One step forward, two steps back. That’s what this time of semester always feels like. Just when I feel like I’ve almost nailed this pile of marking, it suddenly goes and grows to monstrous proportions. Well, not quite monstrous. That was an exaggeration. But it never quite goes away. A bit like Arnie, my little terminator-style pile of marking is always back for more. Just when you think it is dead, it returns for another round.
The students had their written exams today. Thus, the sudden marking infestation. Last night, things to mark were so scarce I actually sat down and watched a movie. ‘The Blind Side’ with Sandra Bullock. Loved it. Wouldn’t have thought I would get into a movie about gridiron, but there you go.
Anyway, I’m going to try and tackle the miraculously self-replenishing supply of marking now, before hitting the sack early. I heard there will be no power again tomorrow, which means it would be wise to try and complete then input the student’s exam results tonight. Wise. Ugh.
