Well. Here we are! Today was yet another exciting day in the life of Joel.
I was incredibly close to telling Tim that I wouldn't be running with him this morning. Like... I stared at my phone for about 10 minutes trying to decide whether I should go work out or not. Ultimately, I decided to get up. And then I saw that it was cold and raining.
I wanted to go back to bed.
But I didn't, even though I really wanted to. Our workout was fine. For some reason it was super exhausting today. I think it was just that neither of us wanted to be there. Oh well.
I had my last meeting with the other GA instructors. We mainly discussed final exams and end of the semester reviews. We also talked about some of our various methods for instructing the particularly difficult topics (like conditional probability or confidence intervals).
After my meeting, I did some class preparation. Mostly it involved making up practice problems for my students to work in preparation for the final exam next week. Oh! And grading. Plenty of grading.
My research class had the last set of presentations today. They were pretty good. I asked lots of questions because... well, that's my thing. But they were all able to answer my questions sufficiently.
Then I went to go teach. Today was a review day, so... we reviewed. I guess it was fine. I have another review lesson on Friday, but there's no way I'm going to get through all of the remaining sections on Friday. So hopefully my students have started studying. That would be optimal.
When I got home, I determined that the best course of action was to be a lazy bum for a while. So I did and it was quite nice. Kimmy and I made ham and rice for dinner, then I got a little bit of work done... but mostly I just was a bum some more. And it was lovely.
Ok, time for bed. Good night.
