I'm writing this while watching you watch the Derrida documentary. I have no idea whether you are following, are distracted, or are doing something else entirely. I've sketched a few questions as threads. Respond to each in fifty or so words. Due tomorrow.

Leaving on a Jet Plane
Mood:  lucky
Now Playing: Jet - Look what you've done
Topic: Announcements
Well, it's official. I will not be at NBCA next year. Instead I'll be living in beautiful South Carolina (I know, I'm a bit hesitant too). I got into the PHD program in Rhetorics, Communication, and Information Design at Clemson University (Go Tigers!). If you're curious about what exactly that means, you'll find more information at the following links:

Program homepage
Syllabus for second semester class
CV for the head of the department

I'll be teaching there as well and I would like to thank you all for the training you've giving me, both as a scholar and as a teacher. I will always cherish my first year students. Good luck on college and God bless.
-Mr. H
