I've finally finished grading my first year Con Law exams; all that's left is to set the curve, which I'll do on Monday when my secretary gives me the spreadsheet with the exam scores integrated with the scores from the writing assignments. Unfortunately, I'm not quite done, as I still have a few papers from my National Security Law seminar to grade. Still, the light is at the end of the tunnel.
UPDATE: In a post that took a lot more thought than mine, Greg Goelzhauser points out:
Were I a student in Prof. Yin's seminar perhaps I would be feeling just a little upset. I presumably worked quite hard on this seminar paper all semester. If I liked Prof. Yin especially well, I may have even felt more pressure to do well. Perhaps the final result is something for which I'm quite proud. Etc.
A very good point on Greg's part, and I am naturally a bit chagrined. So I should make clear that the "unfortunately" refers to the general degree of antsiness that I always feel whenever there are outstanding tasks to be completed, and not to the task itself.
