I'm not going to the diesl. I'm emotionally drained and feeling reclusive. I'll write about today when I write about tomorrow. Let me just say, I hate orientations, I hate feeling akward, and I know I come off as standoffish and defensive when i'm uncomforatable, so be it.

I'll be ok once classes start, this shit just drives me nutz.

I am presenting at 2 orientations today. The first one has 3 new students and the second one has 20+ new students. If I may speak for the presenters at these things, we too are stressed. Although we may do our jobs well, public speaking is not at the top of the list of fun things to do. And I've sat through many orientations with colleagues and listened to how dreadful they sound. I think Human Resources should give public speaking classes for any staff member who has to speak at Orienations or other meetings. We are attempting to tell the students only the really important things and to show our faces so you'll feel welcome to stop by our offices and ask for help. And... everyone is just as scared as everyone else; it's just that some people show it and others hide it well. Enjoy the journey of this new chapter in your life! Congrats!

I dunno... You seemed pretty forward and comfortable when I met you.
