Well, I know that I haven’t posted nearly as much as I had hoped I would. Truth be told, it is not for lack of time, but rather because I have absolutely nothing blog worthy! Don’t get me wrong, I really love my job. I truly feel that it is the perfect job for me, and I couldn’t be happier doing it. I just haven’t had any funny, crazy, memorable, bad, horrible, or entertaining tidbits happen since I’ve been here. I only had a handful of lectures this semester and none of the students stormed out in revolt or asked outlandish questions. Also, none of my research equipment is in place yet, so I haven’t even had a chance to get in the lab.
This is finals week, and most of my material was at the beginning of the semester so I only had a handful of questions on the final exams this week. All-in-all this has been a pretty easy semester for me. Next semester seems to be shaping up to be a different story. It looks like I may end up being solely responsible for teaching the content of my PhD field side of a course for our 3rd year students! It will be big adjustment from having just a handful of lectures this semester to being solely responsible for the content of my side of the an entire course. The beauty of it though is that the way the course is laid out, I will only be teaching on average once a week. Some weeks it will be twice, but there are some stretches where I won’t teach for a couple of weeks! I really am loving this team taught course method.
Well, that was my semester in a nut shell. I hope that everyone is enjoying their semester coming to a close…it it hasn’t already!
