Semester end is drawing near…quickly!
I can’t believe that statement is true. I feel like I just started this semester but I just updated my class schedules through the end of the semester and it is right there in front of us. Staring me down. Daring me to continue to be behind. This semester has been a little rough and tumble. Some of my classes have been great, but a majority of them have been hit and miss. Some of that is traveling has required that I miss more classes than usual. Some of it has been trying to use a new book (why? why do I do this to myself?). Some of it has been lack of focus because I’ve been somewhat stressed out about my mom’s health and the puppy and other things. But, for whatever reason, this semester has not been my best. But, such is life. I have done some things better than in the past and others need a lot of work. But, life is a work in progress and thankfully, I get a “do-over” every semester! I’ll be making some much needed changes to my classes for next semester and hopefully alleviating some of the other stress in my life as well over the summer months. The Fall will bring a new start and a better semester.
Despite all that, I do have a handful of weeks left this semester (I will be traveling for one of them) and I need to do my best to catch up with grading and end with a positive note for my students’ sake (and my own sake). So, that is where I will be focusing my energies in the coming weeks.
