I know this isn't fair to those who are buried under papers right now, but I've been having a blast at work lately. Oh, I've had the occasional frustration, like not being able to get the large format printer to cooperate properly, but generally things are going very well. I can hardly believe I wrote this, or this, or this. Just two weeks ago--man, that's sad. Someone remind me of these last few days when I go back into the funk again.
Today, Jean-Claude Bradley from Drexel came and gave a presentation on podcasting and screencasting lectures. If you do lectures at all, you should check it out. It was very interesting and several of the faculty who attended are interested in giving it a try.
Tomorrow is the last day of classes. Monday, I'm attending three students' thesis presentations. They've all worked closely with Mr. Geeky and two of them worked for me last summer in what I call a semi-slumber-party atmosphere. So we're close. :) Soon things will be gearing up for that semi-slumber-party atmosphere again and though it's hard work to get things set up for that, it's really fun. Basically, I've hired 6 students who will spend 10 weeks learning and developing multimedia projects. They work very closely together and rely on each other and me for lots of help and support. I'm looking forward to it!
I just feel like a lot of things are falling into place and I really have some direction. Let's hope it lasts for at least a little while.
