today I must go to the art institute and finally introduce myself around, do paperwork, etc. teaching begins for me on monday and I haven't even signed up for payroll yet. a million things and counting before I can rest easy and just start quietly freaking about filling three hours every week. for now I'm just going to be slightly nervous about going into a new place where I know no one and nothing about the culture etc. first days of any kind are always nerve-wracking.
beyond that there is not much I can do to fix anything except to keep urging you to ride your representatives until some heads roll for real. I think I will send more email tomorrow since I suspect they are all just now getting to the ones I sent over the weekend.
should the financial end of things ever shape up for me, I will be putting together my earthquake kit here very soon. and getting renter's insurance.
here's a boring list
make toc for reader
check mail for things I need to fill out and take in
call human resources dept to make appointment for paperwork
get on bus
figure least steep walking route from bus stop to building
