I had the most spectacularly awful performance review of my entire career yesterday. My boss didn't provide one word of constructive criticism. Instead, she wrote an entire single-spaced page of commentary about how I was unable to think critically, solve problems and be assertive enough to get anything done. I was blind-sided by this which shouldn't happen in a performance review. She never mentioned these issues to me before.
Moreover, not one of the other attorneys with whom I work took the time out of their busy schedules to mention all the times I have helped them out with one crisis or another. What a let down!
In short, I'm feeling very small and unhappy today. I'm angry and sad. But I'm not going to let this get the better of me. I'm wearing purple for courage today. This outfit would have a happiness factor of 100% if the pants were actually PPL, but I'm settling for 95% happiness.
Sorry about all the above. It's hard to get past something like that in one short day!
