Working Sucks, Let's Face It

Is it wrong to want to work in a positive, creative environment? In a place where creativity is fostered, ideas are brainstormed, people receive constructive criticism instead of glares of disgust? Is it wrong to want to be grateful for the opportunities presented each day or for being allowed to learn new skills, develop new talents & explore imaginations? Is it so wrong to want to be respected, not treated like a doormat, but an equal?

I'm fed up.

It does suck. And finding that perfect place to work? I'm still looking! Hang in there and remember just how talented you are.

I know it's your own company, and your company is pretty dang new - so while it is painful - it's going to take time to work out all the crap - you know? Like beating people over the head when they're being stupid. I'm assuming your partner (I think he's your partner) is the un-optimistic one. Tell him to take a hike if you have to. If it's your own company, it should reflect who you really are. And sad, pissed and grumbly about filmmaking is not the Carrie I know!

I was just thinking this the other day - the working sucks thing. It's especially hard when you would rather be spending your time enjoying Dahlia rather than dealing with someone who acts like a baby when he is a full grown adult. Sorry, making some assumptions here based on history :)

Keep in mind that while it is your own company, you are one half of the equation and can provide that type of an environment for others, but you can't change the other half. If that makes sense....
