Well, they’re baaaaaaaaack. The cadets have returned to campus. Classes start on Wednesday.
I can’t say that I’m quite ready. With so much of my break taken up by Brunanburh I’ve hardly had a chance to think about the coming semester. I’ve drafted syllabi, but not much beyond that. I’d had dreams, pre-break, about getting all the PowerPoint presentations done for my Tolkien class — it’s a big class, so I’ll be using prepped material far more than I usually do — but I got, um, only the first week’s worth done. Oh well.
On the plus side, it’ll be good to see the kidz again, brimming with their excitement to learn.
Hear that, cadets? I want to see brimming on those faces. Brim! Brim!
