1.Â Girding my loins and power-grading my way through a stack of final in-class essays, all of which are now doneÂ (YEEEEAH baby!).Â Â Summer vacation is three days away.Â I am so close I can smell it.Â All I need to do is give and grade 40 more final exams.Â I can do this.Â I can DO this.
2.Â Finding a way to clean bean burrito filling out of the keyboard at work.Â This is harder than it sounds.Â I will not reveal the step-by-step process here, as I may actually patent it someday, but I will say that it involves a coffee stirrer and a large amount of time.
3.Â Remembering to pray in the car on the way to work this morning.Â The day is always better when I do that.
4.Â Not ending the title of this post with a preposition.Â (Actually, I think it sounds kind of awkward; maybe it would’ve been better to be grammatically incorrect?)Â Oh well. Â When in doubt, do what the nuns taught you.
Come to think of it, that’s good advice to live by (or, you know, by which to live).
