The good = its over! I get a break. And I get to implement changes for next semester. Always an exciting thing to look forward to new classes, new topics of discussion and new interpersonal dynamics.
The bad = grading. So. much. grading. Actually, I’ve cut down from previous semesters based on past experiences. But, there is still a lot of it to do. Also bad, dealing with students who are just realizing that they have not done what it takes to pass the class. It is like they have blinders on all semester and suddenly someone yanks them off and they are shocked to see where they are.
The ugly = my house. It is a mess from Thanksgiving running right into a week of work running right into a weekend work day running right into my DD getting sick running into another week of work. Let’s just say, there are some things that need to be cleaned. Desperately. But, it is getting clean. Slowly, but surely. I’ve got three big bags of stuff to get rid of in preparation to the onslaught that Christmas will be!
