Classes are pleasant and helpful. It seems that I spend most my time reading for those classes and for lab.
Amazingly enough, I'm really enjoying the teaching aspect of my job. My students are, for the most part, smart and responsible and generally pleasant. There's a couple that need to get their acts together, but hopefully that will change.
One Andrea DenHoed graced me with her presence last week. That was probably the most exciting thing that's happened to me thus far.
The weather here is fantastic. It's been in the mid-60s to mid-70s.
I've acquired houseplants. They appear to be happy.
There are some very good possibilities for a permanent church home.
The quest for a non-Starbucks coffee shop is still floundering. There's one that's very promising, but it's being remodeled (after a fire, I believe). I have found a sweet bookshop though, and that does allay my distress a bit.
I learned a new word: tokogenesis. You should look it up.
I still feel like this is just an extended vacation some days.
I've uploaded some photos to thefacebook. Take a look. The stories will be visually enhanced.
Retraction: My classmates/colleagues are not as normal as I thought. Thank God. They're actually pretty great. And they (sometimes) laugh at my jokes.
