Blooming Tree

Originally uploaded by aimeedars

Campus is beautiful, and some classes are even meeting outside. I often have students ask if we can go outside, and I always say no. There are lots of good, legitimate reasons – the distractions, the loss of powerpoint and the chalkboard, the difficulty with writing space. But, the most pressing reason is that I don’t like it when classes meet outside. Even when I was in college, I dreaded if people asked if we could go outside, and I hated it if the professor agreed. I didn’t like the wet grass or the wind or the bugs.
