First day of school

Today is the first day of the fall semester. I had gotten spoiled to the relative dearth of humanity on campus over the summer, so it was a bit of a rude awakening to have to dodge a throng at every turn.

I started out by stopping at the Big Dorm convenience store to pick up a variety of treats for an activity with my students. I’ve got lots of different types of junk food (including these!), some fruit, and I’ll soon go pick up a few goodies from a cupcake shop. One thing I noticed is that I guess I now look more like faculty/staff than a student, because no one attempted to hand me fliers, which is a good thing, but makes me feel old. (It’s always something, isn’t it?)

Anyhoo, so this is my new blog. I feel kind of weird about it — I have a new blog because the host of the old blog is mad at me, I guess, and I’ve been kicked off her domain. Sort of. I guess. Maybe I’m wrong, but I’m too much of a chicken to ask. Maybe someday I will. Or maybe I’ll just always wonder.

    I like your pretty new blog, Melanie!
    I had the same experience on campus today–no one gave me coupons or tried to get me to join a religion AT ALL! I hope that means my students will also see me as an authoritative adult–what do you think the chances are?
