End of Semester Yeahs and Woes
So can anyone read this if it is on your learningbyts site, or is it password protected there? If it is free for anyone to see on learningbyts, then all this covert stuff is rather silly. I think I would like it to be anonymous, and then I feel like I can say anything I want to say. That does not mean we cannot let certain trusted souls in to comment, but then we do take the risk that they could cut and paste something we have said. However, if they were trusted souls, they would not do that. Therefore, that only leaves us with concern for each other and our abilities to identify a trusted soul. I am up for anything, just let me know because what we decide will factor into what I am willing to say.
By the way, I hate the comment thing. You have to open it up and read it every time. I can never remember if there were three or four comments there the last time. Therefore, I keep opening the comments and reading the same ones. It feels like I keep banging my head against a wall—tha-thump, tha-thump—over and over again.
It is finals week. I have class confusion over when my final is given. Every year this happens because I am unorganized and do not have my syllabus with me in class. Then someone reads the information off the campus bulletin and reads the wrong time out loud to everyone in class. So half the class writes down her/his verbal time stated in class, and the other half comes at the time stated in the syllabus. Ultimately, they are all responsible for reading the time in the syllabus, but try to tell them that. I email them to remind them of the correct time, and I place it in the BB announcements; it still always comes off to my lack of organization—which sucks at the end of a semester with everything I have to do and grade to end out a semester.
Our provost, Barbara M. just resigned effective august 2006. I do not know if you know that our President resigned also. He resigned about one month ago—right before the C&D vote. Do you think this a good time in the institution’s history to go menopausally, raised Italian, animated on administration? I think not.
