I'm teaching a class called The Novel. He called me yesterday at 3:45 and asked me if I could start teaching that night. Being a glutton for punishment, I said, "Sure!" The books I was given to teach are Frankenstein, The Awakening, and Sea Wolf. There are only two students in the class, and as a group, we decided to toss out The Awakening and go with Dracula.

So, I went from basically not having any work to do this year to teaching three classes and working as a TA on Thursday nights. It's also bizarre because I've always been a student. This is the first semester of my life where I am only a teacher.

I'm also really happy to be teaching The Novel because I love teaching literature. I think it's going to be a lot more fun than my two composition classes. Of course, both my students admitted that they didn't like to read and they're only taking the class because they need that for their gen-ed requirements. Oh well--maybe I can do something to change their minds.
