Hope things look up for you soon man!
    Thanks, but yeah, her expectations are definitely worrisome and while I can definitely deliver on a few things she wants done, I doubt I'm going to be able to deliver on everything perfectly on time like she's expecting. I definitely wouldn't quit, but I'm just afraid of that one-on-one meeting with her and that sudden "we just don't think this is a good fit for you" conversation and then it's out the door (and I've been hit with that exact scenario a few times, it's not fun). Well, you know, even so and if the worst happens, I've been in worse spots before and have gotten back on my feet. But it would be a shame, because working with this group twice before was great and I thought for sure it would be better on a permanent basis. But I also have a feeling that considering the strong reputation I've built with many other members of the department, people might look at her suspiciously from there on in if she did that.

    I've been closely tracking everything I do, recording the amount of time it takes, and putting that logbook on a OneNote file she has access to. I figured that would be a good way to justify how the day's time is being used and how long it takes me to do certain things. I'm hoping it clues her on the basis that if she overloads me, yeah, things are going to not get done until much later down the pipeline. I haven't even been using the lunch break I should be entitled to and already I've worked many hours of overtime when she was okay with my 7 to 3 schedule, which now had to be changed to 8 to 4 to suit her needs.

    She also has the habit of giving verbal instructions. Long, complicated, verbal instructions. And here I am, holding a coffee cup and not my notebook because I was only prepared to refill my coffee, not write down heavy levels of instructions of yet another thing she wants me to do. I'm going to take the approach of "hey, could you send that in an email?" That way she confirms everything in writing and no detail is left forgotten or recorded incorrectly. I'm also hoping just the process of having to put all that in an email... maybe... just maybe makes her slightly less inclined to pile it on top of the mountain of things I already have on my plate.

    I know, but I still almost melted. My work requires me to go outdoors but man, do I not enjoy it during these times because of the heat...

    Well maybe not exactly? Just look at PMD. They still survived, but it was a harsh life.

    And yeah we were stuck walking around DC today trying to find a place to park. It was awful.

    The time is upon us...

    Yeah we've been walking everywhere. Much easier. Don't wanna go too money crazy, but I can't go without spending $70 in the Pokémon Center.

    This time I got something secret too.

    Well, hopefully you at least tell us what it is later on.
