Feeling like an academic August 15, 2011

It’s amusing to me that, last year, I realized how much more peaceful life could be when one is not teaching.

But when I was called and asked to teach a class this semester, I decided to take it.  Yes, it’s more work and craziness, but I do miss being in a classroom and interacting with students.  I also like it when those students are fairly technical, so I’m happy that I’ll be working with future engineers.

So I’m back on the semester system soon.

I’m doing my job at work, but that, lately, includes working on papers and research proposals.  And I’m throwing in some teaching, as well.

I’m starting to feel like an academic, although I’m not really sure what what term entails.  (I get the impression that professors think it only includes other professors.)

Of course, a friend says that a sure sign I must be on my road to academia is that I procrastinate by blogging…
