Checking in

Wow is my butt kicked. I haven't felt like this in a long time. It's all good though. My new classes are high energy and the students, all medical professionals, couldn't be a better group of people to teach. Monday, I started a night class as well, and that was a class where I really had to ride by the seat of my pants (am I getting that expression right?) because I received the course materials one hour before the class started. That class was a college continuing education course, so I had two housewives, a teacher, an accountant, a singer and an audio visual guy. Interesting group.

I'm just stopping in so we don't let the blog die. Forgive me, I'll get back to having somewhat of a life this weekend and then I'll stop by to see you. Happy hump day peeps!

I think the phrase is "Fly by the seat of my pants" wonder where that came from?

I'm pretty sure CoffeeDog's right... And as for where it came from, I'm picturing it as a hang-gliding reference...

I think you'll rise to the occasion and I think the challenge will sharpen your skills for even better assignments.
Yes, the expression is "fly" by the seat of your pants.

It's always amazing to me how much the mixture of students really defines the class. I feel like I am pretty consistent, but my classes go wildly different depending on how much energy the students bring.

Good blogs never die. They just get archived.

Your butt is getting kicked and you are riding on the seat of your pants. Sounds like tobacco stains to me.

It sounds exciting, in a positive if exhausting way. Good luck. Hope the rest of the week is copacetic.

I love high energy classes too but man, they do take it out of you sometimes.
