Seemed like a great way to start my first full week at USD. Y’all, I’m so nervous, for some reason! This is the fourth time I’ve taught this particular class as a professor, but I’m just a bit nervous about all of it, how it’ll turn out in this new context, and trying to get a feel for teaching back at home. Fingers crossed! This breezy dad on vacation look is more relaxed than I feel today. Also, I’m wearing one of my favourite rings ever, which was an impromptu gift from a dear friend in Johannesburg. It’s an outsized leaf and feels so extra that I can’t take myself TOO seriously.
