OK, the orientation course wasn’t bad, but today seems like I haven’t been to school in years! OK, so maybe I haven’t. But you’d think that teaching for the last couple of decades would ease the blow.
What does the prof want? What is appropriate in this course that might not be elsewhere? What if I offend? Will my marks be effected for the rest of the course? Should I write everything in APA style now? Even my shopping lists? How accurate do I have to be with word counts? What if I can’t read that fast? (what if I just forget how to read altogether? – maybe librarianship ain’t the place for me)
I’m sure I’ll get my stride. But there was a bit of a chill when I jumped in the water today!
