Well, the first week of…

Well, the first week of classes is over, and I think I passed with flying colors. :-) I'm finding it much easier this time around -- less nerve-wracking, and I feel like I actually know what I'm doing. I don't think students realize how much of a difference it makes whether a professor has taught the course before. I really understand the structure of the course now -- I know which lectures I'll give when, and can plan for them, and even occasionally foreshadow upcoming topics. It makes for a much more integrated class. (On the other hand, I'm also teaching a new class, which is almost as difficult as it was last semester. I'm a bit more confident, though).

I do still need to finish my application; if I don't chicken out, I'll be applying to the University of Utah Ph.D. program on Tuesday. Meep. The less said there, the better, I think.

Jed arrives in about two hours and is staying 'til Monday night -- woohoo! Lots of people coming over for brunch tomorrow, which should be fun. I do need to do some work this weekend, but I think I'll try to do it in the early mornings. Right now I just want to go home and take a nap -- I'm sleepy!
