Little News.

It's been a few days since my last update, but not because I haven't wanted to write; rather, there's been nothing interesting about which to write.

My math class is going as swimmingly as one could help, which is to say that I'm paddling along well enough (considering I've managed to survive two of the 14 weeks). The graduate teaching assistant has more personality than the professor, but is less clear, so I'm having to learn everything from the professor (which I should be doing anyway) and getting my metaphorical chuckles from the graduate teaching assistant. The graduate teaching assistant is very nice, but I think inexperienced with the teaching, or with his explanations, because I wind up going to the recitation having a pretty good idea of what's going on, and leaving being confused (as do many others enrolled in this particular recitation, it seems). The lesson here is to have specific questions to ask the graduate teaching assistant.

The Writing Center is officially open for business this week. We have a new online scheduling program ("new" insofar as we started using it this past summer), and I'm gathering that tutors and clients are still getting used to process. Despite this, though, I do notice that we have quite a few appointments scheduled for this week. It's nice to be able to see what students will be bringing in, since there are spots for them to indicate for which class they need help, what they want to work on, etc.
