whew yesterday was a whorlwind of events...was in the pool at 530 swimming laps, out and shaved and dressed by just after 6 am. breakfast etc and arriving at work 7:10, busy day teaching and keeping the kids in control etc teaching and then classic dan move, I left my COMP II class papers on the kitchen table.. ugh. so after school I drive back home to get the papaers, then back across town to the college. oh man, made some copies, got some activities planned for class. plus the calendar syllabus for my new class, went to class. taught right up to 8pm and came back home... had to unwind before going to bed so I was on the computie and blogging some up until 930pm then crash! my college class this year is full of talkative sharp people. going to be an interesting class I can already tell , and most seem pretty motivated which means they could be sticking it out to the end. that means lots of papers to grade, ha but surely not all 26 by the end of class. we shall see. no class next Monday thats for sure, so I will have a weekend getaway to ARkansas. I have a good mix of international kids in my class as well as younger and older guys and gals etc.. no complete hotties but lots of big tall guys in that class I'll tell ya what. mostly brainy type girls in there, one won't stop talking so I'll have to mediate a lot of class discussion to not let her overtake all the class discussions. ha also there is a very motivated Vietnamese high school guy in my class. he is really impressive and already joined into the class discussions. will be a good semester I'm thinking if I can just keep up with the book and sound like I know what I'm talking about. :)
I got my Austin City Limits tickets in the mail! so any readers in Austin going to be at ACL? I accidentally bought Fleet Fox tickets in Tulsa the same weekend, yikes, but a few friends already said they'd buy 'em off of me. thank goodness. I got to save all the cash I can now just for gas down to Austin and back. UGH all this dad gum heat. I did not get up early for gym today at all, HAD to sleep in after yesterday. home from work now and getting ready to head up to the gym. we are out of school Friday for parent conferences and progress reports. definitely feeling the 4 days work week , next week also, awesome.
