–Facebook status update, 10pm last night.
Here’s the sad part. These accomplishments consisted of:
- an excellent and productive meeting with students to get feedback on issue x
- getting permission to put on a workshop related to issue x
- getting permission to set up a program related to issue x
- getting permission to organize a course related to issue x
So, nothing was actually produced or done, yet it felt like a good day’s work.
The terrible part is—getting permissions was a big accomplishment. For months, I’ve been trying to get my chair to agree to the workshop, and having the go-ahead to get things done is a huge first step.
I guess that’s how admin works.
