Following on from yesterday, here is what my work day looks like (typically Tuesday to Friday). It won’t be the most exciting, but people who do data entry will understand!
6:10 My alarm goes off, I lay in bed for twenty minutes.
6:25 My partner brings me a cup of tea (English Breakfast with soy milk) and a toasted bagel.
6:35 I scoff my breakfast, get dressed and get ready for the day.
7:00 We commute to Canterbury.
7:50 I arrive to my university campus, I try to convince myself to have a walk (if I have outstanding work I do skip this. But I am trying not to in the future).
8:00 Go to my office, open up and start working (thirty minutes for emails, twenty minutes for reports and ten-twenty minutes for investigation).
9:00 My line manager visits me and we discuss any outstanding issues and ideas, we also talk about upcoming meetings.
9:20 More investigation if necessary, and email chasers.
10:00 Break (I don’t always leave me desk, but I make an effort to do something not involving data).
10:10 Create web pages or files in our content management systems or review/update the pages.
13:00 Return to work and focus on outstanding projects and/or go to meetings. More data entry and creating pages/files.
17:00 Technically I have finished work but my partner doesn’t give me a lift until 18:00 so I browse my university intranet, and read HE-related blogs or news/articles involving my research interests.
18:00 Start the commute home (varies depending on traffic).
19:00 Dinner time.
20:00 Same as yesterday.
