in which a countdown is nearly all that keeps me going

It was just one of those super 'blah' days yesterday. I planned a lesson for the wrong reading assignment in my afternoon section and had to improvise--very very poorly. I hate feeling like I am wasting my students' time, and I certainly was yesterday. But we aren't allowed to merely let them go; I don't even think we're allowed to let them go something like 10 minutes early. And in my morning section when a group of students were leading discussion I finally realized how obnoxious some of the students are during discussion when they talk out of turn and only tangentially on topic. When I'm at the front of the room almost any discussion seems good, but as a participant I was struck with... well, very strong negative feelings. I would hate my class if I were in it!So that needs work.

Luckily, there are only 8 days until I meet R in Minneapolis, and plenty of work to be done on various papers before then to keep me busy and productive.

Honey. If you were a size six, you would look skeletal.
