So, I teach college students. Lots of them. I've done so all through graduate school, and now I'm a professor. Most days, I totally adore my job. There's nothing better than getting someone really interested in a topic that I love :) However, this is midterm week, and I'm pretty much at the tear-my-hair out stage. I do not do well with students who are lazy or don't take initiative. Don't expect me to put in effort because you won't or don't. It seems to me that things here are much much worse than the school I taught at before, and it's making me bonkers (and SO not helping my ulcer).
Seriously, these are my students lately:
So, what's a professor to do? Dole out extra help to slackers? Help those who are willing to put in the effort? I don't want to be a "parent" and tell these kids to suck it up and realize this is real life, but the temptation is certainly there!
Also, there's an interview of me here, on Arianne Cruz's fun blog. Stop on by and say hello, and find out if I've ever had any crazy fan experiences (though, probably, you can guess the answer to that just from reading this post).
Oh, and tomorrow, I have my first radio interview. I'm SO beyond nervous!!
Remember, Colors Like Memories, on sale this week, only $1.99--that's cheaper than a latte!
