how cool am i?

27 10 2009

one of my current students approached me today to ask if i would be willing to be the official adviser for a club. i’ve been asked before to sign petitions to try to organize [water]-pong tournaments and promote other just-plain-silliness before, but this was a real request, with a real form to fill out. “maybe,” i said. “what’s the club?” she turned the page so i could see where her round bubble-letters spelled out “SUNYIT Gay Straight Alliance”; i also noticed the names of a former student or two on the petition. my first response was to look up at her a bit stunned: “we don’t have one?” “we used to,” she said, “but i think everybody in leadership graduated and nobody stepped up, so…” “so now you need a new one.” “exactly.” i had her come back to my office so i could read the form just for the purpose of knowing what i was agreeing to, and then you can bet your boots i signed right up. i’m an adjunct, mostly; i didn’t see any fine print disallowing that, but i wouldn’t be too surprised if somebody says i don’t count and they have to find somebody else.

but still. they chose me. i think a little bragging right here is warranted. so: right now, i am totally cool.
