Not a feeling you’d expect at the end of a day off, right?
One of the PhD students I co-supervise will harvest her final experiment this weekend. Timing would not have it any other way. I’m generally not a big advocate for working weekends. Therefore, I offered a helping hand, so we could share the pain (and joy – finishing an experiment is a joyful thing too). To compensate, I took today off. It’s my wife’s birthday. We thought it would be a nice opportunity to enjoy a day together as a family.
Being the dumbass that I am, I offered to sit in with an important meeting with colleagues for half an hour early this morning.
We are at the end of the winter semester, with exams are coming up next week. We have been at last-minute notice told to ‘go online’. Online exams are new to us all, and we’re figuring it out as we speak. I found it important to be there at that meeting.
All morning I have been trying to find settings in Moodle…
The afternoon I spent outdoors, but somewhat distracted.
Note to self: if you take a day off, take a day off!
