Have you ever seen those shirts for babies that say, ‘I’m the reason we can’t have nice things’? I found out today that I am the reason small groups don’t work.
It was decided that 2.5 hours of class on small groups for our ‘How To TA Sessions’ would work out nicely. I’m not a big fan of small groups but we had to get in small groups to discuss them. Then we were giving our answers out loud to the class and I hadn’t said an answer in my group because I thought it fell under another category. When I mentioned this to someone, they looked at me and said, ‘And you’re the reason why small groups don’t work out’ and they are exactly right! I don’t like sharing information and small groups really aren’t my thing so the comment made me laugh =) But thanks to this class I now have firm hand how to run effective small groups.
Orientation has been pretty awesome. The people here are wonderful, so open, and so welcoming. I was a little people deprived because I moved down here last Wednesday and didn’t have a real in person conversation until Monday so I was thrilled to be around people again. But in addition to classes and sessions, we have been doing other things just to get to know each other which is super fun and I feel just truly happy to be here =)
But you know, there is down time in during orientation and you better believe I pulled that thneed out.
It’s pretty awesome explaining it whenever I pull it out =) And people have quite a favorable reaction to the Fun Fur (who wouldn’t?). I have now officially finished all four arms and am about to cast on for the major connecting piece. I plan on typing up this pattern this upcoming weekend and posting it for your viewing pleasure =)
Andddd the incredible Darci found this link and shared it with me. It’s about crocheting an ideal sphere. It totally reinforces and validates my senior project which looked at the mathematics that can be found in knitting. Too cool =)
