hristmas is over and everyone is getting ready for the New Year, and I can’t freakin’ believe that I’m still grading! Aaaargh. I suppose if I had just sat down and focused last week–forget last minute Christmas shopping, screw Christmas eve, chuck Chrsitmas day presents–I suppose I would be finished by now. But nooooooooooooooooo. Two students are frantically packing for Europe, another two are nervous about their upcoming journeys to Japan, another is likely lamenting how boring the back roads of Virginia can be. But I’m telling ya’, I’d trade places with ya’ in a heartbeat…
I’m finishing tonight, even if it kills me.
