how I couldn’t wait for the marking to come in?
Now I wish the marking could mark themselves. I can literally feel the energy seep out of me, and losing steam marking the prelim papers. I’m marking slowly and steadily, and that saps more energy than ever. Am into the 4th class and I wish fervently that the papers could magically mark themselves.
Perhaps the original plan of marking them all by today was too ambitious. Actually, it is too ambitious, I just couldn’t bring myself to acknowledge that it is too ambitious. I still have 2.5 classes to finish.
I really didn’t want the marking to touch my long weekend. I need a break from everything.
I feel like curling up in a corner.
Watch those papers mark themselves. They can and they will.
(Who am I trying to kid?)
