I'm back in Nashville and doing super-exciting things. Yesterday I rearranged my bookshelf, hoping to defy the laws of physics and find sufficient room for my school books. Today I sorted the backlog of mail. I've also been reading. Remember back in the day, when you showed up for class on the first day and got the syllabus, and if you were lucky you got to leave early? Even though everyone used email when I was in college (in the pre-Blackboard era), profs didn't expect work pre-class. Now, the semester is really longer by one class period than in the good old days, since a lot of professors assign readings to be done by the first day, and sometimes even written work.
