some horn tooting to follow

so if self-congratulation turns you off, you can skip to the next paragraph. i was very excited today to get a little teaching recognition type award for being rated in the top 10% of composition instructors. i'm mostly proud because i worked my ass off last semester to pass prelims and still managed to be a good enough teacher to get high ratings from my students. i was one of two people to get a 5 out of 5 and one of 12 to get a 4.9 and god damn it if that 4.9 doesn't still sit wrong with me. but whatever, out of 150 or so teaching assistants i think i did pretty fucking good. being good at your job is fun and getting some recognition really feels like the best kind of justice.

in other news, the weather's shit and i'm bored of the reading i have to do for tomorrow. also, i'm starving. trying to lose weight is lame.
