And you thought being a student was hard...

Before my time as a Communication professor at Ivy Tech, I spent many years doing corporate and organizational training. When I decided to become an instructor, I thought it couldn't be much different from what I did for companies. Boy, I couldn't be more wrong! Although I'd never tell my students, I learn more from them than they will ever learn from me!

Why Isn't Napping 101 Offered?

I can't believe the Fall semester is here. I just got done complaining about Summer session, which was the semester from hell, I must say. I haven't had time to recover! I'm not ready! We have new textbooks, so I need new lecture notes! I want to teach Napping 101!

Okay, the beginning of semester whine is out of my system. Seriously, though, summer semester did me in, and with such a short break (10 days!) between semesters, I just don't feel ready. It didn't help that my plague rat, I mean, oldest son, brought home a stomach bug the day before classes started. I at least made it until Monday night, and as I have Tuesdays off, was able to moan in my bed without guilt, but I would have had to cancel classes on Tuesday if I had them. I was that sick.

So, the semester is off to a shaky start, but I like my classes so far, and I love the new text book. I'll be spending all of Labor Day weekend getting caught up on everything for the semester, but then I think it will be smooth sailing.

Okay, don't laugh so hard.
