So I think everything broke today? I don't know, I am not getting responses from people and I really needed them. I also have been in ratio of programming all week and have another week to go due to my injured staff. My supervisor knows this and she is one person who hasn't responded a lot.
The major stressor is that I have a scholarship application due for our 18 summer sites to do a book program. We do it every year and I have talked it up, sent emails, sent reminder emails and then today started calling people for the information I need. I need to get this done tonight and still have several sites that have not answered. Our department has a huge summer push and deadlines, which meant that all our field trip and bus requests were due a good month before this program was ready to announce. Now everyone is crazy into finishing summer, we are all generally being yelled at, and I can't get anyone to answer me about this program. I also don't know if we can add busses for the field trip or anything at this late date.
My options are to just finish the application tonight with guessing some information and sign up almost no one for the field trip or special events, or wait until Monday and contact the organizers to tell them what is happening so I can get answers from these people. I truly don't know which way to do this, and I am so tired I had to go sleep in my car in the middle of the day. I am leaning towards propping myself up and just doing it in case the google form closes.
So NOW If I ever got a supervisor job I think I would be just like the ones I hate, honestly this is total BS that I am not getting responses. I am barely getting answers from the supervisors. Maybe it is because I don't really have any authority, I asked this year if I could make it optional so I could focus on the sites who love the program. We have our schools organized into 3 groupings and I will tell you that I am in the best of the 3 groups. We answer emails, phone calls, everything.
