Let Me Be, Brain

I slept really badly last night, because apparently my brain had decided that I needed to plan out the first week of classes, so I kept waking from half-dreams where I was sketching out mini-lectures to cover classroom logistics, thinking about whether to do them both as video and transcripts (yes, probably).

Also wondering whether to put content up front, thinking through how to effectively gamify the class in a way that didn’t just feel like those terrible anti-harassment tutorials they make us go through, where we’re just jumping through tedious hoops….

…and okay, brain, but today I have to work on other things, and I’ll be able to do that better if I GET ENOUGH SLEEP, and if I promise to start on the teaching stuff more seriously tomorrow, will you let me be? Please?
