I taught 4 classes today at the university. In the first class we learned how to write a summary about a euthanasia debate article and their homework to read an article about urban sustainability that they will summarize. The second class we heard a presentation about a charity in France and then we discussed a political comic strip. The third class we learned about how to understand headlines in American newspapers better. The last class was a beer with one student and we discussed his family problems but it was a nice enough time. After having studied psychology it’s nice to hear people able to speak of personal things. That might sound funny but living so far from the nest, momentary intimacy with other human beings is important. And I got paid for that.
I actually did some work for almost an hour this evening with a Beck’s in my hand. I pulled some articles off the internet about the Valerie Plame affair that I’ll use in next week’s newspapers class.
I’m listening to Howard Stern interview Perez Hilton, a gossip columnist.
Going to dinner with some friends tomorrow night.
Saturday? Grade papers, hike, make a hearty dinner.
