Back when I thought I’d have spare time every week this year to dedicate to the party (ho ho, the naivety of youth etc, I’m much older now) I thought it might be nice to set up a Slack (I know some of you might be glad this never happened…;-)).
But one of the things I’d really like to kick up a gear this time round is how well we all get to know each other.
Every year before this, Catrin and I have left feeling frustrated that we didn’t get to meet everyone… and this year, at somewhere near 120 learners/partners, there’s more chance of that than ever before - but we ALSO have more time than ever before (that was a large part of the original idea of making it two nights).
All the events on Saturday, as well as the gig and the evening do, are going to give us lots of chances to meet you all…
But I’m thinking it will really help with that process if you pop in here and say hello, and if we don’t know you very well, tell us a little bit about your learning journey and your background, so that we can get a head start on getting to know you before the weekend…
[Oh, and if you’re one of the 16 people who hasn’t got around to paying the balance just yet, please please get that ticked off - it would be really lovely if I didn’t have to compare email lists and send a new set out on Monday… ]
So, how about: how far have you got with the course, where do you live, and one interesting or unusual thing about you?
I’ll start. I’ve finished the course (although I’ve promised a few spare L3+ sessions), I live between Carmel and Rhosgadfan looking down on Caernarfon, and I used to be able to do a four row Rubik’s Cube!
Oh, and a picture would be extra helpful:
