Teaching high school students, the short version

1. Not a good idea to call them kids. I'll have to stop doing that.

2. I talk too much. In general, and when I'm nervous. And apparently, when I'm not getting enough sleep.

3. DC in the summer is not a good place to wear long sleeves.

4. These are the most polite high school students I have ever seen. Somebody called them Stepford students, and that's not the worst description I've heard.

5. They're also very determined to do well, and smart, so this first class looks like it'll be a good one.

6. On a totally unrelated note, it's possible to miss people and not know it until I talk to them. Sort of like not remembering why I like due South until I watch it again. Strange, but true.

Am having SERIOUS DW withdrawal symptoms now that you have (abruptly) cut off my weekly supply. When do I get the last 3? When oh when?

Going okay. The pretty, pretty dS scenes are helping. Can't tell if Shannon is more annoyed about the weird teaching schedule, or my sudden obsession with a television show.

And we're two weeks behind on DW, still. I have the eps, but I'm going to choose Paul Gross and Callum Keith Rennie being all slashy and stuff over David Tennant and the suddenly annoying Billie Piper any day.

Let's face it, my crush on Doctor Who is new and shiny, but my addiction to due South is an old and familiar one. Even older than LFN, which is saying something given my attention span.
