Good meeting with a student this morning. He wants to work on a boat but wants to use financial aid, which requires getting academic credit. Since he's a business major, I suggested setting up a directed study with a prof here, and in addition to working on the boat arranging to learn from the skipper how the boat is run. He was like, "Oh, that's an AWESOME idea! This sounds great! I'm so glad I came in!"
Masquerading as a normal person day after day is exhausting.
