Over the weekend I spent some time organizing files, prepping notes for class, and doing whatever it is that profs do in their free time1. Of course, sitting around organizing meant that I spent much of my time exploring the past year of work. It’s weird; most days I feel as if I get nothing […]Read more "Three Year Prof-iversary"
I spend too many hours in meetings. There, I said it. Somehow, I feel a little better. Seriously though, I’m having one of those days where I’m trying to figure out how I’m supposed to work on – let alone finish – the various projects that I’m trying to complete.

Given the craziness of the holidays, I almost overlooked the fact that January 1 was not just the beginning of 2012, it was also the beginning of my second year as an Ass. Prof. I know, how could I forget such an occasion? That’s right folks, I almost forgot that I’ve officially been gainfully employed at […]Read more "How Does One Celebrate A Job-iversary?"
So it’s official folks. Today I launch my newest blog. Say what? That’s correct; I’ve started yet another blog. But it’s not going to be quite the same as Consumed By Wanderlust. It will still be epic and awesome and full of the nerdy goodness that you’ve come to expect here, but it will be […]Read more "Introducing The Ass Prof Blog"
