I am pretty worn out already this semester with my new schedule and the uncertainty going on in my life right now. But for all of that, I am really enjoying both IVC classes, which have gotten going in earnest now.
Having cut way back on the amount of homework, I think I can relax more than I used to and just teach, rather than being a harried grader of homework that wasn't, for the most part, really necessary.
The only thing that concerns me is that it would be good to have some grades in before it's too late to drop the class easily, and I probably won't. The first paper will come in during the 5th week sometime, or even after. However, there will be some important writing assignments leading up to that.
