first day of class

enter to learn
my first day went well. i like that its on a friday too, so i can have a two-day-breather before really getting into things.

this semester i teach 3 written composition II classes and a poetry class. i was happy to see a lot of familiar faces in my comp classes--i think that out of all my comp students, about 75% are ones i had last semester in comp 1. we just did syllabus review and a fun get-to-know you activity today. monday: Grammar review, and "what is good writing."

i had double the amount of students i expected in poetry--5! a much better number to work with. i can't wait to really get started with that class--i have so much to tell them, its hard not to just tell them all at once! monday we are conquering The Line--it will be a big lesson--then onto our first workshop.

there were a few first day hiccups--mainly that out of the four classes i taught, Three had their classrooms changed this morning, one of which i wasn't notified of so i had to track down my class and herd them to our new classroom.

i also found that i have no time to eat during the day again this semester. i get all woozy if i don't eat so i've got to figure out some time to snack on something at some point. otherwise i crash. like today.

i got home, played with zu for an hour or so, had some leftover zucchini fries (shared with zu of course). zu went down for her nap and i woke up on the loveseat in some awkward, fell-asleep-where-i-sat position, groggily asking bryan "what time is it? have i been asleep?"

he's making dinner tonight (yay!yay!yay!) breakfast burritos, yum. i'm planning on trying to draft a poem, but we'll see. friends are coming over for bbq (memphis-style, you know it) and a baby-play-date tomorrow so i really should clean the house...although, as brenda ueland urges, perhaps i will neglect my housework for writing instead.
