meetings meetings meetings

When I originally made my list of posts to write about school things, "meetings meetings meetings" was at the top of the list—we have a lot of them. In fact, I have more meetings now than I did in years working with clients. Of course, most of that has to do with the fact that my boss knows how much I hate sitting in meetings and wasting time (inefficiency makes me angry), so she never made me go to any unless technical people were going to be there and she needed someone to parlez leur langue.

Anyway, we have a lot of meetings here. Or I do. Oddly, I'm not complaining. I have writing center workshops, comp instructor meetings, colloquia, grad student org meetings, meetings with profs, meeting with mentor/pals, and so on, and not a single one of them is a waste of time. One was, but the meeting was run by, shall we say, an HR-related department in the Uni. Those are never good.

So, I have a lot of meetings and they're oddly productive and (depending on who it is I'm meeting with) often intellectually stimulating and fun.

So strange. And good! But different.
