July 1st and July 2nd

Not a catchy title, huh?  I was stumped on this post as it’s been three solid days of roll-up-your-sleeves work where we are bypassing heading out for lunch to have more time to arrange conference call interviews, brainstorm, and make charts.  Even the evenings have been low-key with more work and less socializing. We start turning in final deliverables in just 5 days with final presentations a week from today.  Yikes!

Team 2 — Wouter, Savi, Sanjay and Valentina — had an important workshop on Wednesday to bring together provincial government and University reps to determine the theme of the new CoLab that will be installed here at North West University in Mafikeng.  A CoLab is short for “Collaborative Laboratory” that is like a Center of Excellence.

In non-work news, we had a good laugh on our fashion the past few days. Paola and I made the unfortunate mistake of showing up in the most clashing patterns and colors on quite busy dresses on Tuesday.  We were called airline hostesses.  Without conferring with each other, we both decided that we needed to tone it down for Wednesday and ended up in identical, very boring, very plain, black-n-white outfits on Wednesday.  I guess Aruna was clued into the crazy clashing on Tuesday as she showed up in black-n-white, too. It’s back to crazy patterns and colors for tomorrow 🙂  #IBMCSC
