20 Years at Bond Today
4 January 2009 4 Comments
I enter just a short note that 20 years today I started work at Bond Uni. It is customary to expand on the occasion but I am not in a reflective frame of mind in this post-festive time. For the moment I simply recall the initial euphoria and community spirit when money was no object, the dark days of Bond in receivership, near-fail and the threat of moving to Robina Town Centre, the impecunious years of long hours with no reward before Bond became truly independent, and then the current expansionary period. The years have gone quickly but I am left feeling ambivalent about whether for me these years might have been better spent on other endeavours. Certainly the Gold Coast itself has been a great place to live although the population explosion is starting to take its toll on our infrastructure.
