I truly am blessed to have the type of job that I do--I was able to teach the entire time, and the teaching was a good normalizing influence during a time where things seemed so unstable and unpredictable. The only downside is that I didn't get to do new podcasts for seminars 3 onward for ENG101 and 102 in the first Winter term, but I'm back on that since I'm back at my own house and have space and set up to start recording again. As a result, two new podcasts were added today and I anticipate doing a couple more later (in the middle of Seminar 3).
Dani's in the middle of surgical rotation and year 4 is coming up fast. We're already talking about residency programs, a month in Puerto Rico maybe next year (which, as you know, academic years start in July, so it's really this year) for a medical Spanish course as a possibility, and the craziness that med school will be over before we know it.
In the meantime, I am trying to do some writing on the side (when I'm not playing with podcasts, in the discussion boards, reading, or cooking), which is fun.
I hope everyone is well; this post was mainly to let folks know I'm still here, Dad's still kicking lymphoma's butt, and life has returned to as normal as it gets when it's February 29th and it's 80 degrees.
