Feeling the Burn

We only have one day left in the month of March. This means that my life is moving into chaos/crunch mode. I have my usual end of semester papers to write and I will be grading like mad. However, sometime, I have to find the time to actually write my Harry Potter paper. I am taking some of it from a previous paper written for a film class last semester. However, it will need adapting to the purpose of the conference. Anyway, I am already stressed.

Meanwhile, not much else is happening. I am working at the magazine and really enjoying it. So far, things are going well. Other than that, I really don't have much to say. Hopefully, things will improve and I will feel motivated to write!

It really makes me happy...

When I run into a student that I really like who is still doing really well in her life!

Tonight, at Barnes and Noble, I saw a student I still keep in contact with via E-mail. She is super creative and smart and I am really proud of her for daring to be herself and being enthusiastic about things she finds important. If only all of my students would turn out like her!
