waving from afar

I got a message from a friend (thank you friend) checking to be sure I was okay, seeing as I hadn't posted in a while. That's prompted me to post this--I am okay! Just a bit overwhelmed at the moment with the new job. Last week was my multiple-day orientation, and that was Very Daunting--lots of rules and procedures and things that mainly won't apply to me but that I have to know.

And yesterday was my first day of teaching, and it was a positive experience--the students are great and seemed to genuinely enjoy the material--but we went through the material I had expected would last the whole class in ... less than the whole class. Fortunately I had the week's materials to hand, so I was able to just forge ahead, but that put me off my stride a bit.

It'll take me a bit to get into the swing of things, but hopefully by next week or the week after I'll be back to my normal posting and commenting habits (though in more limited hours).

Hello! wavewavewavewavewave! Good to see you. :) And exciting to hear about the job, and about how intellectually voracious your students are - all the best for getting into the swing of things, and having a wonderful time.

Yes, all fine here, though life is busy and in flux.
