Bluuurrggg......I've had a long slog of a day today. I don't mind giving exams, as I having been doing this week, it's just marking the bloody things. Why can't I have my own secretary to do that? The lesson this morning was a fairly half-baked affair. The joys of reading and summary writing.......I could see my students' eyes glaze over after about half an hour. They're a fairly hard working group, but you can only push out the material so far....we ended up chatting, about this and that, but university in particular: I stressing the need to keep their minds open, to experiment with their abilities, and above all, never be shy or afraid, the twin banes of my life.
