>I'm sooooo grateful for my TA right now. Honestly, I felt terrible handing over a giant stack of grading to her yesterday, but there's no way I could handle that right now.
>I'm happy that I'm starting to learn to just laugh at the random excuses I get from my students who turn in late papers. And I got some crazy ones this week. Really, just laughing is better than tearing my hair out and dwelling on the fact that we're kinda screwed with the next generation. (Okay, I don't really think we're screwed, but I'll admit, teaching sometimes makes me wonder!)
>I'm grateful for my new in-person writing group. We've only met a couple of times now, but it's been really fun and helpful. Plus, it's just nice to talk about writing with other people in person--makes me feel a tad bit less crazy about the characters running around in my head.
>I'm grateful for my heater. Seriously, Missoula is *cold*! Thank heavens for being able to crank up the heat and at least have a few rooms that are warm!
Okay, so what are you grateful for today? :)
And some funnies (because I love the Nerd Girl meme):
