After check-ins this morning we passed around the one-on-one check-in signup sheet and all present picked a preferred day, person, and frequency for checking in with a facilitator.
India led a workshop on LARPing, a very interesting subculture. India talked about doing a part 2 next week, and possibly setting up a LARP day just for us!
There was a little bit of confusion around Writing Lab, today’s Quiet Work Time focus. In our check-outs we realized the need for event hosts to announce it if they are canceling their event and that event hosts should be at the place/time of their event for at least five minutes to see if anyone shows up, and if not they are free to leave and go to another event.
Today we had the first Ewok Hour! Sam held Sushi Jam which was a great success. People brought sushi-stuffings to share and we all had a good time learning the ways of sushi making. Thanks for hosting, Sam! Soleil will be running next week’s Ewok Hour with a surprise card game.
A few folks had to leave early, and everyone else headed into the lounge for Leadership Class with Sue. I always take that block of time to catch up on Emails and such.
Today we spent a little extra time doing checkouts and changed the format a little. Everyone went around and described their day and what the highlights were. I think we still have a little ways to go to find the perfect question that leads to really productive self-reflection. I want to try something new next week; giving everyone binders. I think having everyone write their morning intentions down in their binder and then reflect about their day with a brief journal entry at the end of the day could be what we’re looking for. Having intentions written down keeps them from disappearing into the æther.
Don’t forget costumes on Friday!
