Well, looks like it’s time to get blogging again.
This semester I’m leading the Tea Colloquium. As a second-semester sophomore, I’ve only been in two colloquiums before, and both were highly non-traditional (if anything about colloquiums can be called traditional, that is) — the Apocalypse Planning Contingency and the Doctor Who CM. I will be the first to admit that I am not exactly sure what I’m doing. I mean, I’ve drafted a syllabus and know enough about tea to successfully fly by the seat of my pants for a few weeks even without one, but this whole “leading a group” thing is new for me. We’ll see how it goes. I’ve got twelve good-natured people in the course who seem to be more than willing to put up with my caffeinated ramblings, so that, at least, is reassuring.
Had an excellent talk with some of my group members about how we might be able to make this blogging thing more exciting. I have the feeling that this may be a recurring theme in the coming weeks.
Tea of the week: London Cuppa English Breakfast. Being a proper British brand of tea (or so I thought), I was expecting it to be stronger, but it’s comparatively mild after quite a lot of steeping. Goes nicely with a bit of milk, though I wish I had something other than skim.
