as an addendum
the number of participants is higher than expected as quite a few could not preregister. great. plus nobody from my working group either can or wants to teach this class, my boss does not want to as well. and she is not boss-y enough to demand it from someone. great. the only solution is that i teach this class, split into two sections. unfortunately they cannot be split evenly. so i might turn out with one smaller group around 30 and one still with 60. wonderful. this will be such a horrible semester. and i really have had hopes for the progress of my thesis.

not anymore.
