I have a secret

I have a secret. One that I usually am very successful at hiding from the world but in the past two weeks, I have been unable to hold in it anymore.

I am a klutz.

No, really. This was brought home to me this morning when A) I pulled my curtain rod off the wall (oh THAT's why you're suppose to use those plastic anchor thingies) B) I broke the tip off my razor blade in the holder tool and C) as I was wrapping the spent razor in masking tape, I realized that the skin was flaking off my fingers from where I burned myself last week.

Oh yeah, did I mention I picked up a straight-from-the-oven glass corningwear lid last Sunday? Worst fingers in the world to get blisters on - your thumb and middle finger. You do a lot with those suckers.

Do over please.

I messed up. I accidentally left several items off of my syllabus - like excused vs. unexcused absences, not accepting late work and other such class room management policies - oh, and my rule about no cell phones. And now it is causing all sorts of problems.

I have just not been a good professor this semester. And I just want it to be over. Today marks two more weeks of school, counting finals. It cannot end soon enough for me.

I don't play that way.

"New Improved Taste" is actually true. Not bad Nyquil, not bad.

I Ponder

I have been thinking for a while that I need to be a better friend. As much as I love playing around on FB and am busy with being a professor (Esp. since I procrastinate so I am slammed with work at the last minute), there is no excuse to pick up the phone and call the friends I don't get to see on a regular basis and say "hi."

It's that easy, so why am I not doing it more often?
