Spring has possibly sprung at last
Today is fine and sunny. G has gone out for a walk. I'd love to go out for a walk too, but I have stuff to prepare for next week's teaching sessions.

I both love and hate this time of year. I love the improvement in the weather and the occasional warm sunny day and the new spring flowers. I hate that the end of the academic year is approaching with all the assignment deadlines. I hate having to nag my students to get things completed, but I have to do it if they're to pass their courses. :(

Oh, yes, I remember the ramping anxiety at this time of year. I hope you can get out and enjoy the lovely weather!

The anxiety has lessoned somewhat now I have prepared my lesson for next Wednesday. I haven't taught this module before, so I had to get to grips with the second assignment. Fortunately it doesn't involve as much work as I first thought, so as long as the students buckle down to work, we can finish everything by the deadline.

My oldest son has the same problems with his classes. :)

I'd really rather be a student because then I only have myself to think about! However, the anxiety has lessoned somewhat now I have prepared my lesson for next Wednesday.
