We're getting near the end of semester! I have only:
  • 5 more class sessions with my undergrads
  • 2 more class sessions with my graduate students

And, yes, I'm counting. Let's see, what else can I count?
  • 3 thesis defenses (and theses to read)
  • 5 letters of recommendation to write
  • 55 papers to grade
  • 29 final exams
  • 3 committee meetings
  • 1 department meeting
  • 2 department parties (one day, one evening)
I'm sure there's more, but that's a start. Oddly comforting to get it all down numerically. It seems much more manageable.
