It's that time of year...  No, I'm not talking about Spring or Easter, Passover, Beltane or one of the holidays we celebrate during this season.  I'm talking about the fact that it is once again time for my annual Performance Evaluation here at Salt Lake Community College.  For me, as I'm sure it is for most of us working stiffs, it's kind of like my employer's version of a dental exam: the "dentist" (my boss) and I both spend a lot of time forcing a smile while talking about cavities (areas in need of repair) and gum disease (areas in need of changes in my behavior).  We also talk a lot about how I can achieve better dental health (goals).  I give my own assessment about how well I've been brushing (up on last year's goals) and flossing (cleaning out the bad habits).  My boss does a lot of probing and drilling while we negotiate on what changes I am going to make in my routine for this coming year - the objective: a healthy mouth (me) which, in turn, contributes to a healthy body (the College).
