  1. I can tell which of my students are native speakers and which students are English Second Language based entirely on what mistakes they make while they're butchering the language.

  2. WINNER! Completely in shock to have been awarded a graduate scholarship.

      Thank you all! This is astonishing, seeing as though I did not believe I would be eligible for the scholarship based on my being a UNBC Senator.

      To clarify my response, the university Senate committee on scholarships and bursaries makes the final decision on scholarship winners, and while I don't sit on that committee and would have recused myself if I had been, it does present the appearance of a conflict of interest. In the interest of transparency, I would like to note that I did not vote on the final decision to come forward to the full Senate, and that I didn't actually read the list of scholarship winners, both because I felt the optics would be bad, and because I don't know how to find that information in the Senate archives ^_^

    We start classes at 8:45 and I promise you, my students are still zombies at that hour. Thats not a sleep cycle thing, it’s a teenager thing.

    I shall think about it! That might be a project for the new season, and that's all I'll say.
  5. Just submitted Extra Innings to a publisher. Fingers crossed that it goes better than my thesis submissions do! :P

  6. I see that this wonderful story hasn't received a thread yet. Let the discussion begin. We keep talking about the fact that Declan is eventually going to figure out what Bailey's been doing, but its interesting to note that he's had a few opportunities to ask about it now, and he's chosen not to. I think that Declan already knows what's going on, and he doesn't want to make it more real by talking about it. It's not in his normal character, but I think we've seen that when Bailey's involved that Declan doesn't act in ways he normally acts.

    I agree, the role reversal was a nice touch. It obviously doesn't always happen in the real world, but its important to have balance in a relationship. The fact that Bailey seems more comfortable with himself in an area that we might not expect is a nice piece of literary irony as well.
  8. I GOT THE JOB! HOLY MOLY I GOT THE JOB, NOW THERE'S SO MUCH TO DO TO GET READY! Totally different kind of stress, but its worth it.

      Thanks everyone. I'm amazed by the positive response both here and with my potential employer. I've worked hard to get to this moment, and I hope that I'm able to excel in my new posting.

      Thanks. Like I said on the thread, all things come and go. Change is inevitable, and I suppose its up to me whether it will be good or bad change :)

  10. Thank you thank you thank you! I enjoyed this, all the little stories and tormenting poor Cory with childhood antics. Totally something I would do.

    Thank you for including it. It's nice to hear from my readers. Whoever you are, if you have more questions please don't hesitate to contact me before the 7 foot icicles finish me off. ...But seriously, they're big, and they're outside my window. And they're getting pointy.

    California school district discriminates against gender fluid athlete

    Don't look at me, I exiled myself because there's no Canadian content, and I didn't wanna have topics that only interested me and Steve

    California school district discriminates against gender fluid athlete

    It's just very aggravating. There's no reason for this. Junior does not want to play in women's sports, so it's not like they want to use their predisposition for increased testosterone to give themselves a performance advantage. They want to play in the same men's sports they've been playing in this whole time, so there's absolutely no rationale for this at all. It's just like last year with Mack Beggs. He was born female and wanted to wrestle with the men after he started gender transitioning, and he's still being barred from men's competition. Drives me insane.
  14. California has some of the strongest protections for LGBTQ people and athletes, and yet that hasn't been enough to protect a 12 year old gender-fluid athlete. Junior White was born male and identifies as gender-fluid. The superintendent of the school district has decreed that Junior can only play on co-ed or girls teams because they have started to identify as gender-fluid and more female. Let's be clear. This is a violation of Junior's civil rights, not to mention California state law. https://www.outsports.com/2018/2/8/16989304/junior-white-trans-athlete-football-basketball
  15. Thank you everyone for the kind birthday wishes. They warmed my heart.
