Two more days and it begins. THE SEMESTER. Doesn't that seem so foreboding? It's not. Technically classes do not start until the 24th, however my teaching assistant training does begin on Tuesday. I'm looking forward to it. Until this point, I have only advised students and I always approached it in a older sister kinda way. All my students were African American. Now it's going to be different. I will be leading a "discussion" section for a history lecture. I will, of course, be attending the lectures. World history isn't something I keep foremost in my mind. African American history, KMT, and African, we can start talking. But I definitely needs some brushing up for World History. Being a Grad TA is a new role for me. It is like the official beginning of what I hope to be a long and fruitful career as an academic...

Congratualtions and I hope the semester goes well for you. I just recently applied to grad school. I thought of becoming a graduate assistant but didn't go for it. I don't know if I was scared or just didn't think I had what it takes. But from what I've been reading, I know you will do just fine. I have to keep telling myself every day that no one else is going to believe in me if I don't. Just wanted to say good luck though, even though I know you don't need it :)

I'm excited for you! Yeay black academics! Anyway, just found your blog and will become a more regular visitor.
