A little bit of good news

1. I don't have to fill out a FAFSA this year. Because I. am. almost. done. with. my. degree.

My, that feels good to say. Now I just need to remove "almost" from that sentence.

2. I found out today that I'm being nominated for a university-wide award for graduate student teaching. Fantastic Adviser sent a message out to the department's undergrad listserv asking if any students wanted to share any thoughts about my courses, and she said the response was overwhelming. I heart American Studies students and faculty; I wish I could have earned my degree in that department, but alas! alack! they have no grad program (hence my opportunity to teach for them).

More good news on that front: Whereas I usually struggle to fill my summer courses because there just aren't enough students around to really warrant holding them, I already have 25 signed up for this spring's offering on life in the 1890s. Yay!

Well, I'm not surprised, because how fabulous is a course on life in the 1890s?! I want to take it myself.
