Today, I really worked my butt off - almost literally a 17-hour day. This might well be the busiest week of the year for me, as all the World Literature papers are due to IB on Friday. A lot of the writing workshop time I had planned for it were lost to snow days, and so we've had to get them done in a very short amount of time. It's intense. I need to get 84 decent essays off to Switzerland (or wherever they're being scored this year) in about 72 hours from now. All of my students are at various stages of completion and quality. It's intense. I'm kind of loving it, but I'm more excited to do it again next year, differently.
Baseball season, unbelievably, starts up next week. I'm not sure how that's going to go with all the snow, but I am looking forward to it. Today was the rules meeting, across town, another of my commitments today. It was a long one.
