Six hours of teaching in a day

It sounded like a good idea at the time. Double up my teaching in winter quarter. No formal classes in spring to allow for some fieldwork. It also sounded like a good idea at the time to schedule the classes for the same day. One undergrad, 2 hours, 2/week. One grad, 4 hours 1/week. Which equals six hours of classroom teaching on Tuesdays.

Got home around 10:30 pm, houseguest was there watching The Bachelor on her computer. Sucked into the drama while I wanted for teaching adrenalin to drain from my veins.

Fell asleep before I had time to blog.

Best thing about today (which is really yesterday): the undergrad class is that under-the-radar interdisciplinary course I mentioned in previous post. First meeting today. Students sat silent and confused at start of class. Why are there strangers from another department sitting next to me?? After a couple hours of conversations: laughter and connections.

The best part wasn't watching "the bachelor?"
