In the last five minutes before the grading deadline falls, I shall

consider the unknowability of all other humans, for what they do as students is inexplicable to me, including

  • attending class right until the very end, but nonetheless not turning in the one thing that will give them a passing grade
  • not dropping the course even though they have long since stopped attending
  • writing beautiful work--beautiful!--then disappearing, despite my plaintive entreaties to come back, come back--
and so on.

However, what I will not do in the last five minutes before the grading deadline is grade. Because I am finished.

I, too, found myself considering the inexplicable unknowability of the actions of those humans known as students. *sigh* At least, for now, the grading is done!

So good to see you last week. :)
