Last day of the quarter, and my classes are done! Neither went the way I'd hoped, neither ended as well as I'd have liked, but after 17 years of unbelievably good evaluations, I'm not going to fret. I had nearly full houses in both classes when students knew that no papers were coming back to them today, no final exam instructions were to be distributed, and no attendance would be taken. I take that as a sign that things were going better than I thought--and in any case, they're done.
Plenty on my plate, still, for both courses: papers to grade, final assignments to write and email out, etc. But it's a very good feeling, wrapping up the in-class portion of the quarter. Glad to be moving on.
