Back to the grind

November 25, 2017

Well, tomorrow is Sunday, which means it’s back to reality. Which is just a depressing way of saying I have a ton of grading to do.

Also, it’s that time of the semester when grading is basically all I’ll be talking about because there are only two weeks left (!!!!).

I’m not ready.

I mean, I am definitely ready for the semester to be over, but I am not ready for the end of the semester–mostly because of all the grading. But also because I need to write final exams and rubrics and also, of course, grade.

Always with the grading.

I did have a lovely weekend with my friend and her family, and I did get some grading done and a rubric written (on Thanksgiving itself, no less). So I am definitely grateful for the time with delightful people and the space to get work done. Also, let’s be real: I got a much needed mental break by taking the past two days completely off.

But, as Shang from Mulan says, “Tomorrow, the real work begins.”
