My teaching semester is almost finished. I will soon be able to start posting essays again on a less haphazard basis. Big Lie Number Three is drafted and almost finished, so that essay should go up soon. I appreciate the patience people have shown in my not writing as much as I should. And, I very much appreciate the encouragement I have received to keep writing.
Since writing last, I also had another medical adventure. I have mostly recovered from that and it should not impede writing once the exams are finished. Now I only have to figure how to pay for the privilege of being chronically ill. For those who wrote to me and I did not respond, it was because I was unable to respond or I had to focus my energy/abilities on keeping my job. My neglect is not intentional.
This week we have finals exams to inflict on the students and then a lot of grading (which shows that part of Purgatory may be here on Earth!). Next week we will get all of the whining from kids who should have studied, should have come to class, etc. It is amazing how serious people get about their studies the week after finals compared to the week before.
Now I am off (literally) to give an exam…Yikes!
