Snow, Unorthodox Grading Techniques, and An Old Friend

Last night as I was headed home from Mansfield I began to notice the rain falling horizontally instead of vertically, which, I thought was somewhat strange. Sure enough, upon arriving home, there was a fine dusting of snow on the deck. Now this morning I can see flurries. So it is first snow!

Quote of the day, the week, perhaps even the month: "I got your exam essays back. I'm sorry if my notes are illegible, I did it late last night, and I may have not had enough sleep. I may also have had too many glasses of wine...."

- One of my professors

So he may have been slightly stoned, but he gave a good critique of my papers, and an A, so you know, to them that's theirs.

I have two tests this morning. I'm not too worried about either of them... which could be a bad sign, but I think it will be fine, the professor in my Oral Comm class said the test would be easy, and in Social Stratification it may not be easy, but I got 100 on the first one just by looking at which of the answers best supported conflict theory and choosing it. I don't know what the average grade was for that test, so maybe he will make this one harder, or maybe I'm just really good at it... but who knows.

I got all my papers for SBI, so now I can start filling them out, and getting ready.

Last night I bumped into an old friend at Walmart... Kayla, we had been in Karate together back in the day. It's funny how running into someone like that, who even if you weren't very involved with personally, was part of an environment that you were very involved in, and then all of a sudden weren't, can bring back a lot of memories and make you think, it did for us at least. So that was cool.

God Bless,

Andrew
