Blue Skies

Yeah, it's still coldish today, but we have lovely blue skies. That always lifts the spirits.

My new class started last night and I have 30 students. Thirty may not sound like a lot, but that class lasts 4 1/2 hours. I came home, took two ibuprofen and went to bed. But I avoided spending anything at the vending machine there, which is a triumph of sorts.

I'm giving myself 1.5 points for throwing out more of DH's elderly spices and recycling the jars. I did throw the ancient cardamom pods on the "compost heap." And listed a bunch of things on Craigslist and Amazon, so hoping to reap some nice rewards there.

I hope to get out for a walk under these sunny skies!

    30 students and 4.5 hours *does* sound like a lot! I never taught a class that went for more than 3 hours, and at the small colleges I taught at, relatively few classes (only intro) ever had as many as 30--most classes beyond intro capped at 25. One term that I was adjuncting, I taught a one-evening-per-week class that had 42 and the difference from 30 to 42 was huge. Teaching 42 was actually much more similar to teaching 120 (the biggest class I ever had, back when I was at the research U) than it was to teaching 30.

    Good luck with the new semester and enjoy the sun while it lasts!
