Right.  So.  Tomorrow’s my first day teaching my methods class in like… 3 years.  And I have to be there at 9.  Which is that lovely awkward time which will mean I need to leave my house an hour earlier than I should have to.  But let’s face it.  I’m not going to end up sleeping anyway.

…but on the off chance that I CAN, I should head to bed and start trying.  -.-;;;

Thank you so much for this, I think I really needed to hear it this week. ^^“ also I think I might have forgotten to say this in my pity party but yay for starting teaching!! Congrats!!

*hugs*  You’re welcome!  I’m glad I was able to help.  ^_^

And thanks!  I’M SO EXCITED.  IT’S THE DAY AFTER TOMORROW AND I HAVEN’T TAUGHT THIS CLASS IN TWO YEARS AND I HAVE SO MANY NEW IDEAS AND I’M SO EXCITED.  XD

Guess who officially has a working syllabus for the course she’s teaching this summer and just shipped it off to her boss for vetting?

That’s right!  ME!  XD

…holy cow, I look pale and tired, though.  O_o;;;  I think I’m gonna go snuggle with my cat and read.  That fixes everything.  ^_^  Hope you’ve all be well and sorry my queue’s been lacking in Les Mis today.  -.-;;;  I’ll fix that for tomorrow.

I was planning to do some writing or something tonight.  But this weather has been wreaking havoc with my head.  -.-;;;  So, instead I think I’m just going to curl up with my cat and watch a fluff movie.  Maybe do a little reading.  And hope the headache eases.  😛

I hope you’re all well!

Just ordered my textbooks for the summer session class I’m teaching.  Suddenly it seems so IMMINENT.  O_o;;; I mean… I know it’s not.  It’s not for another 2-3 months and I HAVE WAY MORE IMMINENT THINGS TO DO FIRST.

…but damn it, now I’m excited about that class and I WANT TO WRITE THE SYLLABUS and it’s going to be hard enough to get through all the shit I need to get through in the next week or two without getting distracted by other work that I legitimately have to do… BUT NOT YET.  *headdesk*

Young People Need To Stop Getting Offended: A Wealthy Professor’s Take

where are these wealthy professors though? 

They’re all at R1 universities or Ivy Leagues doing research and getting their graduate students to teach your 100 level classes.

“25-Year Old Depressed and Stressed Graduate Students Need To Stop Complaining To Me About How Their Students Are Getting Offended: A Wealthy Professor’s Take” is more like it
