another week passes along...

can't get through 'em fast enough, when it comes to waiting for spring. :)
I'm getting my week over with well enough. classes at school going as planned, and it's the lesson plans that has everything to do with it.. seriously plan your goals, instruction, activities, always something extra in case there is time, and you're good to go, roll into class read what you had planned and go! ha also of course I had my second night class last night, and so far I think it's going to be a pretty good group. The whole entire different dynamic of having a back and forth conversation and teaching higher ed is extremely refreshing, and even though it's once a week, I'll take it! I was sort of thinking on my home last night how it's like having a party and everyone is there ready to participate in each and every activity and have some fun. ha I look forward to teaching them how to write MY WAY! no just kidding, how to write directly, clearly, and organized using MLA blah blah blah. are you asleep yet?
I also finally called down to OU today and got numbers of 2 professors to speak with down there about which direction to go for a doctorate. very exciting, better start saving my $$. I have to actually consult with them and see what my options would even be and what I'd have to invest etc..
I realize I may never get the exact job I want at my alma mater but it's bound to get me into some sort of career in higher ed which is definitely what I'd like to be doing in the next ten years.
no I don't see myself coming out anytime soon, I think someone asked that. I don't even know what that would mean coming out anyway, I don't see myself suddenly looking for anyone to meet any more than I am doing now if that makes sense.
ok back from gym, back and shoulders day today, I'm getting back slowly but surely into a sort of routine come on muscle memory let's go!

Dan, if you could come out without implications, would you? I think that is the key. If you would and leave the chains behind would that change your life?? Just a "what if" question.. Enjoy your blog.

I am also curious about which direction for a doctorate. If you want to go into higher ed, you need to be open about relocating almost anywhere, or possibly adjuct hell. Hard to break out of that for some reason.
