I got entirely too wrapped up in some very unprofessional drama between two of my instructors yesterday. All because of one comment I made about a comment made by one of the beginning students with a completely inappropriate tone.
Granted there were already problems arising without anything I had said, but I managed to spark an even bigger problem between my instructors. I didn’t even know I had did it, but I did it.
I wound up with one of my instructors (who was quitting and her last day was yesterday), a classmate, and myself walking to get breakfast after critique. The entirety of our walking to get food, and back to the school was her talking really terribly about the other instructor. She exposed some of her mental illnesses, and details about her life that were neither hers or my business. I didn’t have any idea what to say or do. I just listened.
I had to end up leaving class because the anxiety of knowing how much tension there was between two teachers partly because of something I said was really hard to deal with. These are two instructors that I respect more or less as far as their teachings. From the sounds of the way they were acting yesterday though, I’m not sure if I would want to be in contact with either of them outside of help with design work. I couldn’t believe the lack of maturity that I witnessed.
I slept way too late this morning and I feel like a zombie. I’m trying to finish a final, but it’s not coming along very well. I’ll probably end up eating something sugary to try and wake me up, and watch Modern Family. Yesterday was stupid.
