OSF: Songs that People Would Be Surprised I Know

Anyone remember The Jets' "You Got it All"?

What about "I Got a Crush on You"?

Why You May or May Not Be Hearing from Me Much

I haven't been on my blog for a couple of weeks and thought I'd post some updates:

  • You probably won't be hearing from me much because I'm completing the final stages of my doctoral degree. I submit 3 chapters of my dissertation to by committee by the end of this month. Once they respond and provide feedback on those, I will submit the other 3.
  • There are things that people in the final stages of their doctoral degrees must do and I'm doing them. I won't be blogging about that process because it is private, but academics know what this process entails.
  • I'll be co-teaching a linguistic-focused course for K-12 English Education majors (ENG 302) for the first time. That should be fun. I will only be teaching Fall semester 2009. I will be supported by fellowship funds during Spring 2010 and Summer 2010.
Needless to say, you won't be seeing much of me this academic year. I plan to be around some, and won't abandon my blog. But if you don't hear from me, you know why.

OSF: Chaka Khan

Oh Dear. This is a tough one. It's hard not to pick a classic (like "I'm Every Woman" or "Tell Me Something Good") because everyone will probably have one of those. So, I picked a classic and one people may be less familiar with.

The first is "Everlasting Love"

The second is "Precious is Your Name" (performed with Richard Smallwood's "Vision).
