Hank Aaron

Entry 044 for Wednesday May 27, 2020

I used to play baseball when I was young. This would be the late 70s through the early 80s. I played second base and usually batted second in the order. I was okay but definitely not great. Back then 44 meant Reggie Jackson for me. A more famous 44 would be the great Hank Aaron and that is the inspiration for the featured image of this post.

The core questions:

Credit goes to Ben and readers of his blog for these “Four Questions” and the five stretch questions.

  1. What did you do today? Zooming with zoom meetings from 9am-1:30pm with students (Arturo, Alex, Alberto, Francisco and Iván) and colleagues about two separate webinars I will give that are coming soon (with Ana Raquel and Rubí); a meetup (in Zoom) with various international faculty at our Tec de Monterrey system; #educoffee with Christa (whom I just met in that international faculty session); class with my #Semana18 group; I missed a meeting with student Rosario (sorry).
  2. What did you enjoy? That meeting with faculty from around our institution was nice. I only knew one (Brian), so it was nice to see new faces. Some had arrived recently and others 20+ years like myself. I wish the Tec did more of this support work for incoming foreign faculty.
  3. What did you find difficult? This was a long day. I was exhausted. I wanted to give some feedback on assignments in the evening but I completely ran out of steam.
  4. What has changed? My full workdays are spent mostly on my desktop workstation and sometimes on the laptop to give my youngest time on this machine. In general I spend a lot of time on computers but many activities (meetings for work and social meetings) are not through this webcam and camera. It really is tiring.
