I voted it, Robert. Your writing is a real consolation. The longer entries, I should note, are not as easy to glance over and make a quick comment about, which is a good thing.
Hey, Adam, Sarah and I both really enjoyed your list of 25 personal things. As for teaching, don't let your part-time status undermine your determination to ignite your students' curiosity. It's natural to feel pissed off. Nothing at all wrong with that. Don't give more to your teaching than you can. Nothing wrong with that either. Find your center. Maintain your equanimity. Protect and preserve your sanity and inner peace. But when you teach and read and mark papers, get hold of their souls and, with empathy, shake them. Anything less will infect and weaken your own self-esteem. I'm proud of you! I love you.
Thanks much, Mister Skank. You're right; my relationship with the students hasn't changed.
Somehow I lucked out this quarter -- not a single English 101, our intensive comp class. I do have two remedial classes, but only five total students! I do short answer exams and short papers in the lit and film classes. I just got some important gossip information for a coworker -- the new administrator guy is limiting the adjunct faculties' courses to four (I have five now). Time to jump ship, if I can.
You were clairvoyant when I asked, "What can an administrator really do?"
"Well, they can fire you!" you said.
