I decided to do my 5-year service award, which meant my boss and I had to write statements for the CEO to read in chapel. We made it through the ordeal, and it turned out well. In my comments I shouted out the lunchtime board game group for getting me to connect with people outside my department.
I picked up my glasses on Monday, and since then I’ve even put them on a few times to get used to them. I feel like I’m looking through some kind of strange microscope, but it’s nice to be able to see tree branches clearly again after 15 years.
I posted another section of my analysis essay. It’s going more slowly than I’d hoped.
One reason it’s going slowly is that I decided I needed a systems theory book. The field of systems theory is, a little ironically, a mess. So a lot of last week’s project time went into researching that. I settled on Systems Thinking, Systems Practice, a detailed and somewhat up-to-date overview with application methods by a prominent systems researcher, Peter Checkland.
My next book hunt will be on design thinking.
Great choice on the frames!
Thanks! The eye doctor basically picked them. He narrowed the options down to two, and I chose that over the more hipster one.
