Adjunct status be damned, as of last night I consider myself to be a full-fledged professor. Why? Because even though I had no access to the internal network (where all of my class resources are located), and no access to a copy machine (to copy the resources I'd brought with me), and no dinner in my belly, and no agreement as to which classroom was actually hosting my class, I still managed to fill three hours of course time. Phenomenal. Of course, I probably seemed like a bit of a dingbat at times, and we'll see if everybody shows up again next week, but I'm considering it a win.
