Up and at it today bright and early and made it to the gym, the workout was a long one and you just had to slog it out for 40 minutes, it was great to be back there again after a week off and nice to see some friendly faces too.
I hot-footed it to the uni for my shower and to get ready for the day.
Today, during my lecture I had an observation from my manager just to get some feedback on my practice and also for them to see best practices to be able to share with the rest of the team, I was a little nervous about it, as much as I know that I’m good at what I do, well I should be after doing it for over 2 decades, getting external validation is scary. However, the feedback I got was great, yes a couple areas of development but overall I could not be more pleased. I do sometimes get wobbles about lecturing and often feel a little out of place in “academia” but today told me that I do belong, ok my lecturing style is pretty relaxed and informal and that’s okay.
Although I had a great day professionally, personally I am having a little wobble right now, I am hoping that I just need to sit it out and it will pass soon enough and not to dwell or give too much energy to it. Just need to focus on the good stuff.
