Today: Another Monday Morning

20 Sep

After a pretty packed week last week, I was hoping that this week would be more laid back, few jobs to do and perhaps a few over extended tea breaks…

Last week Cardiff University: School of Physics and Astronomy, held it’s 6th form conference with 6 guest speakers and a snippet of the type of things you could learn at university.Ā  I wish i had lectures like that! Far from the general lack of over done power-point slides, there wasn’t anytype of aroma of the night before, nor the sweet smell of coffee floating about the lecture theatre. The lectures were packed of demonstrations to wow and inspire an audience.

The technical staff involved in a mission like this (and trust me, only the word ‘mission’ can describe an event such as this) were either stressed to no end with the change-over of experimental pieces, or bored out of their minds waiting to lead the inspired youngsters to get fizzy drinks. I’m not sure they realised how much time and effort the technicians put in, speakers turning up a couple of days before, having not written their talks, asking for ideas on “how can i show this that and the other” my o my don’t we technicians really investgate the fact!!

But it worked. No major hiccup – if we ignore when one lecturers laptop crashed itself and the projector – and general concensus is that it was a success!!

Back on the Monday Morning wagon now, people are slowly filtering into work, trying to remain un-noticed, whilst I seem to have done 2 jobs already and written this blog.

I see another good week ahead! See everyone at tea-break. I’ll be the overly chearful one that you all WILL hear/see.
