Tuesday was my first day of school for this semester. I have five classes on Tuesday and five again on Wednesday. This is the heaviest schedule I have had in my ten years I started teaching here. In addition, I still have MA students who I am advising for their thesis.
Tuesdays my classes start at 8 am:
8:00 am to 9:30 The Methodology of Writing the BA Cultural Thesis – Only 2 of the students are my advisees.
9:30 to 11:00 Race and Ethnicity in US Journalism II
11:00 to 12:30 pm Religion: Born in the USA
12:30 to 2:00 Journalism as Portrayed in US Films
2:00 to 3:30 Library Research Methods
Wednesdays also start early.
8:00 am to 9:30 Websites and Blogging: 21st Century Journalism
9:30 to 11:00 The Methodology of MA Cultural Studies
11:00 to 12:30 pm Introduction to Creative Writing
12:30 to 2:00 Corp-ocracy – The Corporations of Destruction
2:00 to 3:30 The Mystery Novel
My main computer is still working through the same diagnostics that it started on Tuesday when I turned it on. I have this fear that if I turn it off, it will only start from the beginning again, so I thought it best to let it play itself out. All that and ten courses; I am arranging for my funeral by the end of May. Hopefully, I will last that long.
