about it later today or tomorrow (right now it's just the ever-swift office grapevine), so maybe some stuff will be cleared up then.

God knows. I'll leave it to Him.
