This is my week off between finals week and the start of May Session and my summer session French class, which overlaps onto May session. So, my break is almost exactly one week, since my last final for Spring was Saturday at 8am. And so all I have been doing is compulsively reloading the grades page waiting for that last class' grade to post. Isn't there some sort of 72 hour rule about posting grades after the exam? I may want to explore Regent's and Senate policies. But even if I find that rule, what would I do about it? Sadly, I gave up being a CLA Senator years ago. But there is still that dream of being a Regent. (Maybe I always wanted the title of Honorable in front of my name.)
So, I dreamed that this week would be sunny and warm, in which case I could enjoy the outdoors and read while enjoying the sun. But instead it has been raining and crappy all week. And I have been spending too much time at work, and its been sucking all my energy away. That and I have been getting over some sort of spontaneous cold, where I was sick for about one day and now I have the week long lingering cough, which at times make me seem like I've got the consumption.
I could be doing many things with this time off:
1. get an oil change that I've put off since spring break
3. read some of the many books I've been piling up
4. Schedule appt. with Plumbing inspector for the water heater install
but instead, I decided to start a blog. Seemed like the right decision.
Anyway, I'll have lots o' time after my May session class. And by then the weather should be nice. (fingers crossed).
I also have been viewing C-Span2, watching the Senate debate the 'nuclear' option. I love watching the Senate, there's always some interesting speech going on. Sometimes its actually intriguing, sometimes completely insane, but always more fun to watch than the House.Posted by vorb0002 at May 19, 2005 12:49 PM
