A colleague who read my CV just said to me that I have “oodles of publications.” This made me very happy even though there is a a chance he was just trying to be encouraging in view of my midpoint tenure review stress.
My noodle has produced an oodle of publications.
I’m a little hyper because I had an unexpected class observation by the Chair today. The good thing is that I always have tons of original activities prepared, so the class went well. And the students this semester are fantastic. Very motivated, hard-working, intelligent. And they appreciate it that I only speak Spanish in class, unlike some groups I’ve had who’d throw tantrums every time I tried to teach them Spanish by speaking Spanish.
