My sentiments about my first day teaching were similar to last year's. This semester, Monday is the busiest day of the week for me. I teach all morning, starting at eight a.m. I awoke at 6:15, bright-eyed, bushy-tailed and ready to seize the day. Instead, I received a pleasant surprise: my water was off. Apparently that's still going to be a thing.
No complaints, though. It's all part of the process... including the following day, Tuesday, when I was so sick I could barely get out of bed. Who has two thumbs and had to cancel classes on the first week? This guy, unfortunately.

back-to-school photos. This was
mine. Not necessarily relevant, but
I thought the post needed a photo.
Mondays, I teach English Writing III (for sophomores) from 8-10 and 10-12. From 2:30-4:30, I teach English Writing V (for Juniors). Tuesdays I teach another English Writing V from 8-10, then Reading Periodicals from 4:30-6:30. On Wednesday, I teach Western Culture from 10-12 and at 2:30-4:30, the other class of Reading Periodicals. Thursdays from 2:30-4:30, I teach my final Western Culture class.
Lastly, I've had some people ask me about my vacation blogs. They're coming. I've been busy...
