We have a new friend at the desk. Her name is Pamela.
The freshmen seem to like her. I caught one saying good morning to her when I was getting my coffee. It was pretty cute.
I think the school year is finally settling down. It seemed like it took longer this year. Maybe it was the upheaval from the Union being moved to different little pockets of space around campus so that the demolition could begin. And now begins the long wait for the new Union that we will have in a few years.
My students seem to be settling in as well. We started talking about topics for their speeches last night. The speeches are far enough away that they aren’t so nervous about them yet, so they can focus on being excited about their topics. I hope they hold on to some of that energy as the due dates get closer.
