Grading Sucks

I think I’ve mentioned this only a few thousand times, but I hate grading papers.  I feel obligated to assign work to my students, but it means I also have to grade it.  I had what I thought was an ingenious plan this year by having daily “bell ringer” activities at the beginning of class.  It would be an easy grade that accumulates throughout the week, but it turns out it takes time to go through 4 classes and assigning points for each entry.  I spent from 3:30 until 9:30 grading papers and getting all my grades updated.  I still haven’t given any grades for yearbook, but I’ll work on those grades tomorrow. 

I slept late this morning, did some laundry, and loaded the dishwasher.  Didn’t clean my desk and living as I planned, but I did pay bills.  I goofed off online for a while, but I did get one of my homework assignments done.  I thought it was relatively easy as it was using search engines to find information.  I have to complete a post for one of my classes by tomorrow but I’ll do that during ISS tomorrow afternoon.  Nothing like waiting until the last moment for things.

Not much to tell today – just not ready for another week of school.  Wish it were Thanksgiving already.
