I’ve worked in IT for my entire adult life, all six months of it. (HA!) The university I work for is at the tail end of a migration from one learning management system to another which means I’ve been spending a whole lot of quality time moving things “by hand” for faculty who aren’t comfortable doing it themselves, or for whom it’s entirely too time consuming.
I don’t mind. They’re appreciative and, let’s be honest, sometimes mind-numbing work is exactly what you need. But this morning I think I pushed it too far. (mostly because I should NOT have done this all over the span of 3 hours)
- Seven semesters worth of a class
- 4-5 discussion forums per class
- approximately 30 students per class
- scan each board and download the attached files, then upload to a shared drive
To say that I’m in pain is an understatement.
But I love this gig. I live for it actually. I’m a people-person and a problem solver. It’s a rock solid combination.
In other news, I cheated on my knitting last night even more.This is going to become a fused glass garden stake. I went to my local glass studio last night and did a class. I’ve been doing fused glass for several years now but haven’t done much of it lately. I’ll post a finished pic when it’s done.
And now a gratuitous picture of the cutest orange kitties in the world…
