Friday Afternoon Confessional: Grading
I confess that grading sometimes puts me in a bad mood, but I managed to get through an imposing pile of papers this week.
I confess that I received some misinformation about Cornel West being Kanye West’s uncle and that I have passed it on to my students when the occasion has arisen. This time around, someone looked into it, proving my claim to be unfounded. I confess that I have no idea who gave me the idea that they were related, but I was very confident it was true.
I confess that the winter weather vastly increases my desire to sleep, and more specifically, not to wake up at the early hour required for my morning classes. At least now the days have lengthened enough that the sun comes up before I start walking to campus.
I confess that the super-cold temperatures have produced one benefit for me: my sidewalk is completely free of ice, as there has been no run-off from the roof. Next week will apparently be warmer, presumably ending this idyllic state and also saddling us with gross, dirty islands of snow in the middle of muddy, dead lawns. Ah, February! Is there any month so cursed by God?
