I am very grumpy today. I can't remember the last time I felt this down and grumpy. Perhaps it was grading online research papers and discovering that so many of them were so bad. Perhaps it was talking to my department chair about a plagiarism case. Perhaps its feeling as if I've been grading and grading and still I don't have any of my courses finished (because the online class is so labor-intensive to finish).
Whatever. I am irritable and trying to shake it.
I think things will get better after I submit grades for the online class and for the other comp class. Then, it's just some literature finals and things should go more quickly.
Perhaps this port and chocolate will help.
Or, perhaps, watching this episode of Independent Lens about the Holocaust will put things into perspective. It profiles a guy who says, "I had a very unique Holocaust experience. I was in the camp with my wife and my girlfriend. It was very difficult." It's a love story.
