Another Couple of Weeks
By dragging out the papers this semester I have made tons of work for myself at a time when I am almost at the end of my strength and endurance. This often happens at the end of the semester, and it is happening more than usual this semester for some reason. Perhaps I was already worn down at the beginning of the semester because of all I had gone through in the summer, and now my fatigue is becoming more patently obvious. It's a new curriculum too, so that always makes a difference. I just have to force myself to prepare my classes this week and deal with the students' problems writing their final papers. Then I am left to grade them. Then comes the break.
