I've finally decided to join the crowd. So here's my little blog. la-de-da. Here I will dump scattered thoughts, disconnected ramblings, and other annoying verbal excursions that found no fitting place in that other world called reality. You also find thoughts here related to courses I am currently teaching, or am planning to teach. So, welcome students, and/or future students. Feel free to use this as a supplement to the course and to Blackboard. Any others are welcome to join in on any of these conversations. I'm currently contemplating what will be my first substantive post. I'm strangely filled with anxiety about that. Though I know it isn't true, it seems like my first real post will determine the direction of the blog. Funny me. This isn't no dissertation, after all!
