yay! it's the last day of classes!

no matter how much I like my students -- there comes a point in the semester (usually about 2 1/2 weeks before the end of term) when I just don't want to see them anymore.

And, inevitably, if you teach 2 or 3 classes in a term, some become "good" classes and some "bad" classes -- it's all relative. But there is one group I'll be especially glad to wave good-bye to.

Of course the full-on celebration of summer can't quite start yet, since I still have papers and exams to grade, stacks of papers to weed through and file, and meetings to attend. But I'm going to leave the office tonight after my last class with a spring in my step . . .
