Grading exams ain't so bad.

Exam grading is oh so much better than essay grading. ("Let me tell you," to quote FN.) Of course, I'd rather not do it---and next year I most likely won't be---but exams go fast. Fifteen minutes a pop. Sometimes less. And to think some of the students spent a full three hours writing. Ten down; sixty five to go.

The only other thing I did today, other than lots of procrastinating (by reading, cleaning, eating) was head over to EW and CW's place for a birthday party. Good food, and it was nice to see a couple people I hadn't chatted with in a long time.

Silly Facebook is eating up too much of my time. I must cut down on it. As well as cut down on general internet time wastage. There's some great stuff out there---NYRB, for example---and some entertaining sites for when I need a bit of a break, but seriously: I am a grown woman who has serious work to do. Sheesh.

I'm in marking hell at the moment. Essays, not exams. Can't wait for to mark the exams because you're right - they are so much faster.
