Ah…the life of an academic! That’s my latest excuse for not blogging so far this week. I’ve spent days, evenings, wee hours this week stuffing a 3-ring binder with evidence that I hope will convince several levels of committees that they should recommend my promotion to full professor. Once the Dean’s office finds all the student evaluations I seem to be missing, I may have to transfer everything to a thicker binder.
You might be interested in knowing that one of the sample student comments I included in my dossier was the remark about my “wicked kung-fu skills.” I remember another remark about my being a “cool ninja nun” from some time ago… I think these are compliments??
Now, I must turn my attention to the backlog of course prep and grading that has been on the back burner. My goal is to get caught up tomorrow and the weekend while still taking some time to rest. (I was up until 4 am last night – or should I say this morning?)
Anyway, I hope to get a more substantial blog post done, if only I have some time to reflect without having to forgo bathroom breaks…
Good night, all!
