New Semester

It starts again today. The cycle repeats itself. Students come, ask questions, get confused, persevere, work and eventually graduate. For me, the main difference is that I have been asked to lead the opening ceremony. It is purely a gender thing. There are too many men doing the different speaches, so they want a woman to lead it. That excuse may be a little obsolete, because this year only the musicians and the headmaster are male, the mayor of Volda and the leaders of the student organisations are all female. I may have to do this in a masculine manner, to compensate. Only problem is - they asked me not to get too long-winded.

Your posts are very, very funny. I am a full-time PR pracitioner in St. John's, Newfoundland - Canada. I also teach part-time at Memorial University of Newfoundland. This year I'll be teaching Business Communication. I have taught Organizational Context of PR in the past.

I stumbled on to your blog while I was looking for something at work...I've read a few of your postings and now I cannot remember what I was looking for in the first place. I am appreciating your feminist perspective on teaching and life.

Glad you enjoyed the visit! And it sounds like out fields overlap quite a bit. Good to know we are not alone on the planet.
