I finally got out from under the Java grader job I took on at the beginning of the quarter, as it just wasn't feasible with my current course-load: I found myself putting off homework due to deadlines I had with the instructor I was working for, not to mention that I was even putting off writing in my blog. Something's gotta give.
So, today I'm living and breathing easy, huge weight off my shoulders, working on things I actually want to work on: homework, blog, and special projects. Life is good once again. I hate grading, and now I have a renewed respect for the instructors who grade their own student's work. Worthwile reading over at Mamamusings this weekend on the very same topic.
And on that note, thank you, Professor Liz Lawley, for the beaming feedback on my midterm assignment for the Web Site Design class. Check it out in case you missed it, I spent a good deal of time creating it even though it appears quite simple in design.
I'm even thinking about going to see a movie this afternoon: I've heard that new Jack and Diane movie is just what I need right about now.
Update (11PM): Just came back from seeing "Something's Gotta Give" and it was fabulous! Laughed and cried lots. Hysterically funny and surprisingly soulful.
