I know it’s been a while. I just thought I’d let everyone know that I’ve just checked my pulse and I’m OK.
Except for the little matter of a 3000 word assignment that was due on October 13 which I was given a 2 week extension for. That means that as of right now I’m only overdue by 6 days, not 20. But I’m not likely to submit it before the weekend which means I may be staring down the barrel of a pass/fail result rather than a full graded result. And then there’s the other little matter of a 2000 word assignment for a different subject that was due on October 20. I didn’t get an extension for that one so it’s super-late. I’m reluctant to plead stupidity because they may use my self-assessment in place of the formal assessment and I don’t think that "stupid" enhances the GPA greatly. But I am alive and I will be finished with these assignments by Sunday, then there will be some funny stories to tell from my 3 week teaching prac in what can only be described as the nearest thing to a ghetto suburb we have around here.
Oops, I guess I should give an explanation of the title for this entry before I go anywhere. When people depart from friends in Australia they usually say things like "see you later". It’s a bit like "I’ll be back" which is famous around the world from Terminator starring Arnold Schwarzenegger, thus, in parting ways instead of goodbye, or see you later, I offer "Schwarzenegger". I’ll be back.
