Music Monday, and Happy New Year!

No, I have not taken leave of my senses. At least no more than normal. It is not the beginning of the calendar year, or the fiscal year. But, by the time this posts, it will be the start of the new academic year at Georgia College. This year is going exciting. A new class of freshmen have already moved into the residence halls. By the time this week is out, I will have lectured to new classes of Politics and Society, and what is technically five sections of First Year Academic Seminar (three of them are combined).

I look forward to meeting, and learning from my new students. Yes, I learn from them as much as they learn from me. So, from now until May, I will work on an exchange of information. I hope to impart to my students the skills and knowledge they need to be good students, good citizens, and good human beings. From them, I hope to learn about each student and what motivates them. And how I can help them better in their journey.

This is supposed to be a Music Monday post. I honestly had a difficult time selecting a song. “New Day Dawning” seemed appropriate, but I used it a few weeks ago. So, in honor of my undecided majors, I present “Every Major’s Terrible.”

Always Double Tap

In my seminar course, I go over the rules of the Rules for Surviving the Zombie Apocalypse, as adapted by GradHacker for grad school, and then by me for undergrads (instead of a bar, go to a café, etc). Rule #2 is Double Tap, or double check and proof read everything. Every now and then, I find where this rule has been violated, sometimes with humorous results. Last night was one of these occasions.

Let us also not ignore the fact that the label is on a Klondike Bar…

Snickers bars ARE very good. My thesis advisor described them as the nearly perfect food (“They have peanuts, chocolate, and caramel. Only other thing they need is bourbon.”). But, they are not that good. I didn’t bother asking for a price check. I grabbed the Reese’s instead. 🙂
