Into the breach

My new schedule has begun in earnest. I taught my first class at North Shore yesterday, and though admittedly all we did was go over the syllabus, I am pleased that it went well. I'd spent all the past week frantically building that syllabus, which was challenging as it's not my area of expertise, so I've been working pretty much constantly to get up to speed since I was only hired last Monday. I haven't actually taught any of the material yet, so I guess it remains to be tested, and I need to be prepared to adapt. Today I'm back at Bunker Hill in the tutoring center, which at least isn't too difficult until the semester picks up a little.

I'm a little bit burnt from the preparations for my new class being compressed into just the one week. The Lesley class at least gave me more lead time, and it's actually an English class, which was easier for me to get my head around. This is only the second day of my challenging new work schedule, and I'm already feeling a bit overwhelmed. The new diet, which requires a fair bit of prep and only eating at certain times, isn't making it easier, as I'm still getting used to it. But I'm sure I'll adjust. In the meantime, probably going to be hermitting to recuperate-- more than I do normally, I mean.
