The "get ready for Fall!" e-mails have started arriving.
The end-of-summer faculty meeting/boot in the ass session has been scheduled.
Book order forms and preliminary class lists have started appearing in mail boxes.
I just got back from vacation!
A quick look at my schedule confirms that I teach my last summer session class on Aug 15, and start the new fall semester on August 29.
After the horrible spring semester, I was pretty crispy from burnout, and had decided to take summer "off" by only teaching one course. That was knocked galley-west by a colleague going out on FMLA, and I went from "summer at ease" of one class scheduled to "full boat" of three classes in the space of a week.
Everyone's papers are due in the same week, which gives me a fuckton of grading to do on top of my fall semester prep.
Triple fuck with whipped cream on top!
