I have been looking forward to this since last week. It's going to be a long, quiet afternoon. I'm going to take a pair of headphones, and listen to music while I work on writing.
I'm picking up paper 4 today. We have one more paper to do--the research paper--and that will be done over all of the next month. We'll have time to do a little bit of blogging, thank goodness. Because I got an email announcement from the department head that our temporary president had announced that every class must have something for the students to do, and it must be a graded thing to do, during scheduled final exam time.
Um...once my students hand in their research papers, there is nothing else that they need to do for my comp class. I had decided to not do a final, and to turn in grades the first second that I possibly could. The requirement is just a temporary president's attempts to make his presence felt. So, I've told my students that they are required to turn in one extra blog post, due during their final exam time. And the temporary president? Can go fuck himself with a nail-studded baseball bat if he's not happy with that.
I won't be starting to grade today. I'm going to spend today getting organized to start grading. My office hours will be spent writing. I've got four hours--should be able to finish the children's story, and revise it. I'll also be working on revising Pendragon Resurgent.
So, yes, it's going to be a long day. I'm pretty sure it will also be a pleasant one.
