It is I, Ancillary Adjunct, with an update….okay, who am I kidding? I don’t have the suaveness of Yaro! (Who does?)
When last you all saw me, I’d landed two CC jobs, and life appeared to be good. After that, I had even picked up a uni job…but of course, now one of the CC jobs just had to go and dry up. Seems snowflakes don’t want to get out of bed early. The bakery/bagel shop near me that currently has another adjunct on payroll is looking better and better. Pity the second of three syllabi that needed to be completed was for that now defunct class. So, I have to soldier on to complete one more syllabus. Yay. I think I will be scooping myself a larger serving of frozen yogurt today…..too scared and too broke to take up drinking.
I am happy for Burnt, may you stay shiny for a good part of this semester! EMH, you make me laugh…and wince in sympathy. As always, I love all our brave writers who produce the haikus. Yaro, you are in my thoughts: congrats on deciding to retire! I wish I could have had you as a prof in my sweetly naïve undergraduate days! Oh, and Gordon—can we please donate a portion of the proceeds of the Yaro pajamas on the ad sidebar to his retirement fund? Please? I am seriously considering buying a set when the yard sale I am holding in a few weeks (with almost all my earthly possessions) provides me some discretionary funding! LONG LIVE YARO!
