Back for Fall 2019

Not long after my last post, I moved into a full-time administrative position at my university and was already working full-time at an online university, plus freelancing, so I had to give my blogs a break because I was working 80-hour weeks.

But - not anymore! I quit my online job because it was just too much. So I continue to be the administrator for two college departments and now teach First Year Experience courses (at the same university). And that's perfect, because that class is all about helping freshmen navigate their first year. So I will try to tie in topics from that class in addition to my other posts.

Anyway, I'll be back with some late summer posts and we'll hit the ground running in fall!

Even Blogs Take Summer Breaks

Since adjuncts don't get paid over the summer (unless we're teaching, which I'm not at the moment), we take this time for posh overseas trips.  HAHAHA.  If only.  No, we tend to work on other jobs, if we're lucky to have them, or take the time to clean the house while getting ulcers over not having an income.

I work totally freelance when I'm not teaching, and I'm assuming students are likely enjoying their summers, taking on jobs/internships, etc.  In other words, they are probably not reading blogs about school.  So I will be putting this blog on hold until we get closer to the fall semester.  At that point we'll pick things back up, let's say in August.  Of course, if I have an amazing bit of knowledge to pass on, I'll post it anyway.

I should mention that later this summer I'll begin teaching for Ashford University online, so I may decide to use the summer for tips about online learning (which I discuss throughout the year as well).

So have a great summer and BE SAFE!
