Or most students don't schedule early morning classes on Friday. Or, it's late enough in the semester that they're just skipping early morning classes if they have them.
I met with Noah for that postponed meeting from yesterday, which morphed into just getting together 15 minutes before the 9:00-10:00 with the full team of people who are involved in the project we talked about during our 15 minutes pre-meeting.
Noah brought in two dozen Krispy Kreme donuts for the full team meeting, which was basically a wrap-up meeting of a project all of us have been working on for several, several months. It was a good project in that we accomplished our goals and produced the deliverables asked of us. All that is to say, it was a reflective and celebratory kind of meeting. Yay.
My standing Friday 10:30-11:45 student e-mail meeting was a frustrating one for me. We had way more on the agenda than we could ever get to, which always frustrates me, as to me that just sets us up for failure from the get-go—at least that's how it feels to me. The other frustrating thing was that it was front-loaded with technical agenda items that ended up taking up 60 out of the 75 minutes, and were delivered and discussed so quickly that, as the minute-taker, I certainly wasn't able to keep up with. Oh well, this too shall pass. In fact it did. 15 minutes later. Now I dread doing the minutes.
My 3:00-4:00 meeting was just plain fun. Jen and I interviewed a potential candidate, who is actually someone who is in our Social Media and Technical Communication class. I think she's a good fit, and we hope to make an offer to her on Monday.
Once home, after a quick Weight Watchers Smart Ones Bistro dinner:
I was hungry and I needed some more protein in my calories left in today's allocation, so I boiled some shrimp and had that. Delicious.
After that I got back in the bed and caught up my blog from the last two days. I've been in catch-up mode the last week with my blog. I don't like it when that happens, but all I can do is catch it up when it does.
