ok, so teaching doesn't always suck.

i have this student. he's smart, he works hard, but he has a LOT of grammar problems. and just sort of problems getting his point across in writing.

he asked me for help on a poli-sci paper of his. and out of the goodness of my heart, i totally marked up the crap out of it. hoping, somehow this would make him a better writer. and it kinda did. his next paper had far fewer of the same kind of errors.

anyway, i got this email from him tonight:

Hey Miss B, I just wanted to thank you once agian for helping me out with my paper, Im proudly to say that I got a B+ on it. Thank you soo much, it is really going to help my grade out!!.

awww. i did good.


p.s. have sea world fireworks started up again so soon? it is a bit after 9:50. and it is nearly summer. wow, they are a lot louder here than at my apt. makes sense. i'm a few miles wester. but i swear these are the loudest fireworks in existence. what others can you hear over an ENTIRE city?

i have half a mind to walk into class tomorrow and just be like "do this!" and not have an outline. for lo, i am tired. and i don't feel like planning stuff. it's already nearly 4pm. my work juices stopped flowing a while ago. mostly i want to make icons of pretty stuff. and i haven't been icon inspired for a while....

one can't do the mid/late semester float thing when one is a professor. that fucking sucks. just three more classes till spring break and i have no desire to take them seriously. but i have to. cuz i'm all like a grownup n shit. and next tuesday i get observeded. to make sure i'm doing my job. tho apparently it's not evaluative. just gathering info. meep. my observer is kinda a cool guy. i'm thinking of asking him to read my thesis. because i need a reader outside my department. and i don't know any non-english teachers.

but now, the rumor is that we can't even have two MFA faculty as our readers. which makes NO sense at all. only ONE creative writer on a creative thesis committee? that's crap.

but i am officially advanced to candidacy for graduation now. which means, play my cards right, and i'll have an MFA by the end of the year. i'll have three almost totally useless degrees! yippee for me.

right so. work. i guess. stupid work stuff eating into my wasting time time. stupid. bah.

it's 3:47pm. i've worked 6 hours and 1 minute at my paying job (school has yet to pay me, though they should have 12 days ago, have to see about that). i've planned tomorrow's class (hopefully i have enough, if not, oh well, fuck 'em). i've made oodles of copies for said class (*hugs laser printer*). i've even devised reading questions for the little bastards, in hoping that they actually read. and i've had half a peanut butter and rhubarb strawberry jam sammich.

not bad for a day's work.

i still have to plan out the next few weeks, but i'm thinking that may wait until i'm frantic tomorrow evening. or something. i dunno. maybe i can not nap after class tomorrow and instead work on it. cuz napping on tuesdays messes me up a bit cuz then i wake up and hurry on my poetry stuff. oh except tomorrow i have to go (back) to school early because i have meetings with my advisor. one on poetry stuff and one on admin stuff. hopefully i can get my program of study squared away. who wants to take bets?

but point is, i think i'm pretty much done for today. now i can indulge in the shows i've missed. and hopefully not forget to watch heroes. hear that, karen? WATCH HEROES! it's new, right?

alright.
