Why does the new term make me wish for new notebooks full of empty sheets of paper ready to be filled with my class notes? Even though I don't start back to grad school until January 23rd, I am anxious to get going. I paranoically checked my textbook list to make sure I had the right ones ($300 worth!!) and then thumbed through them to get an idea of what was in store. Until the syllabi are posted, it is a guess. Like our students, I am trying to squeeze lots of fun activities into the time I have left, knowing that when the curtain falls on the vacation, a different energy is required. I hope our students feel engaged in their term they are starting today. I love the increase in traffic here in the ERC. Coffee bar begins tomorrow!!!! Yippee!
