Somewhere this week I acquired a rebellious streak--possibly motivated by the letter telling me that my health insurance would take half of each paycheck, should I choose to continue it--and I made a nice sign for my door. I went on to Dictionary.com and borrowed their definition of "adjunct" but I cleaned it up a bit and made sure the examples all fit the academic sense of the word. Then I put it on my door. I haven't been back there since, so I don't know if anyone censored it. I kind of doubt that, since my office is not located in a main hallway and not too many people pass that way on a regular basis.
I've got another post I want to work up in regards to an article making the rounds, since it directly relates to the kind of coursework most adjuncts do, but I need to catch at least some sleep because I have three classes in a row to teach tomorrow. At least I can walk to these and not drive an hour and a half. #AdjunctProblems
