OU Orientation: My Scripps schedule for Fall 2012

25 Aug

After three months of worry and two days of orientation, I finally have a schedule for my fall semester at Ohio University!

My Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays will be dedicated to the Multimedia Reporting class I’m set to teach this fall.

While I will only teach one Monday lecture, the class meets from 11:50 a.m. to 12:45 p.m. each week. I’ll be handling a lab section of the course, which meets from 7:30 to 9:20 on Wednesday and Friday mornings. As happy as I am to keep the majority of my day free, I am not looking forward to waking up so early.

My Tuesdays and Thursdays, however, are pretty busy.

My first class, Research Methods, meets from 9:10 a.m. to 10:20 a.m. Mass Communication Theory immediately follows and stretches from 10:30 a.m. to 11:50 a.m. I have a bit of a break before my last class of the day, Ethics, Internet and Society, which meets from 1:30 p.m. to 2:50 p.m.

I am also enrolled in two one-credit hour classes — Introduction to Graduate Study and¬†the Scripps Journalism Teaching Seminar. The department head is supposed to look over student schedules this week to determine when everyone is available to meet. The one-hour classes meet once a week, so it shouldn’t be too inconvenient regardless of when they’re scheduled.

I’m taking 15 credits, so I expect to be pretty busy for the next four months. Regardless, I’ll make sure to keep up with this blog to update everyone on my academic endeavors. Addam and I are both very excited to get started this Monday.

Keeping House: Marriage and moving in Athens, Ohio

21 Aug

Hello all!

As it’s been a hot minute since my last post, I thought I’d take tonight to update my loyal readers on what I have been up to since my move to Athens, Ohio.

Addam and I have moved into our own little home at 47 1/2 South May Avenue, and after a few weeks of lugging loads and unpacking boxes, it is finally starting to feel like home. We don’t have a lot of extra storage space, but we’ve made do with what we have, and it’s coming together quite nicely.
