Oh, THAT Content..

All of my custom post types (measurements, skills, demos, and downloads) are now back online and should show up with all their pictures intact.

In my copious free time, I will return to working on the overall look and feel of the site.  ;)  I wouldn’t say I breezed through undergrad, but it was no where near this taxing.  I think the trouble is that grad school assignments don’t have an actual question in them.  They raise a series of points, and strongly imply that you ought be doing something serious with these points, and it you were just a hair smarter, you would see the obvious intent of this assignment and address that.

I thought I was a mean teacher..?  Good gawd!  I am barely at hobby-ist-level sadism.  I’m in awe.  I’ve actually found myself being significantly more sympathetic to my students so far this semester.  I asked them today if any of them got to do anything other than homework over the weekend, and admitted to being jealous when some said yes.  Then I told them that I was happy to be their, so that their joy and creativity to replenish what my last paper sucked out of my soul.  And I’m actually enjoying the class in question!  OMG, what is it like if you hate the class???  Guh!

So here is my clue to you, all students: find out which teachers are going for their next degree.  Take classes from them.  They hate homework as much as you do, don’t have time for major-nitpicky-grading, and probably feel your pain.  (Or they’re angry and just want someone else to suffer – it’s a mixed bag.)  I mean, unless you’re in for a terminal degree.  Then there’s really no applicable teacher-selection strategy…  I am sad that that is the obvious next step, if I survive the MBA experience.

    Dear Missa; I love your site and information. I managed to see the pictures of the Platter Tutu you made, and how lovely it is, but all the pictures of the older posts are in a format that I –and my computer– cannot access. So much loverly information, and the pictures which would be beeyoutifully helpful, are just not there. One of these days I’ll get my computer nerd daughter in law to tell me what I need to do. I’ll promise to sew her something . But I will likely need to alter a pattern to do so. That should motivate her to help me. Thanks for doing what you do!

      Hi, Janice,
      I don’t think it’s your computer. You’re one of a handful of people who’ve mentioned the same problem. I’m looking into it. Sorry!
