So Far, So Good

Thanks for all the emails over the past couple days wondering how things are going. To quickly summarize:

  • Yes, I played nice with everyone one.

  • Yes, I had freshly sharpened pencils and a new lunch pail (I ended up going with Josie and the Pussycats over Scooby Do).

  • No, I did not set out milk and cookies for an afterschool snack, nor am I in bed by 9pm on school nights (class doesn't end till 9pm, so that makes it difficult).

  • The new director of the program is very opinionated, but very funny and I think will be great to work with. We've already disagreed on the merits of Netherland, but I'm really looking forward to what he has to say and teach.

  • "The first thing we do is throw out the reading list you got over the summer (he meant the long "recommended" reading as opposed to the seven I've been investing in." His reasoning behind that seems sound, and all go into it later.

  • Had drinks with several of my classmates (and the tutor) tonight and after only two nights (and two pints) most everyone (at least the drinkers) seems bright, enthusiastic and fun.

And that's where we are now. Stay tuned.
