Keep repeating it like a mantra and eventually you almost start to convince yourself.
I’m joking of course, it’s great to be back. So much possibility, so much hope.
So much for the summer…
So it’s a new academic year, new students, is it a new you, or the old you? Feeling refreshed, revitalised, reinvigorated, reinserted (what does that mean? Not sure I was on a roll).
If you do ‘something’ a certain way, is it because that is the best way to do it, or is it the way it has always been done?
Is there ‘something’ the college does that you are unhappy about, or have you had an idea about ‘something’ that could be done a different, maybe, even better way?
Who have you spoken to about that?
Do we, and again when I say we I mean you, sorry me, (What? Editor)
And… (And what? Editor)
15 days later
What just happened?
I feel like I’ve been hit by a brick.
And like that Enrolment and Induction are complete. All those weeks of planning and preparation.
Or if I’m being honest, sat by the beach, planning and preparing to plan and prepare.
What was I about to say before the 15 day break in writing?
Except I’m certain that it would have been hilarious, entertaining and would have changed your teaching life.
Oh well maybe next time…
Be seeing you.
