Something's gotta give


| Comments (4) | Views (148)

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.

Hey Jay, did you know you can set the text areas to be not editable? That way people can't delete content on your page (not that it really deletes or anything, but...)

And I posted back to you on my blog, but Prof. Whittington wrote me saying he didn't need me to grade anymore as he'd hired someone else, his grader from last year :) I'll see you tomorrow, I'm sure.

Have a good day relaxin!

I've only had good experiences grading, usually I am asked if it is too much to take care of - everyone I've worked with sees it as a student opportunity to make some extra money on the side, not a means to dump the responsibility.

Then again, having the extra free time is certainly nice. :-)

I can't even begin to tell you just how nice it is! =)

Grading is tough, mainly because I feel that students should get feedback from the hard work they put into the assignment. That is how I approached every paper I've graded. If you can work it into your schedule without it affecting your coursework, all the more power to you, I just simply don't have that kind of time this quarter.

Thanks for your feedback Carlo!
