If she could make you deathly ill, that would almost be a worth while super power.
June is going to be a bad month.
Has anyone ever done work knowing that you're not doing what you think is right or the best but no one actually cares enough to listen to you telling them this and won't recognize this until it's too late? It feels like a bad dream but it's real and you can't really do anything about it. At least that's what it feels like.
It's not even a learning experience other than 'never get involved with people like this again'. They want me to stay. I cannot stay. The only solution here is to go back in time.
No, it isn't breaking the law. It is an unprecedented level of ineptitude. And I feel bad about it (selfishly, partly because it reflects on me although I think most people that could see would agree that this isn't my fault).
You can have a conversation and literally what I just said is forgotten within 5 seconds. And it's difficult because I have no industry knowledge to be able to fix certain things easily.
I don't understand how you can have zero tolerance for making tools outside of a tiny bit of tolerance but have the worst data management practices in the world. It makes no sense to me. "I know you're not OK with this, but I am". No, you aren't. You are just not thinking. I need you to think because I need help with this. But nothing.
I have learned nothing from the actual company I work for. I call other companies and half the time THEY don't know what I am talking about. It's hard to keep caring about a project that no one else cares about and wasn't an idea you were championing. I didn't put out the job posting up and hire myself.
If that's what real life is like, I want out. It's not even a question of being overwhelmed. I am getting close to just not caring and it bugs me. Everyone else says "yay it's Friday". I don't see it that way.
I really don't think it's perfectionism. I've resigned myself to the fact that it can't be great, but I'm not going to give up on "OK". I am not going to attach my name to something I deem to be substandard. And it wouldn't have to be that way if there was a little more caring from management.

I mixed a bunch of tracks, which I am admittedly not fantastic at to begin with, only to find that my left speaker was outputting at a lower volume than my right. not knowing this, I compensated by making all my tracks sound like doo doo on normal speakers, accidentally.
