What can I say, I’m pretty stoked about the sun still being up when I walk home from the bus stop at 5:30pm. Yay, sunshine!!
Monday was good. I was asked to be a Teaching-As-Research (TAR) Fellow, which comes with a tiny stipend and gives me a chance to be mentored while I learn to do pedagogical research. We had our first meeting, and it was really great, and it feels really good to meet with people who appreciate my background and my interest in teaching, which, um, is sadly less common than you might think in higher education. This end of things is definitely where I belong, if I belong in academia at all.
