Sorry I’ve been incommunicado, but this has been the worst semester ever! I feel like the biggest prof flake in the world, but in this case reality is far stranger than fiction and some of it I just cannot put in a post in order to protect the guilty and/or insane.
Two complaints from students (first ever) and had to discuss them with my chair. Fortunately, I’d already been hard at work fixing the problems earlier this week.
My car blew up spectacularly, so after two weeks, found a replacement—which is now also having issues...guess a trip to the mechanic is in order.
I have a mouse in my house, so the exterminator should be here shortly. Wow, are my cats going to be disappointed that they won’t get to make new friends. They've been very eager to meet our visitor.
What's been your worst semester? What made it so rotten???
