Day 422

Wednesday | April 24th, 2013


I didn’t take any pictures today (these are back ups). I stayed home. I didn’t even bother to shower.

Exams are so-so. I had a student miss class last week, so I sent an email saying the usual stuff, “You have to contact me before the exam and blah blah blah.” Yesterday he came to class and didn’t say anything when I took attendance. He didn’t stick his head up until after I’d run all the exams for his class. He came up to me with another student wanting to take the exam and I shut him down. What would have been the point? He probably didn’t study; he didn’t have a partner to practice with if he did; he didn’t know what to do or even if he did he hadn’t received any guidance; he blew off or didn’t read or didn’t get my email; he had no excuse for missing class other than the usual “I was sick.” and didn’t bring a note so I could excuse it.

Yesterday this made sense to me; today I’m not so sure, Meow’s commentary burned, “You made another enemy.”
