Something I thought about:

  • Another week of intense logistics along with the start of class! Almost my entire focus was on course management, prep, and teaching.

Something I did:

  • Set first-year survey course sections.
  • Answer a lot of questions.
  • Teach the first session of creative writing — which had more students than expected!

Something I read:

  • We started to read Talking to Dragons by Patricia C. Wrede at bedtime as a family, and it’s been very silly and fun. I loved this book when I was a kid, and it’s been great to see my child reacting to the story. Also it’s a nice daily break with all of us.
