I had my first faculty meeting at USC today, and I've already been roped into committees and such, which I hope means we meet every few weeks and eat bagels. But if we end up having to do stuff and things, I guess I'm game. After all, do you know how important stuff and things are? Stuff and things are an integral part of so much. Stuff and things must be done!
Look at all the talented people I met! It's a pretty impressive line-up of working writers who are teaching in the program, so I feel like I'm in good company—although, whenever I join a new institution, I always choose one person to be my archnemesis. (Don't you?)
Who shall it be this time? God, I have so much work to do before classes begin.
And, as is apropos of this blog, I would mention the, ahem, "scenery," but that would be inappropriate! I am now a respectable member of society!
