So, Reno really hadn't been here at all this semester, with a couple of exceptions. It stood to reason, with him, that almost a week before his final class was probably a good time to make an attempt at that.

Not that there was a hell of a lot of paperwork to be done, what with all of the hard work finished with back in Edge. Tseng had been more or less off his case the whole semester, which was nothing shy of a miracle. They weren't exactly going to be able to start anything new next week, and how the hell did you even give a final exam about public service, anyway? So mostly he was in his office because it felt as though he should be in his office, and as for doing actual office work?

Did drinking coffee and flinging pencils up at the ceiling until they stuck up there count?

[OOC: Open office hours! Probably Reno's last for a long, long while.]
raspberryturk: (Raspberry!)
Reno really didn't come into this office often, as could be evidenced by the fact that it was pretty much bare. Sure, there was paperwork scattered across his desk, phone numbers and forms and letters for people through Edge and the rest of the Midgar continent, some of it all even actually regarding things he needed for class.

This week, of all the people he could be making arrangements with, he was working on negotiations with a rancher outside of Kalm. Things were going pretty smoothly, at least, since he'd done business with the man before.

For once, he was sitting in his office and not firing pencils at the ceiling using rubber band slingshots. Probably for the best, since his door was open in case any parents wanted to stop by and ask him what the hell he was teaching their little darlings.

Reno didn't often actually bother to hold office hours, no. Reno loathed paperwork, and tended to spend more time scribbling dicks in the margins than actually filling out the forms. But this week, he was making an exception, sitting at his desk and occasionally spinning in a circle in his office chair, throwing pencils up at the ceiling and working on a syllabus for the rest of the semester, now that he knew what project his students were going to attempt to pull off in Edge.

To some extent, that involved listening to recent news broadcasts of the area, too. It was probably a good idea to keep on top of shit like monster activity and crime while he was at it. The people themselves seemed to be behaving themselves this week, but monsters had been particularly active, working on trying to gather food while they still could, now that summer was working its way into fall. Edge was located in the middle of a desert, but that didn't mean it didn't experience winter, after all.

... Something Reno probably should have mentioned to the class before letting them all vote on installing water filtration units through the rest of the semester. But, hey, they would cross that bridge when they got to it. Learning experience and shit. It'd be good for 'em.

[Open office hours! I really need to actually post these more often, la.]
raspberryturk: (Talking - Casual EMR2)
You know what Reno had missed? Reno had missed his office. The one with the chair on wheels, and all the little bits and pieces of whatever crap newspaper clippings he had felt like sticking up on the walls. Sure, the pictures were gone. They'd been packed away years ago and he hadn't gotten around to hanging them up again. But the wheelie-chair?

Reno was going to take some time before working on his lesson plan for this week (a long lecture on exactly why the human race was probably going to end up extinct in their hands, thank you chaotic last class of thank-the-gods-that-wasn't-really-doomsday) to just sit down, appreciate being back in his own office space, and...

... spin in circles for a bit. Maybe play bumper cars with his chair against that wall, there, and hope they were thick enough that he wasn't disturbing whoever worked on the other side of it.

Shut up. Office chairs were fucking awesome.

[OOC: Door and post are open! Reno is completely mature, you guys.]

Here's the deal on Reno's Attitude: Just Deal With It workshop for the first summer term, Tuesdays, 2nd period!

Synopsis and Syllabus! )
Class Roster! )

Questions? Comments? Anything that you absolutely OMG MUST see in this class? I'm easy. Reno's easy. I can probably work it in.
raspberryturk: (Chocobo - Costume)
Go figure, I managed to forget about this until now? Bad Shannon! Bad!

In any case, I'm looking for people interested in taking a TA job for Reno's class on BEING AWESOME (it is an important life skill). If anybody would like a crack at the RNG, just let me know here, and I'll let you know tomorrow night, before class signups close.

Comments are screened, and preference will be given to alumni who are in need of something to keep themselves busy for the summer!

ETA: Thanks, the two TA slots have been claimed!
raspberryturk: (Hey a ceiling)
Aww, yeah. Reno could get used to this having-an-office-of-his-own shit.

It wasn't that he had any great plans for it or anything. Hell, he hadn't even really thought about spending any time in here right up until yesterday when he figured that he should show up in order to do that parent-teacher interview crap. But this was the place, the one place in the whole freaking multiverse, where he could walk in, toss his shit on his desk, put his feet up, and never have to worry about Tseng beaking at him about the use of filing cabinets. Or about Rikku's recent invasion of fuzzy orange home decor shit.

Yep. Reno could live with this.

If anybody came in looking for an interview with the Unconventional Tactics teacher today, they'd find him with his chair leaning backwards, his feet up on his desk, and a lazy grin on his face.

Heh. They gave him an office. How friggin' messed up was that?

raspberryturk: (Officey!)
So, Reno was perhaps dimly aware, after an evening spent dealing with every incarnation of every Turk he'd ever known to set foot on the island, that another point of this Parenty... Weekendish... thing was so that the folks (or annoying employers, as he'd had checking up on him while he was a student here) of the students could talk to the teachers, or some crap like that.

Which was why by some miracle, he'd managed to drag his ass out of bed and, after leaving a note for Rikku and Rude that he was going to be doing things that kind of resembled work, he shuffled his way to his office.

... Oh, so that was what his office looked like. Huh. Better than the one he'd had with the Turks. Maybe he'd have to start spending more time in this thing. But for now, he'd worry about what the hell he was supposed to tell any parents who wanted to talk to him about what the hell that 'Doomsday' and 'Rookiehood' and 'Unconventional Tactics' junk was supposed to mean.

There wasn't enough rum in his coffee for this.

[Open to visitors and students and whatever the heck!]

Mmm, I love being able to put up a syllabus for a Reno class. For some reason, it makes me feel comparatively more organized than anything else, like, ever.

So, here's the lowdown on Reno's class this semester!

So.  About That Final...

As any student of Ghanima Atreides knows, she is not big on having her students take written tests. Ever. She is much more inclined to give a practical exam. For the students taking class with Reno, it is very unfortunate that he spent two years studying with Lady Ghanima, because he's picked up some of her good habits.

You're going on a trip!  But don't worry, you'll be back in time for your third period final.

On Monday morning bright and early, students from both classes are going to be meeting at the Causeway in the first period of the day. There they'll hop a portal to a post-apocalyptic Earth at least a millennium from now, where mankind has determined the nature of the suffering of their planet, and have now begun to move forward, to put things back together for themselves without damaging their now healing world.
