Hello everyone, so I see that it has been almost over a month since I last posted. My apologies for not posting more frequently and also for having to cut this entry short.
Well, plenty has happened in the last month or so, but a lot of what happened has come and gone in a whirlwind blur since it has been so busy recently. I find myself darting out emails while at the same time uploading new conferences onto the website one after another. I have also been kept busy with making newsletters and sorting out last minute details of journal papers in a rush to get Issue 4 of Control and Intelligent Systems published. On top of all that, the conferences taking place in Cambridge, USA, and Marina del Rey, USA, are approaching very quickly which means helping the conference planners compile conference folders and proofing, proofing, proofing.
Phew, October has been a busy month.
There have been non-work related office events that happened as well. We held a surprise baby shower for my co-worker who is expected to have a beautiful baby girl at the beginning of next year. There have been suggestions of baby names thrown throughout the office, but nothing has been made official yet ;). Furthermore, there has been quite a bit of cake and ice cream passed around due to many birthday celebrations. Also, one of my closest co-workers has left IASTED in order to pursue studies (and adventures) abroad. I want to wish her the best of luck in everything she does!
Workplace Survival 101 Tip: Do not become overwhelmed by work. Always, always remember to take a breather and remind yourself that no matter what, it is NOT the end of the world.
Well, that is about it. For all those celebrating Halloween next Sunday: HAPPY HALLOWEEN!
