Another semester begins today.
I could complain about the college computer system that I’ve finally managed to master after a mere four years (all in Korean, natch).
Or that the school is being stingy with the air-conditioning, even though it’s still August and Korean bureaucrats don’t seem to understand that the weather is not affected by mandatory, man-made things like college schedules. (Shocker!)
Or that I’ve got a weird stomach thing. Not quite the flu, but maybe something to do with a new set of vitamins I’m taking in the morning. My tummy’s all flippy-floppy and I could use a coffee but I don’t think that would be a good idea, acidity-wise.
Or the fact my boss is sick and I haven’t seen or spoken with him once since I came back from America, and there’s usually a ton of information he has to give me and my coworkers regarding policy changes and what-not. (Not a complaint, more of a lament.)
But I’m just teaching one easy, class expectations kind-of-thing today so it should be painless.
Just hoping the room has functioning AC. Between the shiny new buildings at my university and the 1970’s brutalist ones it’s kind of a mixed bag, temperature-wise, and I won’t know until I get into my actual classrooms if I’m teaching on the deck of the USS Enterprise or the back room of Jeffrey Dahmer’s apartment.
