Well, today was the due date for my students‘ first essay, which means my inbox is filled with emails begging for last-minute extensions. After I gave them time in class to work on what is likely the easiest paper they‘ll write in college.

RaimeyGallant Lol. You should make having to ask for an extension more difficult. New rules, students! For an extension, you must 1. Take a selfie with you hugging a statue, 2. Take a picture of you cooking a Julia Child dish, and 3. Post something on Twitter that gets 50 retweets. It'll be easier just to write the paper. ;) 11mo
CouronneDhiver Fun. Stand your ground. It‘ll be worth it to them in the end 11mo

*SIGH*

So...this has been my last 2 months. The riveting world of Finance. I haven‘t had time for much reading at all lately, but the good news is this course is finished in 3 weeks and that my next courses should be much less demanding. Just wanted to let you guys know I‘m not dead!

All I want to do is sit and read my book but uni is making me do a maths assignment 😩

When I chose to do English & history teaching this is not what I had in mind!
