#SomethingOnSunday: Grading (!!!) and New Acquaintances

Will I fall asleep before I finish writing this blog post? Maybe! I am super exhausted–probably because of the time change. It could also be because I didn’t take a nap today or that I did so much grading and my brain is tired.

How much grading did I do today? I’m so glad you asked!

I finished an entire class set of papers, and it didn’t suck or even take that long. I don’t know if it’s because the assignment is more straightforward or my rubric is so baller or my students did better. It is probably a combination platter! The point is that I graded today, and it didn’t suck.

(This gif is highly inaccurate by the way, though my students and I both wish it were true.)

So that’s my part one of Something on Sunday.

My part two is that I had brunch with two strangers today because we all have a mutual friend in common, and she knows two of us are relatively new to the area (I’m the newest, obviously), so she emailed us and basically told us all to get together. So we did! And they are officially in my phone with their companies listed as “Friend of S.” Because that is the work.

Brunch was nice. My pancakes were meh, but the company was good. And! I got a little something to send my daughter…which I have to remember to go to the post office so I can do that tomorrow.

I will probably see and/or hang out with these people again, so I would say that is a win. Good job, S! You are a rockstar (for more reasons than just this, obviously, but today I celebrate you especially for this).

Be like S, people. Connect people who may be drifting alone in the lonely sea of a big move in a new city. Remind them that they have something awesome in common: you.
