mood - frustrated: awmp

Maybe these aren't my people

Today was an eight-hour meeting with the theater board, discussing things in depth that can't be covered in a short (ha!) board meeting. I went in dreading it, but it wasn't quite as bad as I thought it might be. Still, I'm very proud that I didn't end up hurting anybody before I left. And hey, here's a surprise. Suddenly, they're planning an annual budget. I guess having somebody bring it up was all they needed to light a fire.

Still, I don't see myself lasting beyond this season. I can't say I really enjoy most of these people outside of a theater, and the artistic director is a control freak who rubs me the wrong way more often than she doesn't. I've been warned off her by somebody I trust a lot more than her, so I'm just going to do what I can, not screw up, and then beg off at the end of the season with wanting to pursue more hours at the library.
