Summer’s Over, School is Here: Let the Games Begin!


Classes haven’t officially started yet, but we’re ramping up here at the University for Yet Another Semester. It’s my first as full-time faculty, and I’m already about a month behind. Or so. Teaching a full load of chemistry classes and labs at a liberal-arts school isn’t for the faint of heart! I’ll be leading the Organic Chemistry effort, lecture three times a week and two big labs. My “lower stress” sessions will be in Introduction to Chemistry, a class for non-majors. No lab for me on that one. I’ll also be scheduling the visiting seminars for the year, and leading the Chemistry Senior Seminar capstone effort. I’ll also be assisting one of the business profs with the Business of Science capstone.

On weekends I’ll get a nap, I hope.


It’s not as bad as it sounds, though. And I asked for it; more proof that you should be careful what you ask for!

On the food front, I suspect I’ll be doing a lot more consumption that preparation this season. With no full kitchen available at the Barracks, and no time to plan and execute, I’ll mostly be downing instant noodles and coffee. At least the grill’s good to go this semester. Speaking of which, I wonder what’s for dinner this evening?

Ah, the carefree life of a dream job…

Enjoy the (Back to School) Heat!
