academicsuk.myfreeforum.org Forum Index academicsuk.myfreeforum.org
A forum for UK academics to chat anonymously about research, teaching and all the other things that make life difficult. I was thinking of calling this forum "Herding Cats" because that's what managing academics is supposed to be like.

My dad was an academic and he used to work over all the holidays. I am determined I am not going to do this, but I have colleagues in my department who seem to work even on Christmas Day.

I have another colleague in a different department who says she takes a "comfort article" on holiday with her. I think that's about my speed - pretending I might do some work, but nothing huge!

I don't 'work' outside of (longish) working hours. But it's the thinking I can't get away from!
