Half way changes

I am over February big time.   A catalogue of uncontrollable events have made life too serious and grown up for my liking.  And to make matters worse I am have less than two weeks’ left on my contract, and not a hopeful job application in sight.  I am more than ready for Cas’s All The Small Things linky this week, giving me permission to ignore it all.

Changing my mind about teaching

The autumn term was a desert for me blogging-wise.  Ditto social life, reading novels, and keeping on top of basic cleaning (which might explain how goddamn ill everyone seemed to get!).  This was because I was teaching, something I hadn’t done for over a decade, and with a vision of undergraduates turning up keyed up on their reading lists plus an impressive range of online sources, I panicked and did the only thing I could.  I over-prepared.
