Friday, December 10
For the first time in as long as I can remember, I get up at 7:30, have breakfast, and leave for work, hoping I have not left it too late. Today I have accepted a position as a judge for the final session of the Innovations course.
I meet Tomas to discover that the other judges have not turned up (yet). More sandwiches and coffee for me then.
I spend the entire morning listening to student groups pitch their solution to a problem of their own choosing somewhere in the area of sustainability. Most of them take the form of apps.
By lunch time Peter an alumnus who I do not know, but who now runs a Time Travel company with interests in sustainability and escape rooms, has arrived and we go for a lunch downstairs. My first Arcada lunch of the academic year takes the form of vegan ratatouille accompanied by two glasses of piima.
On the way out of the building I pause to take a photograph of the corridor, once a staple of many a photographic week.
