See, I am actually working all week.

Two new words…

I am an inveterate neologist…

Here are two…

Not sure if I invented this one or am recycling.

administrivia– trivial tasks associated with coordinating or administrating work; also, can be obscure regulations or rules of administrative bureaucracies.

The administrivia soaked up an hour of time.

procrastiduction/procrastivity/procastiduce: When you avoid doing the most important work (writing) by doing other work (emails to students, grading, upgrading CV).

Yes, well, I did not finish my book. But I wasn’t surfing facebook, I was procrastiducing.

About Jordi

I am an assistant professor in the Management School at Bucknell University. I specialize in organization theory, social networks, and studying the network society. I have three children, including twins. They love bouncing on the couch, legos, music, and my waffles. My wife teaches English at the same university. I am interested in most things, but these days, networks, social entrepreneurs, the environment, innovation, and virtual worlds. Finding Hidden Abodes and Shaking Iron Cages since 1972
