(actually, it ought to be #4 because I lost one...) so it's #3
somebody values your advice
I should hope so, since I spent 12+ hours yesterday grading graduate student essays. Some surprisingly good, some depressingly not so good. Though it's actually much harder for me to comment on the good essays -- same for undergrads -- esp the A- variety -- it's much easier to tell a C student what s/he has to do to improve.
But hey, I'm feeling happy now, because my grades are turned in! after a weekend which involved much procrastinating, and then staying up really late last night. But that's what Red Bull is for. (My college experience would have been so different if we'd that on hand...)
