Grading and other obligations have amassed into a vortex which will keep me stationary and spinning this week. Today I basically need to wrap up my midterm grading. Tuesday I need to find an alternative way to pay my rent and internet bill because I haven’t been paid for my UTM TA work, meet with Dr. Neville about my proposal, prepare my tutorials for the week, and go to Judo. Wednesday I am out in Mississauga to teach back-to-back-to-back tutorials, followed by double office hours to help people with their forthcoming essays (the basis for my second, worse round of grading this term). Thursday a trip to the dentist will punctuate the completion of my application to the next Canadian Political Science Association conference. Friday I am back at UTM all day for a notes-and-photography assignment. Saturday, we have a double Judo class in the company of the intermediate and advanced classes.
