Why is it so chilly here between 8:00 p.m. and 10:00 a.m.? I had to ask M.Bro to mail me a sweatshirt this weekend.
The students descended on us today. They have an entire evening of icebreakers with the residential staff tonight, and we start classes bright and early tomorrow morning. I'm not nervous - just anxious. I really have no idea what to expect out of these kids. With college students, I can be reasonably sure they'll mostly look bored and/or hung-over, and that sureness is comforting - it makes the success of the class almost completely dependent on me and me alone.
The first RA/Instructor student-handoff happens at Leo (the) Lion at 8:50 tomorrow - wish me luck.
