    It's Thursday. Tomorrow is the first day of an 11-day vacation. Right now I have my planning period, which is supposed to be used for grading tests, etc.

    I have about 20 tests to grade.

    I'm looking at them right now.

    They need to be done before my next class, which starts in about 80 minutes.


    ...


    ...


    I can't do it. I can't bear to look at them.

    It feels like the 26th mile of a marathon; there's .2 to go, and I want to quit.

    Let's see if the Tesla coil wakes me up a bit...

    So, you just gave them all As, huh? :biggrin: One of the other faculty here was lamenting that he had a dissertation to read on the first warm, sunny day we had this week. He wanted to go out playing golf. The rest of us told him he really needs to get his priorities straight...the dissertation defense should have been rescheduled. :rolleyes: We had other suggestions, such as the student giving the defense should carry his golf bag and read the dissertation aloud, or he should just scrunch up the pages and use them for putting practice.
