It's been a long week. It's only Wednesday!
This week's Illustration Friday theme is climbing.
Here is a sketch of me climbing to the top of my procrastinated assignments-to-grade. Today. First semester grades being due tomorrow.
I haven't had the best semester of my career. Nothing ever seemed to come together. My students didn't seem to retain anything. I experienced way more resistance to learning than ever before. And I just got tired and didn't feel like grading anything. So a few things were put off. And put off....
I was home sick two days last week. You'd think I'd just knock out that stack in between bouts of coughing up a lung, but bleah. Who wants to grade when snuggled in bed with the "quit coughing on my fur" buddies?
So today, our one-day break between semesters, this was me:
Climbing the stack of ungraded papers. And conquer I did.
