Thank you everyone for your kind words on the entry below. I've been in a strange mood this weekend. I usually don't write poetry under these circumstances but there it was inside of me so I started writing it down. I've never shared my poetry with anyone except once many years ago. I don't think it's very good. This stuff is a little different. I usually struggle to have things rhyme and have a pattern. You know, follow all the rules you learned in school.
Last week was a rough week. I don't expect this week to be much better. I have some challenges to face at work. Two employee evaluations to perform. One good, one not so good. It's the hardest thing about being responsible for people. Knowing that your actions, your words, will hurt them. Yet, not taking action hurts me. It's a lose-lose situation. I always strive to find win-win in my relations with people. I think I can buy her another month to turn things around but I fear it won't help and I'm just prolonging the inevitable. But, I'm also feeling worn out and don't want to go through the hassle of finding someone else right now. So, a month also buys me time.
I start my second session of classes on Tuesday. I sure hope these are a little easier. The two I just finished were grueling. The course material wasn't hard but the intensity of completing 16 weeks worth of work in 8 weeks, in some instances, is just overwhelming. After this, I'll have one elective Finance class to complete, which I can do after graduation.
I'm actually considering an independent study conducted under the direction of my creepy professor. I asked him a question regarding the company I work for and he suggested the independent study. I'd like to do it because it would be something real as opposed to all these hypothetical cases we are required to analyze. My by-product could actually have a productive use.
