Just finished teaching my last class for the term. Feels soooo goooood.
Well, there are still finals to get through, and the extra-long office hours I generously hold on the days before the finals. And then comes the grading. Sooooo much grading. First the exams. Then the course grades. Then a lull of a few days. And then the inevitable complaints from a few disgruntled students. Graduation is in there somewhere which is actually kind of fun, except for the part about getting up way early on a Saturday.
But then comes summer break. Yaaaay! Since I am not teaching any summer courses, or supervising any undergraduate research, I am very light on the formal responsibilities. Plenty of work to be done, certainly, just not the sort of work that’s done on a fixed schedule. And since most of it is the sort of work I enjoy (writing, research, that sort of thing) it doesn’t really feel like work at all.
And the blogging. Oh yes. There will be blogging…
