1. I got to play Kinect for the first time last night.
2. I'm listening to Modest Mouse (they always make me smile).
3. I got some new followers, which always feels nice (even if I do know them, and coerced them into following).
I'm once again, you guessed it, sitting in the computer lab at my University. I'm supposed to be standing at a white board right now, pontificating about the normal curve, and how Correlation does not equal Causation, and other things that will help them do well on homework and tests, but I'm sitting in the room, alone.
At the first of the semester, I went to each of their classes and said, "Hey, I'm Paul. I'm going to be doing study sessions to help with this semester's class. If you come, I promise it will help. I was thinking I would do them on Friday, at 11:30 in room LA 026. By a show of hands, how many of you would be able to make that?" I cannot tell you how many hands I saw. I thought room LA 026 would not be able to hold the number of students who would come. But, as stated above, no one comes most days.
Now, this doesn't really bother me. I don't mind having an hour to check my facebook and write my blog, but I feel bad for the students. Chances are, many of them did poorly on this last test. Chances are, I could help them do better. Chances are, they don't have classes on Friday and would rather get a C in the class than give up their early weekends. I guess I really can't blame them.
Anyway, I called Steve and he said that my hard drive should show up today, and that my computer might be fixed today. Then I might actually be able to find time to read everyone else's blog, and my numbers might improve. I might even be able to start writing things that were a little more exciting. Oh well.
Have a nice day.
