What a beautiful day to take the GRE! Not me, but Sara. Best of luck whupping that test today!
You wouldn't believe it from the now-and-then "wet campus" pics above, but it's been a really dry summer and fall; thus, the lack of really vibrant leaves. This morning I saw some dramatic rivulets (yes! real rivulets!) of runoff on the sidewalk, but I was carrying my usual messenger bag, purse, and umbrella, plus a heavy paper bag of books, so there was no chance of taking a picture. I arrived here pretty much soaked, but things are drying out.
Yesterday I did something I've never really done before. I started grading papers five at a time, rather than sitting down and powering through all of them at once, with only diet coke and gummi worms as fuel. Yes, disgusting and ridiculous. My new approach is to grade a few papers a day, so that my handwriting doesn't completely fall apart somewhere near L. I also don't have those long stretches of time any more. We will see how this pans out.
Anyone else experiencing a soggy Tuesday? Care to commiserate?
