bioteacher:
Hello, all. Thanks for the permission to loaf. I still don't feel good. Spring slump/depression combo is never fun. But I'm here. And I'm trying!

You've all been so busy in my absence. You're amazing!

Today:
Done:
-Drive tired self to campus to meet with pick one: needy/grade grubbing/overly anxious students, administer early final to students who genuinely needed the accommodation, meet with another student about long term career goals, get exams ready for the 8 AM final tomorrow (UGH).
-Bioson to local urgent care about ongoing gut issues. Get excuse for school
-Grade really late paper from should be graduating student. Decide how nice to be about late penalty. Consult with office neighbor about how mean to be.
-Turn in grades for that class

So why do I feel like I got "nothing" done?????

Tonight:

-Help Bioette with homework
-Make dinner
-First chapter of contract project

Ongoing:
-LOR written
-Summer syllabi and CMS prepped
-Annual report.
-grades turned in for last 2 classes

Not even the knowledge that this is the very last of the stuff for this class is helping.

Take boring chapter #1 test
Read boring chapter #2
Take boring chapter #2 test

Eye appt. for MM#1 <- why can't I just get this done? it would take five minutes.

Tonight:
-Help Bioette with homework
-Make dinner
-First chapter of contract project
-Take Bioette to school open house she reminded me they are having in an hour. Sigh. Her teacher and I are already email buddies. I've helped in the room on occasion. But we will go because it is important to Bioette. And it helps me delay the contract work.....


Ongoing:
-LOR written
-Summer syllabi and CMS prepped
-Annual report.
-grades turned in for last 2 classes

Lohai, you can do it.
Moody, If you write my annual report, I'll grade the 5 papers.

Get ready for tomorrow's "secret" thing -- I'd like this to be better prepared, but it will be what it is. I'll do some more of this later.
Make sure I have a decent lesson for tomorrow for the other class that's doing evals
Other? (A bit of grading for tomorrow's class)


I'm going to the gym for a bit. See you later.
