One week to moving day

Moving day is officially set at Tuesday August 14th. Most of the house is loaded up and packed away in boxes. There are just a few more things to get done. But I can hardly believe that I will be leaving here after 5 years. Hopefully the move goes well!

I have just received my schedule for my first week at work. This involves new faculty orientations and workshops. A full week, which I wasn't quite expecting. I thought it might be half days leaving the other half for me to settle into my office and get ready for classes to start. Not the case, so I am busy getting the first few weeks of classes more or less prepared. I also learned that there will be a marticulation ceremony on the Friday before classes start. This should be interesting! I'm glad that I bought my regalia for graduation...looks like I'll be getting some use out of it!
