We move into the new place in a few days and apparently it takes 2 weeks to flick a switch and give us the internet. I might not be here every day.
Actually, I’m setting you a few and you can do them all, or just one. Or none, because it’s a bit hard to be bossy over the internet.
1. Go to a park on your lunch break – yes, actually leave your desk – and sit and do nothing. Just watch people, look at the sky, look at the ants. No reading, no music.
2. Introduce yourself to the oldest person in your street/apartment block and find out something interesting about them. (This one is inspired by my neighbour, who I just discovered used to work at the Glomesh factory.)
3. At the end of each work day, draw a stick figure of yourself that sums up your day, and then leave the office.
4. Make a decision for me about which reference software to use – Nvivo or Zotero? There has to be something better than Endnote.
Apart from the last one – which is clearly just me being lazy and not wanting to make a decision – I’m interested in how it made you feel. If you could post your stick figures here, that would be awesome. Here’s my first one:
(My hand-drawn stick figures are MUCH better than my mouse-drawn ones. Honest. I just don’t have a scanner nearby.)
