February 10th, 2020 – 502

Keeping this one short too today, as this is going to be a busy day and I want to make sure my work-house is in order. That is what I use Monday as a day for and I find it a lot easier to keep in control of my world if I define what needs what now. It lets me argue my corner if I get asked to do a large task by a less than reasonable deadline, though that is rare. I cannot remember the last time I had to do that, maybe when migrating the VLE in the last term of the 18/19 academic year.

The office is a lot more noisy today than normal. I am not the ‘open office’s biggest fan. In fact I would love nothing more than to see it dismantled, as it creates so many problems in this workplace alone. It’s a shame that the real reason we have open offices is ‘walls are expensive’. Still, what can you do. I don’t like listening to things too loud but I will do it if I need to. It’s annoying that it is slowing down my workflow. Even writing this post is tough. But hey, plenty of writers work under much worse circumstances, and I managed to hit target before the work day began.
