Problem One: Video editing is time consuming and benefits from an office environment.
Problem Two: Like most adults, my friend, Robbi, works so it’s not that easy to see her.
Answer: I’ll go to Robbi’s work. And as she worked at a school, it would be a bit like when I worked at Sussex University.
Here’s the video:
I haven’t worked since April so I was a bit odd being among productive people. We started with a meeting (remarkably similar to all meetings ever) and then set about the day’s tasks.
The school is a “K 12” (primary and secondary school to UK readers) and is private. It looks like a very nice environment with decent resources. As it has been a long time since I was at school, it was interesting for me to see the differences in IT provision. It seems now that schools have to deal with networking and the black art of wifi coverage and this school in particular has a server room.
The grounds had originally been a habitat for peacocks and the school had put in effort to maintain them:
What’s more impressive is that the IT staff get a golf cart to zoom around in:
And it’s not just IT. The groundskeeper had one and I’m sure i saw some of the younger, less fit children driving around in one.
We visited a server room to collect equipment from a member of staff:
So the day progressed and I did some video editing and Robbi did some work. She does actually work hard which is not represented by these select shots:
So the day drew to a close and I left what was the nearest experience to work I had had in a long time.
