I took the day off work to work. Well actually I took it off for a couple doctor appointments today. Usually I try to work on some writing between appointments but since it is the end of the year and I'm drowning in papers to grade. #teacherslife #teachersofinstagram #amgrading instead of #amwriting #dayoff
Super Bowl Sunday! I live an exciting life. In other words I'm staying home grading papers. I like to think of it as a glimpse into the life of an editor or agent. Actually I think I'd give a book deal to some of these. I'm often surprised at how talented some of my students are. I hope one day to see their name on a book. #amgrading #amreading #teacherslife #gradingpapers #gradingtime #readingglasses #redpen
The post-Trump moment feels strikingly reminiscent of the Civil War era. Hopefully we see plenty of James's postbellum Americans over the next four years. #amgrading #election2016 Brodhead, Richard H. "The American Literary Field, 1860-1890."

Spending the afternoon catching up on some grading and overcaffeinating myself. I'm about two hours in an I really want to quit but this dope hummus and pita is going to keep me going for a while. Later I'll grocery shop (got my meal planning done yesterday!) and make dinner for the boy and I and hopefully get my lunches prepped for the week too. What are you up to this #sundayfunday ?
