I am boring…

Last Monday I started my job instructing at the college. I spent a lot of time preparing, because I have never taught before and I didn’t want to look like a moron.

About 20 minutes into my class, I realized that… I am boring. I was bored listening to myself, so I can only imagine how boring my students thought it was. Granted, the subject is not exactly inspiring, but I thought I might be mildly entertaining.

I am not.

Fortunately for me, students are used to sitting for hours and listening to boring people.

    Ahh Incredipete, don’t be so hard on yourself. I think you’re very entertaining. But you can’t help it if the information you’re trying to get across is not.
    I’m sure the semester will get better as you move along. I’m getting back from Aus Sunday so we should get together for some photos etc.
    Much love.

    Yep. You’re boring. When you bore yourself, you know that you are boring. Because my 1978 New Year’s resolution was to not give out unsolicited advice, I won’t give you any pointers, but if you do want some tips to jazz it up, let me know (on or off line) because I just facilitated a 3 day training for work and, not to toot my own horn, but I basically got a standing ovation. I’d tell you more but then it would just sound like bragging and as we know, I’m FAR too humble to commit such an egregious offense such as that. (Wow, did he just use the word egregious? He must be smart AND good looking)
