The week that was!
1) One Good Thing: Had a nice annual performance review, lots of praise from the boss. Performance reviews mean next-to-nothing at most places, and even less at ours given we have to redo them in January anyway because of our restructure-by-any-other-name, but it was nice to hear that people think I’m doing a good job.
2) One Bad Thing: I got the date wrong for my students to submit their assignments (typo-wrong – and discovered early so it’s not a big drama.) But not only are they now of the opinion that I’m a brainless twit, they now also have an extra 2 day extension to make up for the typo, which gives me less time to mark their work and I’m going to use up all my weekend time now 😦
3) One Thing I Learned: far too much about pre-eclampsia. Now I am stressed out about it, since I have pretty rubbish blood-pressure to begin with and run a pretty high risk of it getting worse. None of which helps the blood pressure. Vicious cycle!
