The provost of the university is having the big faculty recognition dinner and I need to RSVP. Part of me is curious and wants to go; part of me is intimidated? It's fancy, at the National Press Club, high class invites and while I've worked hard to get here, part of me is like...do I *belong* here? Trying to make sense of it all, I guess.

Baked oatmeal people: Looking at a couple recipes online. What's your method? There's one where you mix up the dry ingredients in one bowl, the wet in another, combine and bake.

Can you retrain yourself to change you eating habits? I can skip breakfast, eat a light lunch and then at like 8pm eat like a member of the Night Watch on Game of Thrones. o_O I'd love to start the day with breakfast being my largest meal and then pace myself with smaller meals through the rest of the day, maybe eating a total of 5 or 6 times.
Teaching two classes today, 1) a basic comm. writing class and 2) a research comm. incorporating data and demographics, etc. Was freaked out about the research class but knew it was the second and later class. Went to the first class...IT WAS THE RESEARCH CLASS. Welp. Recovered nicely and handled it well though I was thrown off.
Search committee conference call from home because of the snow day. I realize there's a level of nervousness because interview, but the rambling and...not answering the question? Mercy. *scribbles notes*
