school has started. at the beginning of every semester there are campus wide division meetings. we are a part of the fine arts division at cypress college. picture this. a classroom full of 4th graders. the teacher is at the front of class trying to give a lecture, but the entire class is running around the room, talking among themselves, standing on chairs, and all fighting for attention. now imagine that with people in their 30s, 40s, 50s, and 60s. that's what our division meetings are like. and then there is poor joyce, our dean and our boss, who tries desperately to quiet us all down so we can talk business. tough luck! maybe that'll work in the business division or maybe the math, science, and engineering division, but come on, this is fine arts! she's trying to wrangle a bunch of artists! hahahha! actually, we all eventually settle down and give her our full attention. it takes a while though. and this year, she didn't even have to bribe us with cookies.
