It's the Waiting the Kills Ya....

My students have their final projects due tomorrow. I will have close to 70 projects, mostly 5 or more page papers but also drawings, raps, and I'm not sure what all else, to grade. Then half my kiddies have their final exam on Tuesday and next Friday the other half will take it. So that will be close to 70 exams with 1 comparative chronology (put a list of events in the order in which they happened), 6 short answer questions, and 2 long essay questions per student. I'll have about two weeks from Friday in which to grade all c. 70 projects and 70 exams. Today I am twiddling my thumbs and sitting around being bored because tomorrow's final lecture is written, the final exam is written, and no one has turned in their papers early so I can't start grading those. I'm going to be completely swamped with grading for the foreseeable future and right now I just have to wait for the storm to hit. I hate this.
Feeling: Bored
Exploring: Barnes and Noble


A work in progress

Ah, I see I'll have company in grading jail, won't I? Pity you don't want to take a stack of these exam booklets. . . .

Yeppers! I shall join you starting Saturday, probably. I might get a little done tomorrow, but I actually have a lot of other things to do tomorrow, none of which can be done today. *sigh*
