My class is grumbling at me...

I’m sitting here watching my class take a test right now. They are all grumbling at me for making them do this the day before the Thanksgiving break starts. A lot of the other professors canceled today, based on the lack of cars in the parking lot when I got here. I can see that some of them are not that focused but to be honest, waiting for almost a week to do this after the break would be worse. Too much turkey makes for poor retention.

What they don’t realize is that they just have to do this test once then they can go home. I don’t plan on leaving today until all of the tests are graded. However long that takes. Because, like them, I don’t want to have to think about this class, or anything to do with work for the next few days.

Most of my family is coming over on Thursday, my sisters, the kids, aunt and uncle, grandmother. I just want to have fun and relax. So they can grumble all they want now but in the end, they won’t have to think about math for the rest of the week.

As a college student, I HATE having to take tests after a break. Its too easy to forget things.

That's exactly what I tried to convince them of but this is a class of freshmen. All they seem to want to do is put things off as long as possible.

Oh, they'll learn sooner or later (probably later). By the time they hit senior year (my year), they'll be begging, "please, please don't make us take a test after break."

Happy Break! :)
