Operation laziness is coming to an end. Sigh.
I enjoyed taking time for myself on Thursday and Friday after what had been an exhausting few weeks of back-to-back-to-back deadlines. It was good to see friends during the down days, make yummy food, get a haircut, and just veg out with DVDs for a moment. The weather was nice so I got in a few really nice runs and just enjoyed being outside.
Today, however, the laziness must end as I have grading to do. I don’t know why I am so resistant to evaluating student writing. I am sure there are many complex layers of things going on including authority issues, a sense of not being sure what to do as I can’t fix all of their issues (even the writing things we’ve already gone over), and the fact that I get really cranky after writing the same comment over and over and over again. I shall grade today and tomorrow (Monday too if necessary) and then come Tuesday it will be back to writing the dissertation. Its been a long few weeks away from Chapter 1. I am almost nervous to go back to it. It shall be an interesting time.
I wish the weather happened to be better today, but hopefully all of you are doing something enjoyable today. Back to grading I go!
