Still Breathing

It's been a while since I updated this blog. I really can't say this was because I was busy. Well, I was, but that isn't really an excuse.

There's just too much things happening and too many things on my mind.

Stress level alert!

Between a Rock and Into the Fire

Okey, so I have my idioms all mixed up. But that is how my life at work is right now - all mixed up!

First, I am working towards a promotion. I may be way over my head with this one, though. Turns out the opening was for a more senior position than what I applied for. Although my boss did promise to short-list me, still it's a long shot but I am crossing my fingers. And I am definitely not counting my chickens until they're hatched.

Second, my fellow officers and myself are working towards letting go of one of our staff. We're burning the midnight oil going through the motions - documentation, performance reviews, etc. Still, the devil is in the details. It's about a behavior we have observed in the past but one that we all kept aside hoping it won't harm anyone - out of sight, out of mind. Boy, were we wrong! And now upper management has given the go signal to give the person the pink slip because the behavior is already hurting operations.

Third, I found out something this afternoon that may well be another monster rearing it's ugly head. Although I can't act directly on the situation, having a knowledge of the events that happened, albeit from a second-party source, and doing nothing about it may well be construed as complicity. Therein lies the rub. To squeal or not to squeal, that is the question.

Ay, caramba!
