I have one more drinking day until school starts. friends b and e will be by in a few hours to take me to the beer and sausage place. b and e are bad for my professed vegetarianism.
tomorrow I have to write the syllabus. it shouldn't be too hard to revise my 1B syllabus into a 1A syllabus and I pretty much know what I am teaching when but it still is anxiety-provoking that I have waited this long. but then actually doing it has also been anxiety-provoking which is probably why I have waited this long so really the fact of teaching itself would be making me anxious whether I was over- or under-prepared. as is there is not that much to be anxious about this week as it is only the first week and there is not a lot to do other than take roll and tell them how terribly hard rhetoric is.
even so. what if they don't like me?
