so we moved. we are now arranging our stuff. we do not have internets yet. or a washing machine.

there is not much to do yet, as i didn't have access to the school gym yet or anything, so i went disc golfing the last two days. i played the front 9 on monday and the back 9 yesterday. i shot 8 over and 3 over. it's been years since i've played. i still have the power, but have no accuracy. yesterday, on perhaps the easiest hole, a 293 ft shot with no hazards at all, i overshot it by a good 60 ft and was about 10 degrees off the hole. putting is also a bit inaccurate. but, hey, accuracy can be relearned and some people never develop the power. my technique is worse now, but my strength is greater, so the drives go about the same distance.

yesterday we had training for new TAs, i met a bunch of stats people and they were cool. i have an office and a locker at the stats building now. etc etc.

my allergies were going haywire when we arrived. they're slowly calming down. i might have try xyrtec or something to see if it works better than claritin. all this plant life, it can't be good for me. i live kitty-corner from a corn field.

Nothing much else to talk about, so I'm out of here.

best I recall, it was 90% "Don't sleep with your students, ever."

it's more like don't sleep with current students and don't sleep with underage students (ever), along with the usual caveats about not sleeping with crazy people (which could lead to your department getting sued or other bizarre shit).
