Now Teaching: Week 1

Oh right, teaching. Tues through Thurs evenings I was trying to pull together CompSci work, having used my prep for paperwork (new phones!) and handling my actual math courses. Next week will be worse, meetings almost every day. >.< Don’t get me wrong, I actually like meetings, but I don’t like worrying about being able to teach the next day as I attend them. The stress will continue because of this, even through this weekend.
Previous INDEX Next

Google/Gmail randomly shutting down my course website midday on the first day didn’t improve things. I put in a ticket. It seemed to be back by end of day Wednesday with no further communication. (Apparently happened to Denise once too.) I was going to set up this series’ Index page Tuesday, forgot, put in a placeholder Friday, need to get to that. “Epsilon” took priority.

For steps, I knew we’d lose the 20 stars streak. But 7500 per day is feasible; looks like an average teaching day is about 6,000 steps, followed by another 1,000 (to get a single star at 10 minutes of more intense activity) by going out for a jog later. Also this week, nice chat with a colleague, and in general people (students included) seem happy to see me around. My ability to handle names feels even worse though. I’ve reinstated the nametag random seating thing. I guess we’ll see how it all fits together.
