Call me Goofy

Now that the semester’s over…

At our students’ graduation ceremony the other day, a number of us were reflecting on the semester that had just concluded… with some discussion over how the students would evaluate their experience.

And then the website was brought up.

And of course, any professor knows that this is hardly useful information. It’s just a place for students on the extremes to vent their frustration or share their praise.

Not even worth clicking once I get home.

And while I’m there, I’m not even going to look myself up. Why bother?

Hmm. Looks like there are some interesting variations of my name.

Huh. A few from my previous gig and just one from my current one.

See? Not worth the time or effort.


Is that it? Hardly anyone wrote about me.

Oscar Wilde wrote that “there is only one thing in the world worse than being talked about, and that is not being talked about.”

A see a few people from my past referred to me as being “goofy.”

Ohhhkay… I guess I’m eccentric but harmless?

Could be worse.

All right. Back to work.

See you tomorrow!
