Real Syllabi

A while ago I posted a series of imaginary syllabi. Now that I will actually be teaching I have real syllabi. The first one is in the previous post. If anybody has any constructive criticism please put it in the comments or send me an e-mail. I can be reached at pohlcat [the at sign] rocketmail [the dot] com.

You seem to be entirely focussed on work, a typical career-oriented academic, the exact opposite of what I am.

Are there pics of yourself on this blog?

May, thanks for commmenting again. Right now I am focused on moving across the world and starting my new job. It will be my first time in Central Asia and my first teaching job. So recently that has dominated my blog posts.

But, for the last couple of years I was unemployed and living in the desert. I think this blog tends to skew a lot more in the direction of academia than my life in general. I do not blog much about personal stuff because I think it would bore most readers.

There are some pictures of me in the archives. Look under February 2006. There is a pretty good one of me smoking a hookah posted on 6 February 2006. It is from 5 November 2005 when I was last in London.

Again, thanks for commenting and I hope you continue to read this blog.

Now I've seen it, thanks. How old are you? You don't have to answer, of course.

I am 36 years old.

For some reason, I thought you were a "child" but that was not consistent with the photo.
I'll send you an e-mail in a minute so that you see my e-mail address.
