The New Work Space Rules!

I'm loving my new work space, people. I have managed to accomplish so much today that it's even hard for me to believe. Here is what I did after getting home from a departmental meeting (which was only 5 hours ago):

1) Created an oral exam for the language course;
2) Prepared a review session and a study guide for the final exam in the language course;
3) Created the final exam for this course;
4) Made a PowerPoint for a review session in the Survey of literature course;
5) Created the final exam for this course;
6) Made a list of draconian rules for the oral exam to be handed out to the students while smiling gleefully.

All of the above-mentioned accomplishments mean that, apart from grading, I have absolutely no other teaching-related stuff to do until August. 

I think I just invented the proverbial wheel which, for me, is the realization that you work much better when you are comfortable and well-organized. Eureka!

What a delightful post title! Rules could be either a noun (which is what I first thought when I saw it) or a verb (Which is what I figured out it meant after reading the post.)

I was trying to create a title that would sound like that of the delightful movie "Cider House Rules.". I'm glad you picked up on that!

Pagan Topologist said...

Yes! Cider House rules was a wonderful movie!

That actor who played the teacher (I'm horrible with names) is beyond talented. I had goosebumps whenever he spoke.

Damn! I am embarrassed that I did not capitalize 'Rules' in the above post. He was good, although my most vivid memories are of Erikah Badu.

I also have a terrible time with names.
