- The parking sticker (that I can get before class next Wednesday)
- The student ID (see above)
- The refreshments and cute little folder full of pens and miscellaneous handouts
Not worth 120 miles, my friends. None of it.
Sooo, bright and early Saturday morning I'll be headed over for an all-day class that will kick off my online class for the semester. I have no idea what future librarians do all day for a class. We'll find out come Saturday. I'll be sure to keep you posted.
In the meantime, I've lost my damn mind. My former boss called. The one that heads the English department at the junior college I taught for here in TX before I moved to NC. I spoke with them earlier in the summer about teaching a class or two, but the online teaching deal with the NC colleges was so much better I turned them down. This morning when she called, she was in a panic trying to fill an instructor position for a class that starts on Monday.
She reeled me in with the literature.
To this point I've not been scheduled to teach any lit classes for this fall semester, and that kills my soul a little. SO, now I'm teaching a writing/lit survey. I get to choose what I want. I can focus on short stories, poetry, drama, all of the above. Whatever I want. And that makes me positively drooly. I took it, and it might be the final nail in my fur-lined coffin, but this ship is going down happy.
Watch the next post for news on my reading flurry! Hurrah!
