...and while eventful, most of it is unbloggable. I am learning a lot (being a representative in the Faculty Senate is eye opening), and stressing occasionally. My classes are OK. I have 3 preps, but not too many students in each class. I am teaching two different upper division lit classes, and that's pretty fun.
In one of them, I managed to get my students so engaged in a detective novel that one of them actually tattooed a quote from it on her body!!! She explained me how meaningful it was, and how it had put into words certain struggles she had been having this year. I am proud (and I hope her parents don't complain).
So here I am, still alive and with tenure.
