We had a meeting today. All meetings are fairly predictable, really. If I had a company, my meetings would be hella fun.
Getting back to the topic, though. We have a new…someone here. A director, I think? She is a very strong personality. She’s direct, she talks quickly, and she’s often asking her next question while you’re still answering her previous one.
You’d think such a person would be intimidating.
But I found myself engaged by her, and more willing to speak up than in any meeting previous, where all participants were polite and docile and careful. See what a warm and outspoken person can do? And it made me think that maybe I’m stronger than I thought. I have things to say.
I know I’m absolutely wasted here. I’m very intelligent, I’m very creative, and I’m driven to change the world and make a name for myself. Here in this beige cubicle, under these fluorescent lights, I am intellectually and creatively starved. I can make no name for myself; I can’t do anything that will ever matter to me.
It’s about time I get out of here and put my plan into motion.
