Posting has been light for the last 4 months. It should start getting back to normal now.
It’s been a crazy semester.
I was already signed up to help run a conference in October.
I had a chapter for a book that, unlike a journal article, needed to be finished on deadline.
Then university administration thought they’d get more students by peeling off an online section from a face-to-face MBA class of mine. I ended up with the same number of students, split into 2 groups that had to be run differently. Of course, this experiment counted as an overload for me, rather than getting me out of some other class.
And, on the second day of class my colleague Joe Baker collapsed with a heart problem (he’s fine). So I took his ManEc class for half the semester.
The best I ever do here is a 3 classes and 2 preps (a 3/2) with no graduate classes. The first half of this semester I was doing a 5/4 with two graduate classes.
Thirteen days in a row of leaving work early and often being swamped at home: furniture delivery, spouses make-up class, blizzard, tough-to-fix car problem, and a really sick kid (who's getting better now).
Somewhere in there I also fit in 4 phone interviews for a search committee, and all the work for another committee that does 90% of its annual stuff in the last week of January.
Ended it all by losing an evening to an unusually incapacitating migraine.
