Forward to Campus
Entry 498 for Tuesday August 24, 2021
The core questions:
- What did you do today? Received the news from Mario that my two software-engineering project groups (one HPDA, the other HPRS) are going back to campus starting next week; class with my #TC1028 group with my traditional “week 3 pep-talk” included; talked with Óscar about #TC2007B campus plans; meeting with Maribel about the translation project; meeting with Carlos about the ACM student chapter; meeting with Horacio and Memo about #TC2007B campus plans; meeting with César about the #TC2007B campus plan; FLN board meeting which I attended for about 2 minutes; picked up Andy from campus; missed a meeting with a #TC1028 student Diana; watched the first half of Hackers with some #TC2007B students.
- What did you enjoy? There were many meetings and the working with other people really was good.
- What did you find difficult? I struggle and resist the term “Back to Campus”. We are not going back to “2019 mode”, what we are building and setting up is very different and will continue changing for months and likely years to come. I’m doing my best to create the best plan for my professors and students but this will be extra time and stress on top of the large amount that we already have.
- What has changed? Charlie Watts of the Rolling Stones died today. I saw them in Winnipeg in 1994 for the Voodoo Lounge tour which was a great setlist. One of the best drummers of all time.
