Three weeks in...slightly nuttier than normal - Carr and Crazy
A year in the life of the weird
Three weeks in...slightly nuttier than normal
I would just like to point out that Facebook's new feed thing makes stalking someone a lot easier now. Having known a few people who could possibly be stalkers makes it just a little scarier.

I've decided that I love my job--well, one of them. Working in the Writing Center is the most fun, and probably because I do less work and more sitting around and laughing my head off than anything else. But when I am working, I'm figuring out ways to explain grammar concepts that I've internalized through all these years. I never thought I'd use the words "teaching strategies" or "pedagogy" in casual conversation, but I have and that scares me somewhat.

I also have two giant zits on my forehead and one underneath my eye. *sigh*

My theory classes are driving me insane. We were reading Saussure in Dr. K's class, and his theories of semiology--and spent over half an hour discussing the difference between the words "different" and "distinct." It's really hard to think you understand something when you read it, and then get to class and realize that you were so off the mark, you weren't even close to the target.

crazy_ewok, I have no idea what your problem was with Dr. Mildew!  I love him!  He's so cool, and very good at explaining theory.  I could see how he might not be the best teacher for advanced comp, but I'm really enjoying this class with him.

On the other hand, my class in Old English is getting more and more interesting.  Dr. B. explained how to decline nouns today in class, which made things a lot easier for me to understand.  Yay for Old English!

Well, I don't have to go anywhere or do anything until two-thirty tomorrow, so I'm going to go to sleep and sleep *late.*

Oh he's a real nice guy and all, and does have an engaging teaching style...but wait until you need him to give you feedback on a graded paper or test, especially something he expects you to revise after he has read it. You'll neeeevvvvvvvveeerrrrr get your stuff back on time, and he'll keep saying and saying and saying, "Oh I'll give it back by so-and-so..." and then you'll get to the end of the semester and STILL WON'T HAVE IT BACK AND YOU'LL HAVE TO REVISE TEN MILLION PAPERS ALL DURING FINALS WEEK AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH!
