So far so good…
Last week, I spoke about our workloads and the changes we had to make to look after our mental health. Since then, we’ve all been focusing our efforts on looking after ourselves and each other. Working from home can be really hard; leading to feelings of isolation and being unable to shut-off in the evenings. Here are some of the things that I’ve been doing that I would recommend to others:
Cool, now what have I actually achieved this week?
Well, we’ve managed to deliver some last-minute events for the PGCE welcome week! These have taught us a lot about how we are promoting things and where the technology will fail us. But fear not! It’s now all ironed out (we think), ready for a larger audience during everyone else’s Welcome Week!
On Wednesday, I attended a really interesting meeting about the Stonewall Workplace Equality Indices – “benchmarking tool for employers to measure their progress on lesbian, gay, bi and trans inclusion in the workplace”. It’s still a fairly new project but I am excited about the ideas that were discussed, and I can’t wait to share with you all!
Other than that, everything else has been kind boring (Frank made us start at 9am on Wednesday, with a session on writing committee papers, tight innit), or mostly catching up on emails and social media messages! But it was exactly what we needed; I think!
See you next week and have the MOST WONDERFUL weekend <3
