Marking, Marking, Marking...
In the past two weeks I have marked 105 senior essays, 60 short stories, 50 posters, and 45 character studies. I've also written around 145 reports and proofread around 400. If I never see a student's progress report as long as I live I would be very happy.
Of course it doesn't end there. I have another 45 essays to mark in the coming week. But then after that I get the semester break. And during that time I have my own writing to complete.
I'm not trying to elicit sympathy - just explain why this is a day late. And to explain to some friends why I haven't seen them much recently.
Oh well, back to marking. See you on the other side.
