A quick break from grading

I've got two BIG things due in about two weeks, and another in one week.

What was I thinking? Why do I say yes?

On the other hand. I've been accepted to teach overseas for a semester next year. Now I have to learn another language!

I've been practicing my one usable foreign language a lot lately, chatting with my friend's mother-in-law, and today I actually realized that my ease is picking up again.

Sometimes life levels out. But this semester feels like I'm on a very uphill learning curve. Everything's a challenge, new classes, new committee tasks, social stuff.

Back to grading.


  1. Congratulations! That's fantastic news.

  2. Congrats on going abroad - so fun...

  3. Yes, a huge congratulations on your semester of teaching overseas next year - that's wonderful!

  4. Great news! I hope the gig is somewhere wonderful.

    Grading sucks, I must agree.
