Semester 1 starts on Monday. I had planned to spend today checking that everything was in place and ready to go but ended up trying to fix a whole new suite of problems. It's like cleaning up mercury.
The past fortnight has been interesting. One of the big tasks was closing down a course on short notice. That wasn't very enjoyable but we seem to have got it under control. The other biggie—which was much more fun—was meeting the new undergrads. They're a lovely bunch.
I'm hoping that once semester 1 settles down I'll be able to get back to writing. I might also have a chance to get out of the office. We'll have at least one trip to Queenscliff over the next couple of weeks. (Okay, it's not the Great Barrier Reef but it's better than the campus pond.) Should be good.
