September in Review

September is my birthday month and the start of school. It goes by in a flash.

School started. My daughter started Kindergarten. She thought the first week was awesome. But when the second week started, she was not as excited: "You mean we have to go every week?!"

My son started fifth grade. I confirmed my memory that fifth grade math isn't that fun.

I started teaching fall classes. Nine weeks until sabbatical. Not that I'm counting, but I have a project, and I can't wait to work only on it.

The final page proofs for my upcoming article for Business Communication Quarterly arrived.

I spoke at the Nonprofit Networking Seminar and Cocktail Hour at the Cross Insurance Center in Bangor. I got to tour the new center and meet a lot of great folks.

I made it out of the Treworgy Corn Maze.

I held a career planning workshop for English majors. As usual, the students with their career plans in order attended.

And, I'm already feeling way behind on everything. Students are extremely busy with community outreach projects, internships, and job searches. One of the things I want to do this year is to write more about the work students are doing.

Now, onward to October...see what I mean about being behind? We're already a week into October, and I'm just now getting to it!
