At my desk..

ready to work. I actually sort of feel like working on writing task, but, alas! I must finishing prepping my course for this afternoon....why do I put that off every week. I can't wait until next semester when I am teaching 2 courses that I really love (and hence, prepping is not such a strain). It's not that I do not like what I am teaching...I really do. However, I have taught this particular course in various forms for the last 15! (is that even possible?) semesters (including summers) with no break...I'm tired of talking about this stuff and no amount of love for my subject can override that fact.

On another note, I have a really great consulting opportunity which involves travel, how stupid is it to take on something like that in the first year of a new t-t job? It's only 3 trips in one semester and great money...and doing something I like to do. Hhhmmm....tempting....

I'd recommend taking the consulting. Good to make and keep such connections.
Tie it to teaching if at all possible, or see if there are pub opps if it involves data at all.

Yeah, teaching the same thing over and over again sort of gets to you. I like it on the occasion that I get to do something new.
