I'm doing a little dance in my cubicle and item number one will tell you why.
Keeping this intro short today because my brain is 100% zapped.
Here's what I've been working on.
Faculty Tenure Portfolio: Once a year, we have to submit a portfolio with a long narrative and evidence of all the work we've done the past year. Everyone hates it. It's long and tedious and overly complicated. I've found ways to make it easier, but drafting the narrative takes hours and gathering all the files of my evidence takes even longer. Then one has to wrestle Tk20 which is not a nice system. The file size limits are so small that I can't really do anything. So, I dump everything into our institutional OneDrive and say, "Go there!" I'm glad to be done with this for the year.
Research Assignment Design: We're presenting a poster at the ACRL Conference next week. Today, we wrapped up our final edits of the design and are working on getting it printed. We also found out our proposal to talk about this at TILC was accepted. We're going to deal with that after ACRL.
"Ski" Trip Planning: After a three year, COVID-induced hiatus, our friend "ski" trip is back this year! (Most of us don't really "ski" but do apres-ski things in the house we rent together.) The friend who organizes all of this puts us into pods and I've got my usual breakfast pod. I found recipes, made shopping lists, and will be hitting the stores tomorrow. My parents are coming Friday to take care of kiddo whilst I enjoy the weekend. (Sadly, the husband likely can't join because he got COVID. Booo.) I'm prepping everything they need to know and getting kiddo ready for her first weekend without her parents around. While I am gutted that the hubby can't join, I am looking forward to 3 nights away after 10+ days of solo parenting.
