It is January 2017, and time for another Virtual Coffee Date. Go ahead and grab a hot beverage, and I will tell you what has been happening.
If we were having coffee right now, I would tell you that my trip to see my family was fairly successful. I didn’t have any seizures, and there were no trips to the ER. I think it helped to set up an appointment with my neurologist before my flight, so I knew what my depakote level was before leaving. The weather cooperated most of the time. In previous years, snow storms were a problem.
If we were having coffee right now, I would tell you that I got into a political argument with my dad. We have different points of view, and his reality is different from mine. After a few minutes, I just stopped and agreed to disagree.
If we were having coffee right now, I would tell you that I am currently teaching an online science course. It is taking up a bit more of my time than I thought, but I guess that happens with all new jobs. I have had a few students withdraw already and it is making me feel bad. I try not to take it personally, but am not succeeding.
If we were having coffee right now, I would tell you that my courses at my local college are about ready to start. They are similar subjects that I have taught before, so I am not anticipating any trouble. My first class is tomorrow. I will make sure to let you know what my first impressions are. Many times first impressions are incorrect ones.
If we were having coffee right now, I would tell you that I have thinking of changing my blog a little. However, I am not sure in what direction to go in.
If we were having coffee right now, I would ask you how your holiday season went. How did it go?
