Actually, I’m not sure what’s so merry about it, but that’s the saying, so there you go.
Finals finished up this week. I got my grades in yesterday, and spent today dealing with all the emails from the students who weren’t happy about their lab grades. I did have one student who sent me an email telling me I had done more than teach her physics this semester, I had taught her to believe in herself. That’s the sort of thing you frame. I guess some days it really is worth chewing through the straps.
I’ve been getting a little reading done, which I’ll blog about over the next few days. I’m hoping to finish Sworn in Steel by Douglas Hulick tonight, but I may not be able to stay awake that long. This is the sequel to Among Thieves, which was one of my favorite books the year it came out. One of the next things up is The Silver Stallion, the next volume in the Ballantine Adult Fantasy series. Other than that, I’ll be trying to get as many things read as possible. I’m a bit behind on what folks have been sending me, so I’m going to read amongst those titles as the fancy hits me, whether it’s fantasy, science fiction, or crime.
There are some other things, but I’ll save mentioning them for another post.
