Getting Down to It

Shhhhh. Don't tell anyone, but now I'm really really going to grade. I've got three hours. Let's see what can be done. And since I need to report back to y'all, at least I'll feel compelled to do something besides absentmindedly checking email and FB.

Get ready, get set, GO!


***Late Update***

So in 3 hours, I was able to get grades done for 5/20. Each one just takes a long time with all sorts of pieces. In the last two hours (from 10pm-12am) I've managed to do all the grades for my other class, except for some small fine details. So at least I won't have much of that hanging over my head, though I will definitely have to try to sneak in as much grading tomorrow (teaching day) as possible. Gah.

I'm taking a break from grading. Then again, I've only graded one essay today. I'm having another lazy day. Ugh. Hope you get more done than me! I was up so late last night, and I really could use a nap. Perhaps I can justify my laziness by saying that it's not really fair to grade my students when I'm so tired and lacking patience. :)

How's it going? Do I need to bring the chocolate, or the whips? ;)

(I have one more draft and two more late assignments to get through before tomorrow. I *will* get all this crap off my back!)

Sis has the right idea...snacks! :)

Best of luck with the rest of 'em.

What do you mean by grading? I don´t know but working and doing things with the computer always takes time. I remember when I travelled to Argentina, I wanted to go out to see the beautiful attractions the city had to offer and I would spend a lot of time in my buenos aires apartment and my laptop or in different sqares with the computers since they have Wi-Fi on every square of the capital, isn´t that great?
I hope I will be able to go back and see the rest!
