It’s time for another half-ass blog…there’s just not enough time in the day.
* One of my students may have a serious illness. They kept apologizing to me for missing class and for not being focused. All they can think about is the possible diagnosis and what that will mean for them and their children. I told her not to worry about class, and to do whatever she needs to do. I just feel so sorry for her, and it sucks that there’s nothing I can do aside from accept a few late assignments.
*Sunday — went to dinner with Chad’s friends at a Thai restaurant (my 3rd Thai dinner in a week). When we got there, we found that it was (sort of) closed for a birthday party for the owner. They invited us in, though, and we feasted on a fantastic Thai buffet. Most of the foods weren’t things normally on the menu, so I got to try a few new things…for free! It was just a surreal experience, and we all felt a little uncomfortable. I guess we’re not used to such hospitality. So…happy birthday, Wallace!
*Garden — I’ve been spending some time at my parents’ working in the garden. I don’t really have the time to spare, really, but I have to get stuff planted. I’m going down for a couple of hours soon to put in some more veggies. It’s really relaxing, and I can’t wait until everything starts growing.
Other than that, I’m just grading, prepping for final lessons, panicking that I haven’t taught my students anything, studying for my exam (May 2nd), writing (reviews for Estella), and…trying to stay sane.
