So I'm like a week behind, but for sort of good reasons. TUESDAY: Individual appointments, grading, first year team meeting, took Child to dance. WEDNESDAY: ENG 1101 oral presentations Day 1, individual appointments...and then my day blew up. Received information about a student in crisis which required me to take action, in the form of referring it to Counseling. Oh, and also taught my 20th C Brit Lit class. Office hours. Talked with Counseling. Took Child to dance. Worked out and read Marie Lu's Champion on the treadmill., but only got to do 4 miles, as they were going to do costume fittings back at the studio...and then they didn't let parents in to talk about alterations after all, but said they would send an e-mail. Talked with Counseling again. THURSDAY: Graded. (Over)packed. Talked with my Dad about plans for Thanksgiving week. Worked out. Boring meeting with assessment guru. Meeting with Academic Planning Committee. And a chat with an investigator from Campus Safety. A little more last minute packing, then off to Columbus for OSB! FRIDAY: Watching an amazing amount of Am Latin. Dinner at North Market (Fidous Express). Wrote in diary. Evening session featuring Am Latin final, Pro Rhythm, Pro Standard. SATURDAY: Worked out. Graded papers. Received elaborate e-mail from Child's dance studio about costume pieces we need to buy and alterations we need to make in the next 2 weeks. Tried on probably 15 dresses at the Dore booth. I came reasonably close to buying one, but decided I needed to sleep on it. Dinner at North Market (Flavors of India). Evening session featuring Am Standard final, Pro Smooth, Pro Latin. SUNDAY: Woke up really unfortunately early and could not fall back to sleep. Graded papers. Packed. Flew home. Bumpy landing left me feeling sick. Drove home and took a nap. In a little bit of a funk, emotionally, both about the stuff which preceded OSB and about one thing that happened there. Graded some more. MONDAY: ENG 1101 oral reports. GLC class on best practices for oral reports, which they will do next week. Long talk with peer mentor. FB post by Child's dance studio about things we need to buy for holiday parade on SATURDAY. Um...lead time could be better here. Also, they seem to assume that asking you to get something at Walmart is perfectly reasonable. I asked if another retail establishment would be acceptable, and they said they wanted everyone's to be the same. Ugh. Sometimes I feel like I live on a different planet than the rest of my community. 20th Brit Lit. Grading. Took Child to dance. Put Child to bed and to bed on the early side.
