The University of Washington System works on academic quarters. Classes start tomorrow (although I start teaching on Tuesday.) This first week is to be delivered remotely.
Over the past 2 years, I was primarily teaching in the afternoon—often as late at 5:40 pm. However, I got assigned an 8 am class this quarter. Pre-pandemic, I rather liked early classes. I considered myself a morning person. I enjoyed watching the days lengthen by noting when the rising sun threw glare onto the whiteboard. But since starting this blog, I have developed a habit of writing late at night.
Something is going to have to change. But apparently not tonight.
