The last week of classes is winding down.
+ I’m all caught up on grading!
– I gave a few students permission to turn in late assignments, due today, so I’m not all caught up.
– I’m giving a lab final in cell biology this morning. so I’m not all caught up.
– I’m giving a unit exam to my intro students tomorrow, so I’m not all caught up.
– I’m giving two final exams next week, so I’m not all caught up.
It’s like you can make a few strokes towards shore, but the current is unending and fierce, and I’m already worn out. Grades are due on 21 December, so that’s my goal, I just have to keep paddling and hope I don’t drown before I get there.
Hey! Maybe there’s a beautiful mermaid waiting for me at the bottom, with a golden pirate’s treasure, so drowning won’t be so bad.
