    I don't know where you live, but Target had 2 packs for $4 with a limit of 5 packs yesterday in Northeast Ohio. (Fabric)

    Disposables were at Staples.

    About to grade a batch of papers for a summer graduate school course I am teaching online. The grad student's papers are usually well written and pretty interesting compared to some of my undergrad students, but I am still so unmotivated to start reading them. I am expected to give detailed feedback. Here I go!!

    Now I know where to send all of my old grad school papers for a second opinion.

    Good luck!  I hope they’re both interesting and entertaining.  May I ask, what do you teach?

    They were interesting. I just wasn't in the mood. But got them done, and final grades submitted today. Woohoo.

    I am an anthropology professor. However, the graduate class is in the criminal justice department. It was a class on Juvenile Crime and Delinquency. So, it was a very interesting topic. It is the one graduate level class I teach every semester. All the others are undergrad anthropology courses - also interesting. I teach summer classes as well, but load them up in the beginning of the summer, so I have a very easy August before the semester starts back up in September.

    Sounds very interesting.  Do you examine juvenile crime and delinquency through an anthropological lens?

    Both sound fascinating!  For a very brief period I majored in Criminal Psychology but my life ended up taking a different path.

    Yeah it does sound interesting @glowgirl whenever someone mentions anthropology I just think of Margaret Mead. I bet you have one if those jobs where you get to go on sabbatical..
    @hedonist why what do you do now?

    For some of the class, we do. We discuss the various social and cultural theories that may lead to juvenile crime. But some of the class is also looking at criminal justice theory, practical ways to address juvenile crime, etc. It is a very interesting issue with a lot of different facets.

    Margaret Mead is a weel-known anthropologist. There has been some debate in recent years on the validity of her study. Some feel that her methods were flawed and that some of her research subjects in Samoa lied to her. But, she is one of the more well-known anthropologists among people that are not in the field.

    Well, you two...I ended up having a great opportunity with a big retailer (and became their youngest-ever manager at 21!).  After the inevitable burnout, I worked for retail developers - one huge, the other family-owned; both very successful.

    Now, I can't work anymore because of my health.  I miss that sense of productivity, but it's had its side benefits too.

    That is amazing that you got your professional start so young. It sounds like you have had some interesting career paths. I totally understand burnout. For a while I worked in advertising. It was so stressful. When I finally left that job, I made the decision to go back to grad school and study anthropology - which I loved. I have never looked back. Sometimes, our paths just take those twists and turns. I am sorry about your health issues, but it is great that you are seeing the benefits as well. Glass half full and all that!!

    The irony is, I sometimes wish that glass were half full of brandy :rofl:

    My cousin studied law at UCLA.  Just prior to taking the bar, he realized it the profession  wasn’t him and pursued gemology instead. He’s had a fruitful estate jewelry business for more than thirty years now.

    So yeah, you never know! Always best to follow your gut and your heart.

    We're waiting for rain. I zizzed over the couple of tall weeds in the front yard with the weed eater. Otherwise, it's stressed out and there is no need to mow. 95F today. Probably the same tomorrow.

    I don’t blame you. Even with a gap year I bet they’ll learn way more.
