Last spring break was, to put it mildly, awful. I was feeling behind so when I scheduled all my course assignments, I had big projects all due the last day before spring break. Then I sat around alone in my apartment while it rained all week and I tackled piles and piles of grading and cried. It was not fun.
Spring break for this year is coming up soon and I have just looked at all my syllabi. This time around I have all of my big assignments, in all classes, due ---- yes, the Monday immediately after break.
What was I thinking? Couldn't I have gone for the happy medium and given myself half the assignments to grade over break and half afterwards?
No, because I am an idiot. And never let it be said that I do stupid things halfway.
