At the moment I am really enjoying working with students of all types as they design research projects, collect data, analyse it and present.
It's an honour. And sitting with them as they take ownership of the research process is great time. In a classroom, in a pub, in the hallway. Always good.
And there's the other stuff. Admin, counselling, following up, travelling.
And the only time that seems too short is the time I get to spend across a table with the students who are truly in charge of their own stuff..
"We do so many shows in a row
And these towns all look the same
We just pass the time in our hotel rooms
And wander 'round backstage
Till those lights come up and we hear that crowd
And we remember why we came"
And it reminds me of this song:
