Last Day of Holidays #152

Image source: Language and the City.
Suddenly the summer break is over, I am back to work tomorrow. One of the things academics are blessed with is quite long summer holidays. This is of course because we work a lot harder than everybody else and we deserve longer holidays than administration and support staff in the College. Not!

I have had a really good break and feel ready to go back to work, even though I don't anticipate a busy August ahead. Thankfully I have very few students doing repeat exams, so grading will be quick. I do however have a lot of Data Analytics projects to grade before the end of the month - very interesting stuff to look forward to.

During the summer I wondered if I could keep up the daily blog posts, but I managed to do this. In Wexford I had to "suffer" poor broadband speeds, but managed to juggle Vodafone (good) and Virgin (shite) networks. After today there are just 151 posts left to do and I am beginning to get confidence that I can go the distance. Hopefully it will be back to educational matters over the next few weeks.
