My Passions

Yesterday, the provost organized a “meet-and-greet” lunch for about a dozen faculty members. Her idea was to create an informal space for faculty to discuss issues with her. As an icebreaker, she asked each attendee to introduce themselves and to say what their passion is. I don’t normally think in these terms, but here’s how I described them:

1) My intellectual passion is Internet law

2) My true passion is my family

3) My secret passion is slinkies
