I teach my last class tonight at 6:00!
And by "teach" I mean "watch" and by "class" I mean "demonstration of African dancing and drumming a bunch of other people are doing"
Just did my last batch of evals. Classic abject professor standing in hallway routine, like a chastised child. Pretty sure these evals are gonna be bad this time around but what can you do
The facilities guy just came in to check on me, because he saw me sitting in my office wearing my coat. "are you cold?" "Yes." "Why is your thermostat so low?" "WHAT?" "Your thermostat, it's turned all the way down." "I have a thermostat?" "Yeah, see this thing here, with the sign on it that says 'Do Not Touch The Thermostat.'" "I thought I wasn't supposed to touch that." "Well SOMEBODY touched it, because it's turned all the way down!" "Oh my god." He cranked it back up. Now it's toasty as hell in here, I am fucking stoked! Love that facilities guy!!! What can't he do? He is in charge of everything. I love him.
Gave my TAs their paltry token gifts. Wish I could give them a million dollars.
Had my last student presentations. Made them all applaud.
Lord have mercy!
After today I just have one meeting tomorrow and then thirteen oral exams on Friday
LOL what on earth am I gonna ask these kids in their oral exams?????? Better get crackin'
