I FINALLY DID IT. I told my boss I
will not WILL resign as Senior Instructor at the end of this term. It’s something that’s been plaguing my mind for awhile but it’s settled now. I explained that when I signed on, I gave myself 6 months to scope everything out and see if I wanted to keep going from there. Unfortunately, it is 6 months later and things have been on a downward spiral as of late. I work my ass off to keep shit in order but the lack of care and attention from the people around me is just RUDE. And if they don’t pay attention, they fuck up. And when they fuck up, I’m the one who has to clean up the mess. I mean you’re entitled to a fuck-up once in awhile… but damn, people were cashing in on the fuck-ups this past term. Also, how you react when you are told you fucked up also makes a BIG difference. It’s mainly the attitude of the select few superstars that got to me.
I just don’t want to deal with bitchassness anymore. And with the impending arriving of most reputable superstar of all… I’M OUT! I know I’m being really prejudiced but with testimonials from 5+ really great instructors, what am I supposed to believe? Add that with my knowledge of April’s standards and yeaaaaaaaa…. NOT DEALING WITH IT. I’m so pissed that they’re still going through the hire despite all the warnings. Well then, THEY CAN DEAL WITH THE MESS.
I want some time off to do nothing. I want to just teach. I’d rather deal with 2 extra classes of bratty assholes than deal with bratty people older than me who are also assholes. So this summer, I’m going back to just teaching. I will most likely have a full class load. No one will bother me (they better not). I will not deal with last minute fuck-ups. When someone asks me a question, I will give them my trademark smirk and shrug my shoulders.
But I need me time. I remember being this stressed once in my life. I had to work really hard to recreate a sense of peace in my life. I’m finally in a good place and now that I get paid for what I do, I will not fuck it up. I’m smart enough this time to back down and take some time off. So cheers to a relaxing summer. May the odds be EVER in my favor.
