Personal/Random: Midterms and Snow 
2nd-Mar-2007 02:34 pm
I See You!
Midterms today. Lots of irritated/amused glares tossed at me from students. The snow right outside my sixth-story window is "falling" up. Just beyond that, the snow moves horizontally, left to right, and farther out beyond that snow it falls down in a diagonal from upper right to lower left. The wind is rather crazy out there between the Ardmore where I live and McCormick Hall, the freshman residence hall across from me. I love it.

Were they just evil midterms?

I actually wanted it to be pretty easy if you had done the work, but I'll find out what they thought from the grades or from their conversation next week....

Amused glares, eh? So your midterm questions are...pretty funny?

Oh, how the Oregonian has fallen! So East Coast; so literal....


(Sorry to have been so off the map recently: it's everything I can do to keep up with my life! I have been reading a goodly amount of your entries, even if I'm in too much of a rush to comment or discuss....)

Actually, it's your snooty highbrow eastern-informed symbolism that's difficult for me to grasp. Where I come from we say what we mean and we mean what we say. Stop with the hidden meanings!

If you're reading, you should comment. You're a teacher; you know we all need affirmation! ;)

Only tangentially related, but I never realized how comparatively wee Marquette really is...

Are you here?! I thought you'd give me a heads-up when that conference was happening! Or did you just look it up online? Yes, I suppose it's got some of that compact, urban-campus-thing going. It's what? About 9 by 2 blocks, with some other stuff mixed in...?

Breathe man... I looked it up. I thought BMC was small!

The Johnson Society of the Central Region is meeting April 13-14. More than that, I don't know.

Well, good. My weekend is already fairly full of plans, so I'd have hated to have to break some of those at the last minute so as not to miss the opportunity to meet!
