Two posts in one day? I know. That's a lot of posts for me.
So yesterday afternoon I got an email from the department head asking if I would teach a course for them this summer. First summer session, actually. That session starts a week from last Monday. I've never taught the course, and I have never taken a summer course that meets every day. It really seems like a daunting amount of work, but the extra pay is probably worth it. The only problem is that I have to create a syllabus in just a few days based on a book that has been ordered, but that I have never seen. I'm not excited about this. I had planned to spend my summer sitting around in my underwear playing video games. :-(
