I have five hours to drink my coffee and go to Rainbow and get food and come back and edit a paper and then it will probably be time for a nap. I slept from 10am till almost 5pm but that won't be long enough I don't think. Not that it matters--have a look at my sleep pattern over the last week and you'll see why not.
I am starting to stress out about teaching and I need to make up a syllabus over the next few days. I think I am going to make a lot of the readings available as .pdfs--this means I can be flexible as the class goes on rather than lock us into a single trajectory. Not that I won't plan one out--I will, but this way I can add and subtract as needed. I have to go pick up my desk copy of the textbooks, though, before I can really say what we'll be studying when. I guess I can choose the main texts and put them in with a skeleton showing when the papers are due and then plug in actual writing topics after I get the books on Monday. I should have gone and gotten them this week but I got a little depressed and immobile.
OK I'm going to cut this short and go get groceries while I still can. I won't lie though--I've been more than a little depressed. Pats on the head are welcome. :)
